Stop us if you've heard this one before: a family of cityslickers relocate to a dream house in the country... Only to be terrorised by a redneck nutjob.
That Mike Figgis should down experimental tools to knock out such an identikit thriller is puzzling. That he should fail to construct a single genuine scare is disastrous, rendering the project untenable. The performances don't help either, Dennis Quaid and Sharon Stone (Mom and Pop) blending into the placid scenery while Stephen Dorff (spacehopper-eyed psycho) stands out like a splash of red graffiti. Not terrible, just disconcertingly mediocre.
