Starts Well But Goes Nowhere Fast

This movie started off well with some great acting from all concerned; the bad guy was particularly vile and that boded well for a good bloodbath/massacre but it all went downhill rather quickly as nothing much except a bit of a drama out of a crisis unfolded with little to no real horror; more of a comedy with a bit of drama and a smidgin' of horror thrown in for good measure.

Sylvester McCoy makes the film and I have always liked him; even as Doctor Who as he brings a lot more to the table than most actors these days but all of the actors were really spot on but they just had nothing to really work with scriptwise and I don't know about anyone else but I figured out what was possibly behind the safe from the beginning so the mystery was gone for me quite early on.

Disappointed as it looked like this could be a rival to the USA Don't Breathe movie but it has absolutely nothing in common but it does get an average 5 hatchets out of 10 as it will fill an average Friday nights viewing.

Lamesauce rip-off with no payoff

This is only unpredictable if you've never watched anything else of the genre. It rips off Villains, poorly, but tries to have a twist ending. A twist that was as dumb as everything else.

Doesn't help that the third act was cropped to a 4:3 ratio for no discernable reason.

No house alarms but a few surprises

I thought with Williams as the lead the rest of the cast would be low budget level actors but they all do a fine job, particularly McCoy who was Dr Who few years after Tom Baker. It has the usual idiot trope consisting of an utter tool, a mild tool, the coward that gets roped into dumb things by his tool friends, and the girlfriend that didn't want to be there in the first place. Follows a fairly standard formula of a house robbery gone wrong but without being predictable and it ramps up the tension quite well as the violence escalates. Enjoyable thriller overall.
