Right at Your Door Reviews

August 24, 2007
[Director] Gorak succeeds in raising larger issues about societal paranoia, and the dangers of being too obedient and trusting of the powers that be.

August 24, 2007
Maybe this is how the world ends in LA -- not with a bang but a 96-minute whimper.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
August 24, 2007
One supposes that a start-to-finish interesting film could be made from this material, especially since this essential dilemma is so ripe with dramatic potential. But Gorak treats it like a vignette rather than a windfall event...

August 24, 2007
The poignancy of Right at Your Door lay in its real possibility in this volatile age.

August 23, 2007
I'd be lying if I didn't admit I wanted more from this, but for a while there Gorak and his team really did have me going.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
August 23, 2007
Though not a zombie film (if only!), Gorak's shuffling contagion thriller lumbers and groans like the living dead.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
August 23, 2007
Right at Your Door is a tick-tock of post-apocalyptic paranoia and moral ambiguity that would have made for some taut psychodrama on The Twilight Zone.
August 23, 2007
If Rod Serling had had a shot at penning a post-9/11 scenario for The Twilight Zone, it might have come out something like this compact and creepy suspense thriller of apocalypse, Los Angeles-style.

While this is admittedly not lighthearted mainstream fare, the subject matter is interesting and is handled in a manner that offers a compelling and sometimes unsettling 95 minutes.

August 22, 2007
There are no zombies to distract from the plausibility of Right at Your Door. And that's what makes this smart, coolly horrifying American indie thriller one of the scariest movies you're likely to see all year.

August 22, 2007
Filmmaker Chris Gorak's unflinching focus, admirably impossible choices and unromantic naturalism make it a damned sight better than the much-hyped TV-movie The Day After.
August 21, 2007
Despite being a talky movie, the writing and dialogue are mundane with characters inserting the F-word into every other line to try to make things edgier and more intense.
| Original Score: 5/10
August 20, 2007
Right at Your Door finds itself somewhat adrift.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
August 17, 2007
Listening to these two irritating people in a movie that's not scary is exasperating.
August 15, 2007
A healthy mixture of "On the Beach," and "Fail Safe," Chris Gorak's "Right at your Door" is possibly one of the most horrifying apocalyptic films I've seen in years...
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
August 7, 2007
If Gorak had made his characters more engaging he might have commanded a suspense level worthy of an Armageddon.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
June 13, 2007
An intimate disaster drama that gets under the skin like a virulent toxin.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
January 27, 2007
A vivid portrait of a town in crisis.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 23, 2006
A necessary counter-argument to the wave of patriotic 9/11 movies, this homes in on the other side of disaster and rings horribly true in the wake of the Washington anthrax scare and post-Katrina New Orleans.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 23, 2006
This is a powerful and well-told debut from Chris Gorak.
