Bleak psychological thriller
8 August 2013 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Troubled, bitter, and hot-tempered Roger (a solid and credible performance by Marc Rose) returns home for Christmas so he can reconcile with his estranged sister Brooke (a sturdy portrayal by Frankie Ingrassia). Things go nightmarishly awry when Brooke's hostile and antagonistic alleged boyfriend Marcus (forcefully played with frightening intensity by Ross Kurt) crashes the party and starts torturing everyone with cruel mind games. Writer/directors Bob Hardson and Rich Robinson astutely capture the darker, more cynical, and stressful side of the yuletide season in which people not only bicker and get on each other's nerves, but also grim family secrets are gradually revealed throughout the duration of the evening. Moreover, the angry and confrontational tone gives this picture an extra fierce kick to the guts, the startling moments of harsh violence are quite gruesome and nasty, and the uncomfortable tension steadily builds towards a devastating downbeat ending. The sound acting by the capable cast keeps the movie on track: Besides the impressively aggressive work by Kurt and Rose, there are praiseworthy contributions by Scoot McNairy as the sarcastic Charles, Jade Dornfeld as the unhappy, yet assertive Gwen, and Samantha Shelton as the catty Kate. Nelson Craig's rough'n'grainy cinematography provides an appropriately gritty look. George Shaw's shivery orchestral score hits the spine-tingling spot. Unpleasant for sure, but undeniably effective and unsettling just the same.
