During her last month of pregnancy, the young Chicago photographer, Sarah Clark, has a hideous car crash that claims her husband's life. Widowed, alone, and emotionally scarred, Sarah is about to spend her first Christmas Eve after the terrible incident without her loved ones; when, suddenly, a knock at the door in the middle of a rainy night will lead to a nightmarish home invasion. Now, an obsessive woman in black wants something precious from her, hell-bent on getting it at all costs. Can Sarah survive this blood-drenched night of terror?Written by
Comparisons to the original are through rose-coloured glasses
This movie is not great. It's fine, because the premise was good to begin with, and the actors are reasonable. There are big logic holes, but to say this isn't a flaw of the original is not accurate. It had just as many inconsistencies. To say the police act stupidly in this version is a reasonable critique, but they also did in the original in different ways. The original is definitely gorier and more bleak, and probably better overall, but to say one was a 10 and the other is a 1 is a bit ridiculous. It's a passable time-waster, and for those not enamoured with gore, this would be the better choice of the two.
