This movie reminds me of many other films I had watched and they all seem like simple horror/thrillers without any special depth or meaning. But look closely. Almost in all of these flicks there are white, rich, good looking, pleasant, upstanding families (always family with those annoying cute children) against The Others. Who are those others? Poor. Degenerate, immoral, stupid, isolated from the real world and living in their own wretched places;ready to shoot without any reason... just for fun. But it is not merely about some brutal games; it is about their resentment towards successful. It's envy that motivates them because they (poor)are told by society they are idiots,lazy, brutal, prone to vice so they get nothing that "good" citizens enjoy. Brutes get none and the only joy in life seems according to all those movies is tormenting good citizens. They can't have what wealthy do so they would torture and kill out of pure jealousy. Watch when they observe the luxurious cottage. Their eyes ooze with hate mixed with envy. The only way they can get even is to terrorize good upper middle class and they do it for some time - just to give viewers necessary thrills. But fortunately goodness prevails and police is there to restore order to our relief. Happy ending is imminent(minus brother who does play minor role and can vanish without a pity).The movie shows tendency about what our world is slowly becoming: returning to Victorian times with their strict social order and moral judgement about rich, middle class,and poor - who all get what they deserve. And for wretched ... well there will be noting but misery of their own doing But wait: there are more and more of those destitute souls because of messy economy. And then what? Will Hollywood dare to continue this negative portrait of new impoverished masses? Be warn. You and me may find ourselves among them.
