very very very bad. I hope they are not making a part 2 because it will just be a waste of money and i would not bother even watching it if it come onto free to air tv

I was left with lots of questions. Who were these masked intruders? What was their purpose. When the two boys found the couple on the floor at the end of the movie and the girl screamed - Did she live? Is this movie actually based on a true story? Other that scary moments from time to time, there was no plot and no resolution at the end.

It's all efficiently nerve-jangling, with Tyler and Speedman credibly registering every hue of panic. Still, after such a long, creepy, cannily restrained buildup, it must be said the resolution is rather flat, a full-circle postscript rote. Full Review

Bertino does an excellent job building dread, especially during the first half of the movie. Every silence, pause and sudden noise startles - and the results, frankly, are more frightening than the graphic torture scenes in movies like "Hostel" and "Saw." Full Review
James Berardinelli
This is one of those rare horror movies that concentrates on suspense and terror rather than on gore and a high body count. Full Review
Jeannette Catsoulis
The New York Times
This is no splatter movie: spare, suspenseful and brilliantly invested in silence, Bryan Bertino's debut feature unfolds in a slow crescendo of intimidation. Full Review
Michael Rechtshaffen
The Hollywood Reporter
A spare, creepily atmospheric psychological thriller with a death grip on the psychological aspect. Full Review
