Don't Get Mislead By The Cover and True Blood Cast, 6 July 2013
Author: Film Watchin Fool from United States

Watch this are interested in watching a sub-par "serial killer" film, which has very little explanation. If you like watching people being killed in a house with no motive then you might enjoy it.

Acting/Casting: 5* - First off, don't be fooled by Moyer and Paquin on the cover because they don't see but about 15 minutes of screen time the whole film. The obvious is that they put in their small roles as a favor to Paquin's brother, Andrew, who wrote and directed the film. For the people that are actually in the film, they do an okay job. Geraghty oversold the psycho roll a bit, but wasn't terrible. Rachel Blanchard does a okay job as the captive divorcée. Tricia Helfer is an attractive specimen and does a nice job in the seductive murderer role.

Directing/Cinematography/Technical: 4.5* - The movie is pigeon holed a bit because it takes place primarily in a house and therefore doesn't lend itself much to work with. There is no doubt it was made on a strict budget, which makes for a lackluster product in most cases without a really creative director and Andrew Paquin isn't that due to lack of experience (directorial debut) and/or creativity.

Plot/Characters: 4.5* - Two siblings terrorize a recently divorced homeowner when they sneak in during an open house. Again, this is Andrew Paquin's first screenplay and it shows. The story has some loopholes and never gives complete explanation you wait the entire movie to see.

Entertainment Value: 5* - This is a marginally entertaining film, but isn't very satisfying when it is all said and done. If I recommend it to someone, then I would likely be ruining my reputation on what is a watchable movie.

My Score: 5+4.5+4.5+5 = 19/4 = 4.75
