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.
| Original Score: 5.8/10
Winds up turning itself into just a rote thriller about psychos learning that, appearance notwithstanding, every family has dysfunctional problems.
| Original Score: 2/4
Dies a horrible death in the second half, which is a crying shame when the opening is so strong and uniquely disturbing.
| Original Score: C-
An unnaturally clumsy horror-thriller.
| Original Score: 3/10
Sadly, Jeremy Power Regimbal's intense drama doesn't offer anything significant to a horror genre filled with superior choices.
| Original Score: 2.0/5.0
Good performances and atmospheric direction aren't quite enough to elevate this home-invasion thriller above genre clichés.
Offers a slightly more socially relevant motive than simply "crazy guy wants to kill family," and it works.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
More polish could have made this alarming psycho-drama resonate better, but even as it stands it's a nerve-racking good time.
| Original Score: B
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.
| Original Score: 3/4
An unnerving home-invasion thriller.
