Plot – Big Spoilers:
A gang of performance artists called The Crows led by an elderly lady get pissed off with a buxom woman who ignores them. They then proceed to add this film into the Home Invasion genre.
You spend most of your time here watching the lead victim, Mary, pottering about her home, waiting for shit to happen to her. Maybe it’s the expectation you have, considering this is from the maker of Adam Chaplin, but it doesn’t feel too boring or disappointing, because the smattering of gore is pretty good. It also helps that Mary has a few good things going about her. When she needs to retrieve a gun from her car parked outside, she first slips into a short dress and heels, before stepping outside. She’s also exceedingly stupid when she has to deal with mechanical objects – watching her locate a hammer in a basin or having a crack at a box that might be caging her dog, keep the ticking minutes interesting.
