What breaks my heart when movies like this come out is that most people are so limited by their own movie tastes they can't appreciate a film that does great things in very different categories. As a Blumhouse movie, it stands out for the quality thriller that it is. Nothing mind blowing, but solid twists and drama along with excellent acting to support it. Additionally though, this movie carries profound messages about the human condition and the effects our decisions have on each other. For anyone interested in the nature of humanity, how we hurt and damage each other, this movie certainly stands out. On a rewatch it may get bumped up to a 9, but I'm always cautious about my hype. Probably gonna have to buy this one.

Fantastic thriller. It sure will make bullies think twice before hurting someone. It should be taught at schools. Doesn’t matter how young and dumb you are, your actions will always have consequences.

Appears to be another slasher-thriller at a glance, but ends up as completely the opposite. Without trying to spoil the film too much, it plays with the usual thriller tropes you usually see - even with one jumpscare as a nod - but it subverts our expectation middle way. It slowly turns into something completely different, and most importantly it feels humane: not just from mere sound and music as usually horror/thriller does it, but from the awkward conversation, the silent pauses, the worried expression. The three actors' performance make this film. The ending remains ambiguous as the final reveal is lifted up from its curtain. Some noted that it leaves out the morale question, the sterile intake that puts our protagonist Robyn as not much more than a dressing, but I suppose it seems to give a slight nod to revenge trope, perhaps similar to what _Oldboy_ does: is a revenge, after all, worth the trouble and leave us as a better person?

I'm a huge sucker for Jason Bateman, I'll watch things purely because he's in them. That's what happened here for this Joel Edgerton written and directed thriller about bad things happening to bad people. It's hard to discuss this movie without spoilers but basically you go in expected one thing, and getting it, and slowly the movie gradually turns into something else. Bateman is outstanding in this, playing a nasty character that I've never seen from him before, and his wife, played by Robyn Callem, and antagonist Gordo, played by Edgerton, do a great job of ratcheting up the tension through-out the movie until the very end, when everything explodes. If I had one complain its that I'm not sure I like that the movie ended on SUCH an open ended note, with a lot of horrible questions going unanswered.

The trailer suggests something very generic, the film itself is anything but. There is a real sense of unease that is gradually built in the first half of the film, but it is all done through character interaction rather than attempts to scare, with awkward conversations and hints of unspoken histor More

[6.7/10] One of my favorite reads of *Arrested Development* is that despite his more decent demeanor, Michael Bluth is just as much of a self-centered jerk as the rest of his family; he’s just better at hiding it. It doesn't hold up completely. Michael cares about his son and shows some genuin More

Traditionally, horror films and psychological thrillers follow a predictable path in their themes of dot-to-dot suspense. Rarely does a suspense piece deviate away from the formulaic blueprint that make these types of flicks the familiar frightfests they are in conception. However, the crafty Joel E More

> In a rage for revenge, the GIFTS can be our handy weapon.

Firstly, it was well written by Joel Edgerton as well debuted as a director with it. That is only because of comparing with other over hyped crappy mystery-thrillers. Frankly, to me it was a decent flick that I enjoyed watching. Flaws, l More
