I had high hopes for this, given that it was made by the guy that did Oculus, which was great. So, basically, this deaf chick lives by herself somewhere isolated and is stalked by some doofus with a crossbow. Decent setup, but it’s made really frustrating by the all-too-common problem of really bad decision-making. Even the stalker dude remarks on the chick’s bad judgement, which was kind of funny. Anyways, if you’re gonna do some kind of “strong woman saves herself from the baddie” thing, maybe not make your heroine a total dipshit? Also, this movie would have been about 20 minutes long if either of them had bothered to get an actual gun. Lots of people heaped praise on this, but I just don’t see it. “Don’t Breathe” is a much better example of this type of “home invasion with disabilities” sub-genre. Also, no boobs, which would have totally elevated the material.
