On the surface Alice seems like a woman who has it all: a gorgeous apartment, a booming career, a stunning physique, and a handsome boyfriend. The only problem is he’s married to someone else. Looking for a way to simplify her life, Alice hires Shelly to clean her house. As Alice begins to confide in Shelly about her illicit affair, their friendship grows… and so does Shelly’s twisted obsession with her new employer. It soon becomes clear that Shelly has motives that reach further than a normal cleaning lady. Shelly wants to cleanse Alice’s entire life and will stop at nothing until she’s done.

The film delivers this compelling message through over an hour of mind-numbing plot development that aims to spell out every little nuance to you and then about twenty minutes of boring anti-climactic plot "climax" and an unsatisfying ending.
I was really hoping for more crazy, but instead just got some actress who's obviously very extroverted and has a healthy social life in real life trying to pretend to be introverted and awkward while wearing about five layers too many of something you'd buy from Hot Topic to cover up an acne scar.
Can't really think of a single redeeming quality to the movie, so gonna have it to give it a single star.
Please read this review to the end. Thank you.
The following is my opinion:
Not a movie (a portion from the cutting room floor strung together?)... No character development... No plot; the "movie" most like an incomplete fleeting thought(s)... Unscripted? No need for a writer to come up with this dialog (what little there is)... Not low-budget, more like no-budget (right down to the Kindergarten origami wall decorations); props appeared to be a mix of leftovers from several garage sales... A complete waste of time.
Spoiler Alert! Movie Summary: A female apartment-based esthetician tries to leave an adulterous relationship with a married man but fails -- repeatedly. She takes pity on and hires/befriends an abused, disfigured, filthy, economically-challenged woman as her cleaning lady. The latter becomes jealous of the former's "Barbie doll" looks and lifestyle which oddly motivates her to (in her addled mind) perfect/purify the esthetician using the following "methods":
1. Go beyond cleaning to include pest removal services [pest = rat(s)]
2. Assist the esthetician in smoking cessation
3. Assist the esthetician in ending the adulterous relationship by forcing her to murder the married man, and...
4. Attempting to kill the now-purified esthetician, apparently before she has an opportunity to soil herself again
Throughout the "movie" are flashbacks showing how the cleaning lady was abused by her mentally ill mother (verbal abuse, physical abuse, forced child prostitution); this abuse culminates with her mother flinging boiling water in her daughter's face resulting in the latter's facial disfigurement. In retaliation, the daughter somehow (not shown or described) manages to incarcerate her mother in an empty tool shed and force her to eat raw rats -- fur, blood, tails, claws, and all -- after a trip through a blender. Included are other gratuitous random scenes of the esthetician visiting her personal trainer at a gym for the apparent purpose of showing off her generous bust and slim physique.
Above all, I feel that this movie evinces a depraved mind, regardless of human life as do so many other more recent and contemporary movies of the thriller, slasher, and/or horror genres. Furthermore, It is not a coherent whole, has no cohesive ending, and is pointless. I wish I had not been too tired to turn it off yet too awake to close my eyes or select a more productive, enjoyable use of my time. I remain thankful that the actual child prostitution and rats being blended alive were not depicted.
