A wickedly clever play on the genre that takes you by the scruff of the neck and drags you through 90 minutes of the most inventive mayhem, murder, and pitch-black comedy you're likely to see this year.
Although there's a twist in this tale, most of it - the brutal home invasion, the anonymous creeps in spooky masks - is stuff we've seen before. And Wingard doesn't think of a new way to show it, either ...
Wingard does pull off a few stylish setpieces: He is clearly talented. But the movie, which was shot two years ago and has been kicking around the film festival circuit since then, feels dated and trite.
