An energetic story with smart turning points and a good lead elevate "Treehouse," but it ultimately doesn't live up to its relevant themes.
It's halfway there, which is more than you can say about some of the installments of Into the Dark but less than this story deserves.
The final twist is particularly smart.
While we can't technically rely on the solutions presented in the film, we can't deny that TREEHOUSE forces us to discuss these very topics.
There's enough comedy in the first half and rousing feminist energy in the second to inspire a recommendation.
Treehouse is a funny and fast-moving tale of comeuppance with surprising story turns, a memorable lead performance, and some real heart.
As a horror story Treehouse is appropriately fearsome, features some genuinely chilling home invasion panic shots, and draws a phenomenally tortured role out of Jimmi Simpson.
The trouble is, the filmmakers don't properly set Peter up for what happens to him in Treehouse's second half.
Into the Dark: Treehouse's lackluster elements drag down the things that do work, and the whole thing feels forgettable by the end.
..."Treehouse" appears desperate to namecheck the issues of the day while failing to engage with those issues meaningfully.
Still, despite all that talent, Treehouse is possibly the series' worst installment yet.
