★★★★ review by Natasha C. on Letterboxd
Very effective horror indeed, it was great!
★★★½ review by Reed Lubin on Letterboxd
woah this is really solid, surprisingly. I was openly irritated by the first scene of the film and was constantly questioning director Adam Mason's decision to include it, only until the film wisely displays the reasoning at the end, which is shockingly effective. I genuinely cared about this family, as well. I liked them and they felt real. The inevitable destruction of this family makes each moment of them living their seemingly peaceful lives together that much more tension-filled. Also, there were barely any jump scares. We see what's happening before the family does, which makes their impending doom sad and frustrating, but all the more scary because we follow the madness step by step.

★★★½ review by Matt Skylar on Letterboxd
A grim found footage thriller that makes you feel dirty after watching it, it truly gives off the feeling that you shouldn't be watching what's going on but at the same time you can't take your eyes off it.
A psycho breaks into a family's house and moves himself in, creeping around while they sleep, terrorising them and all the while they have no idea.
Jeremy Sisto and Kate Ashfield help bring name recognition to these characters, and the fact it's filmed on surveillance footage means we don't immediately associate them with the actors, even Amy Smart pops up for a cameo although it's hard to even make out it's her.
The start is shocking and so is the ending, particularly the death of one of the side characters, which was totally unexpected, not to mention gory!
Definitely worth a watch even if you loathe found footage as much as I do.
★★★½ review by Trace Thurman on Letterboxd
A really creepy film that plays like a mix of "The Poughkeepsie Tapes" and "The Strangers." It lags a bit in the middle, but it has several incredibly tense sequences. Definitely an improvement over the director's last horror effort "The Devil's Chair," which is terrible. The ending leaves a bit to be desired but I'm a sucker for these types of films, so I enjoyed it quite a bit!
