Not bad. Good atmosphere and acting but nothing special.

Great setup, but doesn't do a whole lot with it. It gets repetitive pretty quickly.

I love this movie! Love it because there’s next to little “blood”, but the suspense is high, and it’s not “torture porn.” It’s just a good “classic” style horror. Felt a bit like a modern “Halloween”. The use of music in this movie is awesome as well. Just a good “where are they?” Movie.

Good atmosphere, and a good performance from Tyler, but crippled by an abysmal script that ultimately brings nothing to the home invasion genre. Watch Haneke's Funny Games instead.
