Storyline

In order to get away from their busy lives, the Wilson family takes a vacation to Santa Cruz, California with the plan of spending time with their friends, the Tyler family. On a day at the beach, their young son Jason almost wanders off, causing his mother Adelaide to become protective of her family. That night, four mysterious people break into Adelaide's childhood home where they're staying. The family is shocked to find out that the intruders look like them, only with grotesque appearances.

Goofs

If the tethered were created to mimic their above ground counterparts, it doesn't make sense that the real Adelaide mimicked her tethered clone above ground all theses years. Her shadow should have been controlled from below. It's never explained why that power has switched. See more »

There are thousands of miles of tunnels beneath the continental United States...

Abandoned subway systems, unused service routes, and deserted mine shafts...

Many have no known purpose at all. See more »

User Reviews

 
A lot of hype, but not fully satisfying.
21 March 2019 | by ksmart73See all my reviews

I hate saying this, but this film is the product of when you've got incredible everything and an underdeveloped script. The concepts are great, but lose their value and appreciation because there is so much with so little explanation, leaving me with the impression that they were not completely thought-out. Acting was incredible, cinematography, lighting, set design, and sound track were wonderful too! It's just that the script and story does not fully deliver. It's so conceptual that it loses horror, yet so rushed in execution that it loses coherence.
