Our take

Adding a further fascinating layer to his breakthrough Funny Games, Michael Haneke revived the psychological thriller a decade after its release, transplanting and translating its action to the USA. No mere cash-in, this equally incendiary shot-for-shot remake is just as genius as its predecessor.
