5/5 Stars

Summary: “A soldier introduces himself to the Peterson family, claiming to be a friend of their son who died in action. After the young man is welcomed into their home, a series of accidental deaths seem to be connected to his presence.”

YESSSSS! I freaking loved this movie.  Everything about it.  Forget reading the rest of this post, go watch it and then come back.  Make sure you leave a comment.  I’ll wait.

I can’t go any further into this post without talking about how hot Dan Steven’s is in this movie.  From his looks to his accent to his personality, it was almost distracting.  Going along with that though, I am obsessed with his character of David.  He’s a perfectly written psychopath who is charming and scary, ughhh.

Then there’s the style of the movie.  It’s got a retro 80’s feel with the synth pop music and something in the way the characters move at times.  I loved it, and for someone who tries to avoid the 80’s like the plague, that says a lot.

The acting is truly on point and the writing is right up there with it.  It had me laughing, and hanging on every moment throughout.  The perfect blend of humor and action.  There aren’t many movies I’d happily watch over again, but this is 100% one of them.  I’d also kill for a sequel.

Watch this movie if you are into action thrillers that aren’t your typical good guy chases down bad guy.

Available on Netflix.
