Screenwriter-directors Sergio Casci and Veronika Franz aren’t fit to flip burgers at a fast-food chain, based on their pathetic attempt at exploitation horror. With no trace of humor or good will, the filmmakers craft a feel-bad picture with the potential to traumatize its viewers if not bore them into a trance state of misery.
Cruel husband Richard (Richard Armitage) intimidates his ex-wife Laura (Alicia Silverstone) into suicide. Charming. Richard’s next move is to send his equally hateful daughter and son to terrorize his new fiancé Grace (Riley Keough) while the three are sequestered in a remote snowbound lodge. Remarkably, Grace is the only empathetic character in a film that should never have been made. This film’s tagline, “You’re not welcome here,” says it all. Hitchcock is rolling over in his grave.
