Brother and sister Matthew, Alex Knight (“Narcos: Mexico (TV)”, “Legion (TV)”), and Abigail, Catharine E. Jones (“Preacher (TV)”, “The Night Shift (TV)”), are busy cleaning out their deceased fathers study.

The pair are very different, with Abigail seemingly the one who has her shit together and Matthew, more of a loner, drifter type, always making light of things.

As the pair begin the job at hand, it’s clear that they don’t always see eye-to-eye. They fall out, make up and fall out again and again.

When Abigail finds a large box packed full of VHS videos marked ‘home movies’, the pair decide to watch one, unable to remember their father as a guy who’d spend a lot of time with a camcorder in hand.

Turns out, he wasn’t, for these aren’t home movies, these are porn movies, of the cheesiest kind and the pair now can’t get the image of their father, alone in his study watching these movies, out of their heads.

Written and directed by Keagan Karnes (“Good Cop, Good Cop (Short)”, “Shotgun (Short)”), Home Movies is a lot of fun, with a particularly great ending. It’s nicely made and our two leading protagonists perform well in their respective roles.
