We see you
The film opens by letting us know what is going to happen. Small cameras are going to be hidden at bad angles throughout a home....maybe a 100 of them and then a break in happens and the family must fight for their life. This is either live or delayed streamed to the Internet. We then get introduced to the family with teen daughter Jamie (Bella Thorne) set up as the final girl. She doesn't like her young step-mother while her kid brother thinks she is hot. At 40 minutes into the film, the introductions are over, As expected they fight for their life against an intruder.
Bella Thorne was good in her role in a film that was shot at bad angles for a realistic effect. I am not sure placing a camera in a sink drain was necessary. There are better home break-in films out there. Killer had no character. Oh where oh where is David Hess?
Guide: No F-words, sex, or nudity.
Predictable and slow moving
This is one of the worst wastes of time I've ever experienced. Im not sure why the family didn't just walk out the front door at the beginning. I guess then we wouldn't have movie. I'm also not sure how the killer(s) can make the lights flicker throughout the house...sometimes they work and sometimes not. Oh and that drone somehow has an endless battery life, flying around the entire movie. It takes FOREVER for anything to develop and the characters continuously do stupid stuff that just makes you angry. For example, stun the killer but then don't grab his weapon for protection later...or actually make sure he's dead. Or, on your way trying to sneak out of the house, make sure you stop to grab some gauze that happens to be in the kitchen to wrap up that cut on your arm. Absolutely nothing about this movie is good at all. Avoid at all cost .

I was telling myself not to give up watching
The first word. that comes to mind, is "exhausting". I mean it in a bad way. The way this movie is filmed.. it's annoying and I feel like jumping from a hidden camera to hand-held camera to god-knows-what camera took so much away of this movie. I wasn't even remotely scared once, I was wanted everyone dead so they end the damn film.
Between the jump scares and "come look at this"-cliches I didn't find a lot of originality and neither was that whole "the killers know every move you make beforehand"-bs very believable. It is literally impossible for the killer to know what is going to happen Every Single Time and I feel like a lot of horror movie makers, especially this "kill or be killed"-genre, relies on it.
About the acting I have no massive complaints. Ioan Gruffudd is always believable to me, he's got some talent, and Natalie Martinez handled that "naive, helpless housewife"-part well. Chandler Riggs will always be Carl (CORAL!!) to me and he did what was expected of him. Bella Thorne is new to me, I don't follow Disney stars and don't really give a crap about them. She was okay I guess, could've been worse. At least she doesn't have annoying mannerisms, at least not yet. Leigh Whannell was a fun add, he always cracks me up. I didn't recognize him at first though.
So, I could've spent that 1,5 hours a bit better but luckily I never have to watch this again. Hopefully Whannell and Gruffudd score some better movie roles.
