IR­RI­TAT­ING SCUM­BAG AMY makes life mis­er­able for her adop­tive par­ents, un­til they move to the coun­try and Amy be­comes friends with lo­cal girl Chloe. At first it seems as though Chloe might be a calm­ing in­flu­ence, but it turns out that Chloe has more sin­is­ter mo­tives for get­ting close to the fam­ily, and Amy finds she has to fight for the fam­ily she has been try­ing to es­cape. De­spite a fairly short run­time it takes a lit­tle while to re­ally get mov­ing, but it blos­soms into a tense thriller once it does. The mood is height­ened by War­ren El­lis’ brood­ing score; Sa­mara Weav­ing in par­tic­u­lar wows with a trans­for­ma­tion from sweet­ness to men­ace in a fully com­mit­ted per­for­mance. TK
