Wasn't expecting much, received even less. The characters are wooden and the acting is poor. Hell, the first half of the movie, you want to kill the family yourself, because they are so annoying and stupid. The concept is interesting, but the execution is terrible. The "twist" is so obvious by the bad acting and the poor dialog. I figured it out 10 minutes into the movie, they make it very obvious. The very ending of the movie was probably the best part. It was dumb, but at least it was funny. The filming is terrible, shaky camera work and zooming in on everything. Most of the people die because they're stupid, not because the bad guys are clever. It's not even worth a free rental at Redbox.
