DIRECTED BY: Jon Knautz

On the surface Alice seems like a woman who has it all: a gorgeous apartment, a booming career, a stunning physique, and a handsome boyfriend. The only problem is he’s married to someone else. Looking for a way to simplify her life, Alice hires Shelly to clean her house. As Alice begins to confide in Shelly about her illicit affair, their friendship grows… and so does Shelly’s twisted obsession with her new employer. It soon becomes clear that Shelly has motives that reach further than a normal cleaning lady. Shelly wants to cleanse Alice’s entire life and will stop at nothing until she’s done.

The Cleaning Lady shows us a disturbed young lady with a disfigured face and a very bad past as she becomes the cleaner for a woman with problems of her own. Things seem to gel well enough for the two at first, but we are well aware the new cleaning woman has some major issues and we know its only a matter of time before something happens. That part eventually comes as you’d expect, but it is kind of a slow-moving movie at times until we get to that part and some of the movie’s highlights are in a flashback form. You end up kind of just wanting to see a whole movie of the flashback portion rather than the part we are mostly seeing.

That part has her with a young woman who is having an affair with a married man and that part adds some new elements to the story that you might not otherwise get, but the general conflict of her trying to stop herself from seeing the guy and the buildup to all of that is kind of dull before it picks up steam in the last part of the film. I feel the overall story of the movie is OKAY but we need more blood and we probably need more of a body count as well. This movie is one that could have probably benefited from going to slasher city to spice things up a bit but as a psychological movie with some darker moments it ends up making for a good once over the movie but perhaps not much else.
