Drama, Suspense/Thriller
Selma Blair and Josh Close play a well-to-do couple, vacationing with their young son at their secluded second home, who are terrorized by a strange, lower-middle-class family. As torture porn, this Canadian shocker is quite effective--Close (who also wrote the script) and Blair make for sympathetic victims, and first-time director Jeremy Power Regimbal has a knack for slowly escalating the terror--yet the skillful filmmaking hardly justifies the ugly sensationalism. The movie flirts with social commentary whenever the torturers express envy of the other family's comfortable life, but any sort of statement is diluted by their obvious psychosis.
