"The Stepfather" on a farm. In England. With less tension.

For all those Terry O'Quinn junkies, who fondly remember The Stepfather, there's another clone of that venerable "family in peril" thriller. Again, a messed-up guy with a dark past suddenly ingratiates himself into the lives of a struggling family. Appearing too good to be true, the eldest daughter remains skeptical, not trusting him or his motives, despite the rest of the family's wholehearted acceptance. It plays out exactly the same as The Stepfather, though with somewhat less tension. It's not much of a spoiler to say that bodies start piling up rather quickly.

It's not a bad movie, but it's a complete rehash. I chose to be a bit generous with my rating, since I thought the film was fairly well done, even if the story is a complete and utter ripoff of a cult classic. It's an inoffensive way to pass the time, and I'm sure there are plenty of people who've never seen The Stepfather -- to them, the plot will probably seem fresh and exciting. I'd recommend that they check out the original 1987 classic, though. Terry O'Quinn was amazing.

Has it's moments..

In the countryside of England, lonely farmer Nancy raises her daughters Hanna and Amy with financial difficulties in her farm with her only employee Cooper since her husband has disappeared a long time ago. Her neighbor Karsten and his son intend to buy her farm and are pressing the family in an abusive way. Out of the blue, wanderer Aden appears in the farm and helps Nancy with the delivery of the offspring. Aden explains that he was a friend of her husband Dean in an offshore rig and he offers to work for food and lodging. Nancy accepts the offer and soon she has a love affair with Aden. But either Nancy or Aden have dark secrets. Although the acting isn't that bad The Holding seems like a remake of Stepfather that instead of a big city it's set in a countryside on England and sure it does have some good moments but besides that it's very mediocre and i'll give it an 6.4/10

Nancy accepts the offer and soon she has a love affair with Aden.....

Another one of those silly British movies that is all gritty and dirty looking, but trying to be the new 'thriller' or something.

This film fails on every level.

For a start the film has no plausibility about it, as no one would ever let a stranger stay in their house if they just appeared out of th blue, and the transformation from normal bloke to psychopath is just laughable.

When you look at it from another angle, the film ha no real meaning to exist. It just happens, in a very boring and predictable way.

Boring stuff, with a few minor distractions.
