Let’s start off by saying, I enjoy horror films, shitty cheesy horror films, there is nothing that really gets me to jump off my chair or couch, excpet; THE DESENT, that shit got me jumpin’ up the walls. But I realized something, home invasion freaks me out. Loud knocking at the door is where my nerves get jumpin. This film is slow, its well done and its based on true events which really got me scared. But now unfortunatly I can never listen to Joanna Newsom ever again.
During the film, Liv Tyler puts on her vinyl record, and let me tell you, it fucking scary when people are pounding on the doors and windows with her casper ass voice singing. The whole time I watched this movie, I just thought about where the closest Wal-mart was so I could “git meh a gun.” The film does a good job at making masks scary again, and like most horror films, it falls flat at the end and waists time setting up a sequel.
Look out for Stangers 2 and The Church of Latter Day Saints.
2.5 Madex’s out of 5.
They lose points for a weak ending, but it was worth all the door banging and window crashing. Oh and car exploding. Liv did a great job at being Jamie Lee Curtis.
