Movie Reviews

Oh so average.
(3 out of 5 stars)

"this movie has been done like a trillion times but this is a little better than other "break in" movies such as the overrated panic room. The actors are suprisingly decent, no names for the most part but that's not always a bad thing as some people would think.3 men break into this house, only...i forget her name but the teenage girl and her little sister manage to hide out of sight from the robbers, technically they arent even robbers but anyways. They slap around the mom, the dad, and the brother every now and then and eventally kill the brother and the dad...which makes this movie a little more suprising than others who would just give you the same old fairy tale ending. the teenage girl knows she is the only chance to save the rest of her family and plots to save them.this movie is nothing special but atleast it'll keep your intrest from start to finish."

"Ok, I've read some of these reviews...And i've never actually written one of these, but i have to STRONGLY disagree with the negative comments. First off, If you like thriller chillers, this is a MUST see! I can SAFELY say i'm a horror movie fan and I've NEVER seen a movie that has actually scared me or made me check the house every night before bed, NONE! And I can safely also say that i've never even yelled at the screen before, but this is one you WILL enjoy! And what makes it MORE enjoyable...Is that you can watch all the stuff that Smart people WOULD do...Not those people that would panic! It's GREAT! Oh...And the reason she didn't use the phone...Gah! Cause the man ripped it out'ta the wall and she saved her sister first People need to pay more attention to what they watch...Watch it twice people and watch how neat it is! Ok i'm done rambling...This is a MUST SEE!"

"It seems, from reading the reviews that are written about this film, that people either absolutely loved it or out right hated it. I actually found myself in between while watching this film for the first time yesterday. After reading some of the reviews here, I was browsing through my local dvd store and picked it up on a whim. Here's what I thought: The plot of the movie couldn't be more simple. A gang of hoodlums break into a family's house while they are home. They begin to terrorize the family while the two daughters (who the thugs didn't know existed yet) try to escape and get help. That's it. There's no backstory on any of the characters and the movie gets under way without and development at all. Most of the violence in the film is done off screen so we really don't get to see much of it, just hear it. And since there are no special effects, no set changes and pretty much no budget, what we are left with is the story, the characters and the acting. I felt the real winner in this little film was the acting. The girl who layed Loribeth was actually quite good. Coming off as very scared but determined. The main "bad guy" (done in meniacal fashion by the same "bad guy" in "I Know What You Did Last Summer") also was very convincing as the instigator/leader of the group. Most of the supporting cast was acceptable enough. Overall, the movie successfully comes off with a bit of a scared and tense feeling to it and does the job of making you interested and feel sympathy for Loribeth. I felt with a little more effort and maybe a few more bucks in the budget they could have made it into something much better, but it's a reasonable entry into a genre that doesn't get much attention nowadays...."
A Terrifying Horror Movie!!

"This movie is a must see for all horror movie/ thriller fans. It is quite magnificent. It will have you looking around your house when it's over if you watch it alone late at night.
The movie begins quickly after shortly over 2 mins. From that point on, it will have you hooked and it will feel as if you are in the shoes of the main character.
This is more of a 70's style horror film. It brings to mind a few other certifiable horror classics such as Last House On The Left and I Spit On Your Grave. It is, however, unique in it's own way. It takes it's audience on a ride which they can't imagine!!
The movie never was released to movie theatres; it went straight to video release. It definetely deserves more recognition than that.
I highly recommend this movie if horror movies are your thing!! On the other hand, if you prefer special effects ridden movies, then this is not the one for you.
So, lock your doors, draw down the shade, and relax for a wonderful movie that succeeds in scarying the ... out of you!
I prefer these types of horror films much more than a lot of the ... released today. At least this movie can frighten you!!
Stephanie Jones did a magnificent job portraying LoriBeth and Muse Watson was fantastic as the insane killer, Daryl. Both of these actors deserve recognition and this film should not be overlooked because it is very good!
Check it out- at your own risk and be sure to lock the door first!!"
