Homewrecker: Review


Michelle (Alex Essoe) is newly married and having concerns over having a baby with her husband, Robert (Kris Siddiqi). Then one day she meets Linda (Precious Chong) who is one of those very friendly, but slightly overbearing people everyone meets and can’t find it in your heart to reject.

As Michelle and Linda get talking, Michelle does her very best to try and let Linda know that she’s busy, but before she knows it Michelle is back at Linda’s place and having cocktails. Even though in the back of her mind Michelle knows that there’s something not quite right about Linda.

Homewrecker is a horror comedy directed by Zach Gayne and written with its stars, Alex Essoe and Precious Chong. As the story goes along it seems that Michelle was right about her instincts and things escalate rapidly as Linda becomes frustrated with the differences between them. Particularly because Michelle and Linda are from different generations. However, as more is revealed Michelle starts to realise that they have far more in common than she realised.

Smartly written and well played by its two female leads, Homewrecker is the kind of horror comedy that speaks to a current audience, but also pokes fun at both generations as Linda has a hard time letting go of her heyday in the early Nineties. Chong plays Linda with a little hint of there being something not quite right behind the eyes and keeps it up throughout as Michelle fights for survival.

The connection between Essoe and Chong is strong as well, so right from when they first meet to when they seemingly bond over a board game, the audience fully believes in their relationship, however twisted it may be.

The levels of physical violence between the pair never holds back, especially when Michelle has to fend off Linda’s sledgehammer with anything that she can get her hands on.

There’s even an impromptu Lisa Loeb karaoke performance which only heightens Linda’s madness and may be one of the funniest moments in the film. Homewrecker is a laugh out loud horror comedy that gives an audience everything they may want from the genre.

Joel found out that he had a talent for absorbing film trivia at a young age. Ever since then he has probably watched more films than the average human being, not because he has no filter but because it’s one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching experiences that a person can have. He also has a weak spot for bad sci-fi/horror movies because he is a huge geek and doesn’t care who knows it.
