Critic's Review Heading
Very Poor
Hush has three very simple problems: it's incredibly dumb, it's incredibly boring, and it's incredibly predictable (at least up to the stupefying ending). Most entries into this worn-out, worm-eaten genre aren't especially good. Films like Consenting Adults, The Hand that Rocks the Cradle, and Single White Female rely on stock plots and predictable twists to propel the narrative along. In general, however, they're directed with a degree of competence that assures a level of sustained tension. That's not the case with really bad thrillers like this, which fail to generate even a momentary heart palpitation -- the characters are too bland and the plot is too uninvolving for anyone in the audience to care. Indeed, the title of this movie probably refers to what the producers hope viewers will do in lieu of telling their friends what they really think of this sorry piece of celluloid.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Helen has met the man of her dreams. Handsome, loving, and from a well-to-do family, Jackson Baring is a young professional with a bright future on Wall Street. When Jackson takes Helen home for the holidays to Kilronan, his mother's sprawling horse breeding estate in the lush Kentucky countryside, she is awestruck by the stately, resplendent farmhouse that seems the ideal spot for a picture-postcard Christmas. At Kilronan, Helen meets Martha Baring, Jackson's mother and 'the other woman' in his life. A radiant widow passionately devoted to her only son, Martha's genteel Southern charm spills over like molasses. Having grown up without parents, Helen instantly warms to this impressive woman, the larger-than-life grand dame of Kilronan who has single-handedly held the farm together since Jackson's father's death.

Beneath Martha's refined Kentucky smile, however, lurks a woman with an agenda-to bring her son back to Kentucky to take over his birthright, Kilronan. The one threat to Martha's plan is her son's new lover, whose dream of domestic happiness is about to become a nightmare. Put directly in Martha's unforgiving path, Helen becomes little more than a puppet with her mother-in-law pulling the strings. Soon, she begins to suspect that Martha has engineered a variety of troubling coincidences around the estate and has told lies to cause several misunderstandings between the newlyweds…

Slowly, Helen learns that Martha's seemingly innocuous over-mothering masks a deeply distressed woman who needs to control those around her. As Martha's manipulations escalate, Helen is lured into a vicious web of deceit and betrayal until she discovers, almost too late, that her mother-in-law is not only disturbed but dangerous. Ultimately, the young woman finds herself trapped in a desperate fight for her marriage, her newborn baby and, finally, for her very life in the fiery conclusion of Hush.
