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

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...

Right at Your Door finds itself somewhat adrift.

[The film] grabs the viewer by the throat in the first few minutes, but quickly fritters away involvement by concentrating almost exclusively on two characters who are both annoying and boring.

As frightening as it intends to be, but not enjoyably so.

The agitated, theatrical dialogue reaches frenzied, jackhammer proportions even during the film's supposed quiet moments; it's thoroughly draining.

Another overstretched Rod Serling episode with misplaced irony that provides so many false moments of its own that its impossible to take seriously.

Maybe this is how the world ends in LA -- not with a bang but a 96-minute whimper.

If Gorak had made his characters more engaging he might have commanded a suspense level worthy of an Armageddon.

Though not a zombie film (if only!), Gorak's shuffling contagion thriller lumbers and groans like the living dead.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

Movies about moral choices work if we can relate to the characters' motivations, but that never happens here.

What starts out as a horrible, even tragic set-up ends up feeling more like a so-so episode of The Twilight Zone.

Listening to these two irritating people in a movie that's not scary is exasperating.

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.

[Stars] Cochrane and McCormack have zero chemistry and their characters are so different that they never compute as a couple.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 24, 2007
McCormack and Cochrane can't transcend the cliched, meandering dialogue, so Brad and Lexi's dilemma never feels like anything but a didactic contrivance.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

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.
