It hasn't been easy for Hannah (Madeleine Masson), basically ever since her dad has died, but gradually she has found new friends who stick by her - even if her slightly overbearing mother Silvia (Karen Leigh Sharp) insists they're trouble. It's pretty traumatizing though when her new boyfriend Andy (Christopher Rector) dies in a hunting accident, and to later find out that her best friend Raven (Lexy Ronning) has had sex with him behind her back doesn't make it any better - and really leads her to beat up Raven pretty badly. Consequently, Raven does not show up for Andy's funeral - and it soon turns out she has disappeared altogether. This is unsurprisingly all the more unsettling for Hannah, and it doesn't help at all that Silvia somehow links both Andy's death and Raven's disappearance to Hannah's (allegedly) unstable state of mind. Eventually, Silvia suggests for both of them to skip town and start anew, and that's when Hannah, who so far has actually doubted her mental health, starts to suspect there's something dangerously wrong with her mother ...


In a way, Twisted is a coming-of-age film as dark as they come: It's set in front of (beautifully filmed) gloomy backdrops, the central mother-daughter relationship is unsettling within itself and not taking the murders into account even, there seems to be some extra maliciousness in the outbreaks of violence, and the ending is disturbingly ambivalent - and all of this, hand in hand with the film's deliberately slow pace, is what makes the movie so powerful, as it manages not only to tell its story but create a haunting place all of its own. And of course, an uniformly solid cast also helps make this a pretty disturbing but all the more rewarding genre movie.
