“There are some cleverly sick twists in the plot, and Katherine Heigl is admirably game to send herself up. But director Anthony Burns and screenwriters Carlo Allen, Ted Elrick, and Tom Lavagnino end up undermining their material with some choices that soften the impact of a story that’s intended to be edgy. You can’t make a “nice” movie about murder.” The Aisle Seat
“All in all, with a juvenile script, a desperate side role for James Belushi, and a clear, direct-to-video stench, Home Sweet Hell doesn’t deviate from cliches, it glorifies them. If disposing a body in heavy rainfall is new to you, well you’ve obviously never ventured into the realm of bad cinema […] Bottom line: Seriously avoid this stinkpot.” Views on Film
