Movie Review: The Butterfly Room


Be careful of your neighbors. And especially neighbors you are using to babysit your kid while you go off screwing around. Ann, the neighbor and main character of this movie has an obsession with butterflies. She in fact has a special room called the butterfly room that has all of her “pinned” butterflies. This reminded me of Silence of the Lambs and the killer loving his moths. And she is creepy about butterflies and little girls.

Barbara Steele is great in this movie. I think she would have been scarier though if she would have moved a little bit quicker in her actions. The little girl Julie does an adequate job. I hated the way they kept flipping back and forth again and again to Ann’s daughter in the bathtub. Way too much filler sequences. The ending was decent with the very last frame. I thought it was a pretty good horror film and give it a 7.
