Goofs

When Elisa's mother calls the house it diverts to her cell and appears as 'Mom' on the caller ID. When the officer calls the house and it diverts it should therefore appear as a cell phone number, but in fact it says 'Home'. See more »

Quotes

Sarah: I just have one rule that I need you to respect. I do not want the two of you to be alone in your house or this house if I am not here.
Elissa: You are *never* here.

Alternate Versions

-SPOILER- The most significant addition is a 30-second scene where it's revealed that Officer Weaver was deeply involved in the events that transpired before the movie, basically implicating him for much of what happened. The PG-13 omits this twist entirely. When Ryan stabs Officer Weaver toward the end of the movie, Weaver says, "I protected you all these years", clearly implying that he was involved in the events that transpired before the movie. That statement by Officer Weaver is in the PG-13 version of the movie, so while it may not be complete, it is not omitted entirely. See more »

Better than expected
13 July 2013 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

This is an above average horror movie.

First the good points: The cast is A list - after all 2 Oscar winning actresses as daughter and mother - Jennifer Lawrence and Elisabeth Shue (who hasn't aged much). Max Thieriot (now of Bates Motel) is their next door neighbour who lives in a house where his parents were murdered. The acting is good and there is some build up of sympathy with the characters in the story.

It's not supernatural so it's not too implausible. Doesn't have too many shock tactics. I'm kind of sick of the recent supernatural horrors with Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz and the one with Katie Holmes and Bailee Madison. It's not too slasher like too. No violence that doesn't advance the plot.

It's got some faults: Firstly the closeup photography is a bit too close up. Can't see the whole face. A bit jerky too.

There is a twist of course which is not totally unpredictable.

Overall kind of enjoyed it.
