This movie is everything I want out of a home invasion movie.  It has violence, a lot of victims, and an actually competent cast of characters.  Well, one of them is at least.

You get believable weird family dynamics too.  From the brothers Crispian and Drake arguing about who's the better man to the  daughter Aimee saying "You never give me credit for anything (spoiler)", you get the idea that none of these people  really care about each other.

There's a couple good jumps to the movie, but more importantly the death moments are very intense.  The whole thing brings a light in the dark feeling with how one of the characters really helps rally the family and get to that happy ending we all know comes from every horror movie.

No joke though, it's a pretty brutal movie, don't watch if you aren't ready for some blood.
