But as the terror unfolds, Olivia discovers that the situation is more complex and diabolical than she initially assumed. Dacre Montgomery, Ed Oxenbould, and Aleksandar Mikic co-star in this horror comedy directed by Chris Peckover.~Garrett Spake
This is a movie I discovered while looking over the new releases in the store. I hadn't heard of it before but checked out some reviews of it before purchasing and it seemed to get some good nods from viewers. I enjoyed the film and it was fun to watch. It has some interesting twist in it and I can say that I was generally interested in seeing how the story would play out. Acting was good and the production values of the film were excellent as well. I would consider it more of a psychological thriller rather than a horror film. I recommend.
People are saying it’s like Home Alone meets the Strangers.. it’s not. It’s Home Alone meets Funny Games. Regardless, it’s a very interesting Christmas movie to have came along in recent years to add to the dark side of Christmas; what should be a joyous occasion turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse. Who will come out of it alive? Stay tuned ;)
I would recommend this to a friend

Good holiday film and crazy good with twists and turns throughout.
This is the best holiday horror film/home invasion film i've seen in a very long time. DO NOT WATCH THE TRAILERS. Don't even read the synopsis. Just watch the movie. I don't want to go into any spoilers here. It's a black comedy, not gory, but disturbing as heck. Great little horror film by a relatively unknown director. The kids acting is superb. I highly recommend this film!
One of the better Christmas themed horror films out there. Starts out like a standard slasher type film and turns into something else. You are better going into this not knowing much about the plot. Was a blind buy for me and I'm happy with my purchase.
