On a snowy eve, Little Holly’s sister and father are killed by her frantic mother. Years later, Holly is married, lonely, and her life is soon about take a turn for the ultra weird, when she visits “Umbrella of Love and Mind”.

Housewife opens up with two sisters and one has just started her womanly thing if you know what I mean. Next thing you know she faces the wrath of a crazy mother (her mother) and then things get a little bloody. We fast forward to modern times when the other little girl is all grown up, but something still isn’t right with her. And things then start to get even more strange. Strange with her, her husband, and everything around her. The movie tries really hard to perhaps be one of those trendy “elevated” horror movies that are all the rage these days, but I think this one doesn’t manage to fully achieve that goal and the end results is a whole lot of trip. A whole lot of sizzle with very little steak to go along with it. It is because of that I’m not sure this one will be hitting with everyone who might be giving it a day in court on their very own TVs.

When you watch something like this, you can tell that they are putting their all into it. The cast is trying and the director has a clear vision. Unfortunately, I don’t know if they go the best way about getting this vision out there, as it just looks like another movie trying to get all fancy and make things look a lot like the other more popular artsy horror movies that can be found out there. Not every movie can be Midsomer and this one is an example of just that fact. It looks nice, even if they didn’t have the biggest budget they made what they had look good on screen. But at the end of the day, I don’t think I was ready for what this one was offering up, even with the solid cast behind it.
