Norval's life has been, to put it lightly, difficult. Currently living home with his mother, the troubled young man is coming off alcohol-related struggles. So when he receives an unexpected letter from his estranged father requesting a visit, Norval catches a bus up to his dad's secluded and scenic waterfront home. Maybe reconnecting with his father will give Norval the emotional fulfillment he's been lacking. Before long, though, he notices something off about his dad, an uneasy feeling triggered by inappropriate comments and a possible over-dependence on booze. Norval quickly realizes that his hope of father/son bonding is doomed. Instead of a family reunion, he finds himself in waking nightmare.Written by
The films that influence the film; and Ant's reasoning for them, are Snowball Express (1972) ("for the cat & mouse twists"), Sexy Beast (2000) ("for the jarring lead antagonist and turns from comedy to violence"), The Servant (1963) ("for the mindgames with those we're inavoidably [sic] linked with"), The Birthday Party (1968) ("for the pitch-black comedy of menace") and Sam Peckinpah's 1971 masterpiece Straw Dogs (1971) ("for the simmering violence awakened in the lead") See more »

The craziness begins almost immediately and moves pretty fast--so you'd better have all your popcorn and drinks in place.
We went home talking about the plot, the characters and the direction--all were on-target (and this...from a tough audience).
Read the synopsis and then jump in with both feet, don't over think it just enjoy.
