Movie Info

Following the tragic death of their young daughter, the Hughes family decide to escape to their upscale vacation home in the woods. But their attempt to get some quality time together is violently interrupted when a neighboring family with a hidden agenda drops by for dinner. First-time director Jeremy Regimbal builds tension to a calculated and ultimately brutal crescendo in this home-invasion thriller. Starring Selma Blair, Joshua Close, James D'Arcy, and Rachel Miner. -- (C) Tribeca

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.

While we can see everything coming from a mile away, director Jeremy Power Regimbal does a great job with [the basic] screenplay.

That the film ultimately reveals itself to be about redemption and the process of healing over hopelessly succumbing to evil also gives the proceedings an added layer of worth and freshness.

An unnaturally clumsy horror-thriller.

Offers a slightly more socially relevant motive than simply "crazy guy wants to kill family," and it works.

Winds up turning itself into just a rote thriller about psychos learning that, appearance notwithstanding, every family has dysfunctional problems.

I like the creepy neighbours character but the movie didn't have enough energy, was just very lazy, predictible and bah....

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.

A nice little home invasion thriller which doesn't seem realistic at all. I like the dark colour and scary camera angels but it was too predictable and too long, also there are a lot of unnecessary details in the film that the viewers really do not need and made the film really tedious. The characters are really stupid as well, it drives me nuts when they don't do what you would expect normal people to do. Selma Blair made the film bearable.
