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

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