I have to laugh at the one-star review complaining about a movie
I have to laugh at the one-star review complaining about a movie made by male haters. Seriously?
The movie was written by a man. It was directed by another man. Are they self-loathing? Is that what the reviewer is trying to suggest?
Bottom line, this was an above-average teen horror movie, nothing more, nothing less. It gets higher marks for the interesting twists.

Typical Misandry Movie.
Typical Misandry Movie. This movie has a formula that grows more common each year. All male characters are shown in the worst ways. No good males in the movie.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Jennifer Lawrence and Elisabeth Shue star as mother and daughter - Elissa Cassidy and Sarah Cassidy.
Sarah is newly divorced. Elissa's dad isn't even shown.
The main male characters are Ryan Jacobson, Officer Bill Weaver, and Tyler Reynolds.
At the beginning Elissa and Sarah moved into a new house alone. Sarah started a new school, and met new kids.
The other girls were shown as silly and uninteresting, the audience was meant to only care about Sarah and Elissa.
Tyler of course was shown as both a drug user and a stupid pig. Which is how Misandrists want most boys to be seen as.
Ryan was at first shown as a quiet and withdrawn boy. Later it was revealed he had a girl named Carrie-Anne trapped in his basement. That had been the name of his sister, and this girl appeared disturbed and violent. Ryan appeared to be caring for his disturbed Sister.
Elissa was drawn to Ryan quickly. They made a cute pair. Sarah told her that she can't changed him. Sarah's marriage had failed, and she believed her daughter could do no better.
The possibilities were strong at that point. This could have ended with romance and love. That didn't happen.
As it turned out Ryan was insane. The girl wasn't really Carrie-Anne, he just believed she was. He'd abducted her to replace his dead his sister. Elissa eventually learned how damaged and dangerous Ryan was, and was then kidnapped herself.
That demonstrates another Misandrists belief. Ryan tells the audience. "Even if a Male seems nice and safe, he isn't" How his goodness was a farce, and evil is what he really was.
It was later revealed Officer Bill Weaver had been covering for Ryan. Which shows him as corrupt and incompetent. Another Misandrist view of Males.
Eventually Sarah shows up, and they save each other. At the end Sarah and Elissa were leaving. The movie ended with what Misandrists pretend is a happy ending - Women and Girls alone, no Men, no Boys.
I'd had strong hope for this. I'd hoped for a good horror movie. Only to get another movie made by the MALE HATERS. This was quite disappointing.
