well-made if a bit ordinary...
7 June 2015 | by venusboys3See all my reviews

Except for the ending this is pretty much a well-made by-the-book home invasion horror tale. It looked good and the performances sold it. I was annoyed early on by the main characters... they're just the sort of rich city folk who move out to the country because it's 'charming' and proceed to ruin everything for the locals. The husband in particular seems like a self-centered jerk. Then bad stuff starts happening to them... and, though I never really found myself caring what happens to them, I did find myself rooting for the woman to at least make a good show of defending herself against the anonymous threat.

The real clincher is going to be how viewers take the ending. It's what sets the movie apart, it's the most interesting element... but it's also likely to rub many 'horror fans' the wrong way. For me it made sense and lifted the entirety of the movie to a higher level than if it had just... gone where I thought it was going.
