In this English-language remake of a deconstruction in the way violence is portrayed in the media, a family settles into its vacation home, which happens to be the next stop for a pair of young, articulate, white-gloved serial killers on an excursion through the neighborhood. Written by
As torturous for the audience as it is for the main characters
This an oppressively dark twist on the home invasion genre which is as cruel to the audience as it is to the main characters. In it, two seemingly nice young men insinuate themselves into a family's house and then proceed to mercilessly torture them psychologically and physically, all with a rather smug arrogance which was very off-putting. The whole situation is very self-aware, as Paul (one of the youths) breaks the fourth wall several times. Still, this movie is a chore to watch, with many scenes of unbearable tension. This is a positive, but it wears down on the viewer, and when help never comes you wonder why you sat through this pretentious mess in the first place. Maybe it's supposed to be some commentary on violence, but to me it was empty and soulless.
