After returning from a wedding reception, a couple staying in an isolated vacation house receive a knock on the door in the mid-hours of the night. What ensues is a violent invasion by three strangers, their faces hidden behind masks. The couple find themselves in a violent struggle, in which they go beyond what either of them thought capable in order to survive.
Every time I saw the previews I had to look away. Killers freak me out enough, but especially killers in masks. However, I decided to be brave and see the film.
I have to say that it was much better than I ever anticipated it being. In a sea full of remakes and overdone ideas, a good old slasher film was good to see. Especially if you're a horror film fanatic, like myself.
I thought the acting was good. I love Liv Tyler and her counter-part Scott Speedman, although a fairly new actor, did a good job, as well. One might think that showing fear is easy to make real, but it isn't quite.
I enjoyed that the ambiance was more bumps in the night rather than blood and guts, although there is some blood throughout the movie - not enough to make one gag.
Overall I give this a 4/5. I had a couple problems with it, but those are just little things that you can't really understand until you see the film.
Also, it's based on true events.
