They are hardworking community members; giving to their local charities, attending town hall meetings and always respectful of their neighbors...except for the fact that they usually end up killing them.

Fresh: ultimately The Hamiltons is still a damn solid film.

Rotten: Not even the few moments of grim humor and bloodletting can salvage the flick's leaden pacing and overbaked narrative.

I'm going to be generous here and chalk up all of the problems that I had with this film to "budget restrictions". I'll follow that up by saying that I think the basic premise here is intersting and while there have been variations of this "theme" over the past several years...I think this film had a (rather) fresh approach to it. One of the main issues I had is that it felt like they just couldn't decide (character wise) what they were going for here. At times their approach felt very "tongue in cheek", some parts felt like they were going for "deep, dark and brooding" and at times it felt like they wanted that "torture/horror" feel that seems to be all the rage lately. Each of which can be effective in the horror genre, but are very difficult to do (WELL) all in one film. Had they decided on one or even narrowed it down to two, it may have been better. Making this even more of a challenge was the acting, which was mediocre and slightly cartoonish at times. And the dialog was often times painfully bad. As a first/early film for the Butcher Brothers, it's impressive. As a horror film in general...it is simply o.k.
