Mike Flanagan directs Kate Siegel, John Gallagher Jr. and Samantha Sloyan in this horror where a lone deaf mute is besieged in her isolated home by a masked killer with a crossbow.
Slick and undemanding cat-and-mouse antics. Not as smart as it thinks it is but with some keen splatter and tense moments. Siegel is a solid, mature final girl – a nice mixture of vulnerable and indomitable. Why doesn’t the killer break one of the glass doors earlier? Well, we have 90 minutes to fill and it is that kinda movie. Some nights there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that kinda movie.
