Real estate agent John Dante has a problem. He's stuck with a house he can't sell. Despite his best efforts, he can't seem to overcome the house's past and the macabre tales that precede it in this haunting anthology. In the first story, THE MORNING AFTER, a group of friends wake up from the party of a lifetime to find a nightmare in the form of the worst bug invasion any homeowner has ever seen. Then there's Freddie Cooper and his band, FREDDIE AND THE GOBLINS; a tale of how Freddie's band mates try to kick him out and get caught up in the young singer's growing psychosis. With his hopes of selling the house fading, John is horrified to hear the story of Robbie, a young veteran of the war in Iraq, who returns home to live with his father Brad in FATHER LAND. Something isn't right, though, as Robbie's dark secret slowly bubbles to the surface. As the house's dark past comes to life, John becomes weary and is convinced the house is cursed and unsellable.

She may have to wait a while due to all the meetings and phone calls he has to take. However, it is not talking on a cell phone while driving that gets him pulled over by the police. It is speeding and not wearing a seat belt. Admittedly, he is going to have to move quickly if he wants to save his production company, Moon Films, which has a lot in stake on the production of a Swedish film, "Saturn." For its first half, "Father of My Children" is a compelling portrait of self-destruction, as Gregoire finds himself falling deeper and and deeper into a hole. At the same time, it may be the only sympathetic portrayal of a film producer on record. Usually, they are depicted in a range from philistine pains to Satan("Contempt.") But in the second half, the movie unsuccessfully tries to bring closure, adding an unnecessary subplot to the brew. Personally, I would have gone darker but that's why I'm not a film producer. I lack commercial instincts and would probably only try to fund three hour Hungarian epics. And from what I can see of clips from Gregoire's films, his instincts might be similar which is what got him into the mess in the first place.

The overall look, style and tone of the film was very well done, I loved it. the acting by the cast was very good aswell. The story was a good one but at times just dragged. I didnt like all the music but some of it was great.
