A family get-together turns deadly when three masked men attack a house in the middle of nowhere. While everyone inside the house is panicking and being picked off one by one, there's one house guest that to all their surprise has self defense training and fights back. First ones to go are the parents, then the offspring until there's only one-or-two left standing to collect the inheritance check.
Similar to "The Strangers," and "The Last House on the Left" this movie doesn't hold back. I wasn't sure what to expect from it personally, but I did enjoy it to an extent. Some of the acting, especially that of the masked intruders were poorly done and the story line isn't authentic by any means, it's quite obvious this movie won't be for everyone but it was a lot better than the recently released The Purge. If you're looking for a straight up filled-with-gore, slasher horror flick, this one is for you. The idea of a strong female protagonist is always pleasing to the audience, although what looks like a low budget film it took three years to come to the big screen, at least here in America.
