“I hadnu0026#39;t heard of this movie until I was scrolling through an online site, so I thought Iu0026#39;d kill a bit of lockdown time and watch it.nStarts with a scene on a bridge, a guy in his underwear struggling to get away from someone. He falls and is killed by an unknown assailant.nCut to the Hughes family travelling to their vacation cottage, clearly struggling after the death of their young daughter. Quick stop at a gas station and the attendant tells them theyu0026#39;re early, the usual families arenu0026#39;t due for a couple of weeks but one or two have arrived.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eEarly next morning Mark Hughes hears a noise and goes outside to find a family outside his house, they explain they are leaving him some firewood. Mark is initially rude to them, but softens and caves in to their suggestion they call back later for a meal.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhat then ensues is pretty predictable, the pushy Father, the timid – mentally challenged even – wife and the creepy son, try to find out about the loves of the Hughes. As the evening progresses tempers become frayed and the Hughes ask their guests to leave. Following that weu0026#39;re talking a straight home invasion movie.nThere is quite a bit of brutality, a pretty gross forced sex scene (because everyone is watching) and a couple of revelations.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s very predictable, and you kind of wonder why the Hughes would even invite these awful people into their home.nThe Hughesu0026#39; son is a drippy, teddy bear clutching nine year old who clearly has issues, whilst rhe son of the other family is quite possibly the oddest, creepiest bad actor ever.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI enjoyed it, probably wouldnu0026#39;t hurry to watch it again but itu0026#39;s a good movie. Selma Blair and James Du0026#39;Arcy outact everyone else on the screen.”
