Doesn’t have enough comedy, thrills, or horror! [+44%]
Who Invited Them has the same premise as most home invasion thrillers, but where it sets itself apart is in their antagonists’ backstory. It takes way too long for the film to get to its foregone conclusion, and by then, any steam for thrills have already vanished. All the characters in the film are grey to the point of not caring for their eventual survival. The characterization of the leads is just bizarre. One moment they’re acting right and the very next moment, they’re making a series of naïve, pointless decisions. It becomes obvious very early on that the antagonists are gas-lighting them, but these rich protagonists act way over their heads, fueled by alcohol and coke.
There is hardly any humor (even of the dark kind) or horror except for a couple of killing scenes. The performances are pretty good across the board (except for one truly idiotic character who is shown to be driving around the neighborhood all night instead of using Google Maps), and that’s probably what keeps the film afloat even when the screenplay has little to offer. Shudder backs some good horror ventures sometimes, but this definitely ain’t on that list.
A very nonoffensive, middle of the road indi thriller. Not great, not terrible… just kind of there.
The story was a bit lazy with a lackluster ending and a foreseeable twist. The main four actors worked well as an ensable and all had positives and negatives as far as their delivery and performance went, but I have to say as a whole the acting landed at a solid mediocre for me. The dad, while not terrible, was the worst for me with some stilted delivery and over all not super convincing. The sister was the best, i quite liked her performance all around.
While it wasn’t the most original thing I’ve ever seen and it was pretty predictable, it wasn’t not entertaining. They had the foundation for a decent concept and the dynamic between the characters was there. I give it a 4.5 rounding up to a 5 and as far as a recommendation goes, I’m indifferent.
