Maggie (Leslie Easterbrook) has lost it of late: She has been a loving wife and mother of four, but of late, whe has been listening to televangelist pastor John (J.D. Hart) a few times too often, has invited him home a few times too often, has taken in his words without second-guessing them a few times too often, and somehow she has just gone off-rail. The first who has noticed it was her husband (Kane Hodder), who one day just wants to leave her and send for the kids later on - upon which she kills him, then puts his body in the freezer. Of course she tells the whole world her husband has run off with another woman, then convinces herself she has become too fat for him, and she plays the innocent victim well enough for pastor John, who is pretty much a pervert in a sheep's skin, to fall for her. She also soon claims she is unfit for work, and thus forces her first daughter (Michele Grey) into prostitution, and when she acts up, Maggie shoots her into the shoulder, cuffs her into the bathroom and lets her die slowly. Daughter number two (Katie Holland) tries to escape, but stumbles upon dad's body, so Maggie lets her other kids beat her to a pulp, then locks her into the closet where she painfully dies within a week. Then it's up to daughter number three, Grace (Randi Jones), to sell her body to feed the family. Only Maggie's boy Billy (Cody Allen) is in her favour, mainly because he does her bidding and helps her hide the bodies - but not as well as he's supposed to ...

A deeply disturbing, well acted and subtly directed film, The Afflicted is unfortunately a bit let down by its narrative build-up - or rather lack thereof. Basically, for a film like this to work on story level, it requires a decent set-up before going to hell in a downward sprial. The Afflicted though just starts somewhere deliberate and goes to hell in a straight line, no twists, no turns, no stops, no scenes of relief, no nothing.

Having said that, I have to admit I guess that's exactly what writer/director Jason Stoddard wanted to achieve with The Afflicted, a film that's at least in part based on actual events and that has a certain unpolished, intentionally bleak style to it - which all results in one thing: It's a really disturbing movie ... well, mission accomplished I guess.
