After her father Isaac's murder, Shaun Russell travels to the house she grew up in with her two children, daughter Jasmine and son Glover. Shaun intends to settle her father's estate and sell the remotely-located house, which has multiple security features, including a hand-held remote monitor. The security system is off-line at their arrival, but is soon reactivated by Jasmine. Unknown to the family, four criminals - Peter, Sam, Duncan, and their leader Eddie - are already in the house. Jasmine and Glover are taken hostage while Shaun is outside. Peter chases Shaun into the woods, where she manages to knock him unconscious. She leaves him bound and gagged, and uses the intercom to call the house. Eddie tells her they only came for the safe and the $4 million they believe is inside; Isaac was under investigation and Sam had learned that he liquidated his assets. The crew has only 90 minutes from when they cut the phone line before the security company will contact police, so they want...
When Eddie is walking through the house following the motion sensor alerts that the drone was causing, it would have also shown him where she was and where he was at the time. Not just the drone. See more »
The DA called this morning.
Justin, I don't want to do this, please.
No don't, I'm barely hanging on as is.
*He* was the criminal, Shaun, how could you have known? From the moment your mom died, you were on your own. Your father needed someone to blame and he chose you. You survived, you got out, you built a family, a life.
Then why does it feel like I never left?
What he did, what he's done, is not your fault. You don't have to pay for his mistakes.
I just wanna get through the weekend and ...

Man, where do I even begin with this one... Story has been done to death, family moves somewhere, something bad happens to them, one of the family members fights back and gets revenge. But this is a disgrace to films that did it well. First off, this film follows the formula so exact that it so obviously predictable. Every plot point, every (attempted) scare, every moment of attempted intensity, I saw coming and expected. Nothing kept me interested. I nearly walked out of the theater (I even saw several people leave completely) but I figured I paid for this mess. Might as well finish it. The film was also highly pretentious, it presents itself as pure and compelling cinema but its laughable to see that, as the film is so terrible. There are still so many this that made me shake my head.
The acting was stilted and boring, something you would see in a Transformers movie, or Tyler Perry "film". I did not connect with any character whatsoever, which is bad because in these types of films you need to feel for the in danger family, as well as wanting the main character to get sweet revenge, and I felt none of that. The actors were talking furniture as far as I'm concerned. Not to mentiona all the ridiculous cliches that really turned me off and made me shake my head. I thought Truth or Dare was bad, but this was REALLY BAD. I mean, the only reason I didn't give this a one because the camera work wasn't bad. But even the cinematography was average at best.
Just don't see it....
