★★.5 out of ★★★★★ In the latest installment to the cringe-inducing horror sub-genre, Home Invasion Horror, we get a fair-to-midland entry with a little heart. Think Funny Games, but less terror, suspense, and sadism. Just some light torture and some fun cameos.
★★★★1/2 out of ★★★★★ For those of you curious and wondering about M. Night's latest offering? Fear not (or fear a lot)... Knock at the Cabin is good. REALLY good. A cabin in the woods home invasion with an and of the world apocalypse central theme with undercurrents of LGBT targeting, and the emotional fortitude of what it means to be a family. It's all there, and the plot twist is not a surprise, but a promise, this time.
★★★ out of ★★★★★ 🩸🩸 out of 🩸🩸🩸🩸🩸 A struggling married couple who have been evicted from their home makes a fateful decision to sleep the night in their car on a wooded road. At times thrilling, and at other times head scratching, this film has a great heart but a flawed mind. Convincing performances by Tedra Milan and Michael Reagan make this worth watching.
★★★★ out of ★★★★★
Intensity 🩸🩸 For awkward adult situations and torture
A posh housewarming party fizzles out, due to a host who tries just a little too hard to impress. A couple of glamorous strangers stick around after everyone else clears out and the remainder of the evening becomes far more exciting than the hosts were ready for. Cringe-inducingly funny and immediately accessible, Who Invited Them had its world premiere at the Overlook Film Festival.
