This wasn’t so bad. It’d be hard to write about it without spoiling the surprise of it. I will say, I didn’t expect the plot of the movie, and frankly, I had a lot of assumptions about what it was going to be, and all of my assumptions would have probably been more fun than the actual story. I understand that it was meant to be lighthearted, but it was intentionally gross, and turned my stomach a little. I’m not a home invasion // kidnapping kind of guy. I don’t know, the older I get and the more fucked up things around the world seem to get, I’m much less entertained by the idea of an evil person, or someone who snaps and kills people, than I am by monsters. I’m also not a child actor main character kind of guy. Although I liked Ed Oxenbould as the friend! Anyway, not a bad spin on the home invasion storyline, and the ending really tied the whole thing together, but I’m not that into it. This would have been MUCH better as a short film, maybe as part of an anthology.
