For a film that is steeped wholly in the psychological thriller genre and totally separate from the original made 30 years prior, I have to say that I was genuinely impressed and caught on the edge of my seat to see what happens in the end. Each of the "stories" within the film are done well, eventually seeping back together. The killing of the two sons is especially satisfying, although the ending may disappoint.
I have to say this film was a rlevation. It is a reimagining as it is a bit different from the original film. Ii actually uses the story of a real home invasion mixedwith elements of the original story. Which makes it even more disturbing and bleak. Rebecca DeMornay gives a performance that is truly a comeback for her. It is a grusome film but more of a thriller then a horror film.
