A couple is terrorized by a gang who is hunting their son.
The film flounders under the weight of two underwhelming and prickly protagonists who are as illogical as they are unlikable
A gruelling suspenser told in real time, flecked with a darkly comic sensibility and a smattering of class-war critique.
Its suggestion of a conscienceless underclass will be as a red rag to more conservative souls, but you suspect Williams won't care. He's becoming a real player in the cinema of ordeal.
... A technically proficient and psychologically aware piece of class baiting ...
Taut, tightly-plotted and at times confronting, it'll have you gripping the arm of your seat and double-locking the door.
If Michael Haneke were drafted in to direct an EastEnders Christmas special, it might look like this raw, no-budget, home-invasion nightmare.
Slickly made but ultimately pointless, this film is rescued by skillful direction and excellent actors who invest a fearless authenticity into their roles. It's just a shame that there's nothing very meaningful beneath the surface.
Impressively directed, superbly acted thriller that's both suspenseful and horrifying, though the decision to keep all the violence offscreen won't work for everyone.
Offers little but secondhand platitudes on the dehumanising effects of violence while proving that the generation gap is as wide as ever.
