    San Francisco Chronicle

    Grows more and more incredible leading up to a twist ending worthy of an O. Henry short story that is as appropriate as it is ridiculous. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    The movie has an ironic and unpredictable ending, but it doesn't wash away the sour taste of Brad's behavior. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    The two actors are solid, never overplaying scenes and capturing well that slow realization that their lives are never going to be the same. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    While this is admittedly not lighthearted mainstream fare, the subject matter is interesting and is handled in a manner that offers a compelling and sometimes unsettling 95 minutes. show more

    Kyle Smith New York Post

    As frightening as it intends to be, but not enjoyably so. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    McCormack and Cochrane can't transcend the clichéd, meandering dialogue, so Brad and Lexi's dilemma never feels like anything but a didactic contrivance. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    The film is low budget but puffed with self-importance, and it offers proof that Hollywood filmmakers should probably steer clear of topics that actually matter. show more

    Ultimately a story about the American mindset post-9/11, Right at Your Door is also a much more personal tale, as it forces all of us to consider what we would do if the chips were down. show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    This is frightening stuff, ably helmed (by writer/director Gorak, art director on the nerve janglers Fight Club and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas), viciously acted, and altogether horrific in ways George A. Romero could imagine only through the lens of the darkest sort of fantasy. show more

    There are no zombies to distract from the plausibility of Right at Your Door. And that's what makes this smart, coolly horrifying American indie thriller one of the scariest movies you're likely to see all year — a post-9/11 nightmare about terrorism, panic, and paranoia with real, waking-life implications. show more
