A family intervention goes horrificly awry within the snowy confines of an isolated lake house.

I guess the 4th kind set the bar pretty damn high for an extraterrestrial movie :/
This was not a good movie. The sister was just oo shrill and helpless. PSychiatrist brother came off like a bargain-basement Jason Lee and Veteran brother spent the whole time chewing scenery. It was sad.
immediately, five minutes in, the gentleman carrying the bolt action riflr shoots it like a semi auto rifle.
This is a fun watch. Good setting. GREAT acting by Brian Morvant (Martin). A quick ride that leave's you hanging on the edge of your seat. Quit picking movie's apart & just suspend your belief for the next hour +. The tag line on the cover couldn't be more spot on, if you like the darker creepy episodes of X-Files than waste not another second & hit play on this movie.
I figured the movie was going down hill in the first few minutes. Veteran couldn't properly shoulder a rifle. He was shooting a bolt-action like it was semi-automatic... and pet peeves aside, the trope-filled movie actually managed to impress me through it's progressively-more-disappointing presentation. Acting was obnoxiously over the top. Movie was predictable, especially the would-be jumps that didn't... make... me... jump. I empathized the most with the g-man; spot-on response to the situation. 10/10 would have done the same thing. I give it one skull, because it made mine numb.
