Desperate to repay his debt to his ex-wife, an ex-con plots a heist at his new employer's country home, unaware that a second criminal has also targeted the property, and rigged it with a series of deadly traps.
After kidnapping and brutally assaulting two young women, a gang unknowingly finds refuge at a vacation home belonging to the parents of one of the victims: a mother and father who devise an increasingly gruesome series of revenge tactics.
A soldier introduces himself to the Peterson family, claiming to be a friend of their son who died in action. After the young man is welcomed into their home, a series of accidental deaths seem to be connected to his presence.
A family reunion turns into a full-on massacre when a gang of masked killers invade a sprawling country mansion on a ruthless mission of murder. Paul (Rob Moran) and Aubrey Davison (Barbara Crampton) are about to celebrate their wedding anniversary, and they've invited their grown-up children out to the country to share in the revelry. The first to arrive are Crispian (A.J. Bowen) and his new girlfriend Erin (Sharni Vinson). It isn't long before the rest of the family has filed in as well, and the party gets under way. Later, at the dinner table, old sibling rivalries begin to resurface and parental preferences quickly become apparent. Just as tensions begin to flare up, however, a crossbow arrow blasts through the glass window and panic sets in. The family is under attack. But who are the savage invaders donning eerie farm-animal masks, and what is their motive behind slaughtering everyone in the house? No one is safe as the blood starts to flow, but Erin is determined to see the ...
The masks in the film inspired the masks in the video game Hotline Miami. See more »
When Crispian is leaving and saying goodbye to Erin, in one shot their heads are nearly touching as they lean together. The shot then changes and their heads are far apart and Crispian is standing up straight, not leaning inward. See more »

Best final girl ever!
What to say about this film? A low-budget slasher film, with great kills and performances. Creepy masks, and very clever plot.
Let's get into detail. I really like the beginning. You feel that there is someone in the house. The usage of camera is somehow artistic (?) I didn't really liked this, but it's okay. I loved the fact that as they're eating they begin to bring into surface all the problems that they have each other. Jealousy etc.
The masks were kinda creepy, the killings are brutal, some of them sad, and very unique.
I really want to mention that every final girl should be like Erin. She's badass, heartless when it comes to kill the villains. It's actually the best representation! The plot is so clever! And the villains are so evil. Very convincing!
