Then came a 4am knock on the door and a haunting voice. The confrontation with the terror by the masked strangers invader forces the couple to go far beyond what they thought themselves capable of if they hope to survive.

    Our Verdict:

    Green Tea says:

    Holy Lord, this is a scary thriller movie. Based on a true event or rather several events, this is a spooky as it sounds, but the good sweet thing stops there. Where is the plot? Where is the storyline? The movie itself doesn't have a stable and concrete story path to go through, only relying on the events that make the horror works. I would say, easily forgettable movie but still only the impact of the thrill is there. The movie is anchored by Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman, which had a rather good on screen chemistry - works just well. The masked invaders are just enjoying the fun to kill - nothing much about them. You expect more from them but they ain't coming as much gore as you predict. Come on, I need some time out for this movie especially the final scene - what the hell was that? Another movie with abrupt ending. Anyway, it just like the movie Vacancy last year, isn't it? The one stars Luke Wilson and Kate Beckinsale about the hotel room been terrorized and they were been recorded on CCTV for the owner's gore entertainment.

    3. hmm... based on true events? oh well i don't find this as horror film or even thriller.... the synopsis itself reveals that it won't and didn't have a strong storyline.
