Thoughts on The Cleaning Lady

ThoughtsThe Cleaning Lady is a horror thriller that will show that some people will never recover from the pain they are put through as a child, however much they try to fix themselves, creating a disturb individual that believes they are doing the right thing to help someone. This will fall into the same realm as most stalker like movies, where it starts friendly before getting out of hand. The story will keep you on edge as you wait to see what will happen next between the two women and how far Shelly will go to get her moment of peace. We do have great performances from Alexis Kendra who brings the bubbly side to her character, with her flaws, while Rachel Alig brings a much more disturbed role to life. The clash of the two worlds will make for an entertaining yet disturbing movie.

Final Thoughts The Cleaning Lady is a disturbing horror thriller.
