This home-invasion horror runs out of steam fairly quickly...

Open House review

Nice marketing savvy, shame about the film.

Andrew Paquin casts True Blood love-birds Anna (his sister) and Stephen Moyer in his hokey home-invasion horror, but they barely survive five minutes and the half-cooked script offers few other draws.

True, Brian Geraghty and Tricia Helfer relish playing partners who slaughter the owners of a house for sale and move in; she then collects thrill kills while he keeps Rachel Blanchard secretly imprisoned.

But the plot thins out fast and the killers – him childlike, her a saucy sadist – are written as psycho-sexual clichés.

Nice interiors, but you could watch House Doctor for those.
