More polish could have made this alarming psycho-drama resonate better, but even as it stands it's a nerve-racking good time.

An unnerving home-invasion thriller.

Good performances and atmospheric direction aren't quite enough to elevate this home-invasion thriller above genre clichés.

Dies a horrible death in the second half, which is a crying shame when the opening is so strong and uniquely disturbing.

The most frustrating thing about Jeremy Power Regimbal's directorial debut is there's part of a very effective thriller here. It's just not the good part.

Sadly, Jeremy Power Regimbal's intense drama doesn't offer anything significant to a horror genre filled with superior choices.

Struggling to cope with the death of their young daughter, Blair and Close head off to a remote home in the Pacific Northwest, attempting to save their marriage. There they meet neighbors D'Arcy and Miner who they invite to dinner. Unable to deal with their guests odd behavior, Blair and Close kick them out, only for them to return with guns and invade the couple's home.
D'Arcy played the role of Anthony Hopkins in the recent 'Hitchcock' biopic and his resemblance to the 'Psycho' star adds an extra element of creepiness to his role here. Sadly, he's really the only standout in an otherwise dull and cliched affair. The dinner scene is quite tense but the movie's second half does nothing new with its home invasion plot. The film is shot in ugly grey tones which are no doubt intended to reflect its somber mood but it makes for grim viewing in all the wrong ways.
