The Curse of Downers Grove would probably have been an OK by-the-book revenge/payback thriller with elements of home invasion in line with I Spit On Your Grave and An Eye For An Eye... if it wasn't for the absolutely out of nowhere W.T.F. ending, which just leaves you wondering what the hell that was all about.
