After her estranged father is killed in a hit and run, Shaun goes to his vacation home in Wisconson to settle his estate by selling his home. She has not spoken to him in years but she knows he is not perfect. Her two children, Jasmine and Glover travel with her but her husband will be joining the next day. As the three walk around, they see a few things out of place. A broken picture, cut wires, malfunctioning alarm system but ignore it because no one has been in the home for months. Also, they notice the vacation home is now a fortress with a sophisticated alarm system, retractable window shades, and cameras everywhere. While Glover is playing with a drone he is grabbed. When Jasmine goes to find him, she is grabbed. While Shaun attempts to order pizza in the driveway, she is attacked but fights back. After the fight, she sees her children locked inside the fortress at the mercy of strangers. She must find out what they want to save her children.
This movie shocks from beginning to end. You will see Shaun risk life and limb, like most mothers, to save her children. However, she doesn’t make typical movie mistakes. Like wearing heels in the forest or calling for her kids in the dark. She is smart and uses her knowledge of the house to her advantage. The irony is the house meant to keep them safe is the same house that becomes a prison. So how far would you go for your children?
I give it 4 out of 5 stars
I am your mother. Is there a difference? – Shaun
So what does that make you, slightly paranoid – Glover
I’m your big sister. It’s my job to worry about you. Not your job to worry about me – Jasmine
Fear, I can manage. Desperation is a whole other thing – Eddie
