Christopher Webster [Celluloid 08.18.11] movie trailer news horror thriller

Joel Schumacher‘s Trespass sees Nicolas Cage, Nicole Kidman and Liana Liberato held hostage in their home by criminals Ben Mendelsohn and Cam Gigandet. I admit it's hasty to peg the film as a Straw Dogs rehash as it's plot is reminiscent of lots of flicks, but it seems to have that same vibe, and apparently it ratchets up the tension until it explodes with an all out, ultra-violent finale.

In a private, wealthy community, priority is placed on security and no exception is made for the Miller family’s estate. Behind their pristine walls and manicured gardens, Kyle, a fast-talking businessman, has entrusted the mansion’s renovation to his stunning wife, Sarah. But between making those big decisions and keeping tabs on their defiant teenage daughter, Sarah often finds herself distracted by a young, handsome worker at their home.

Nothing is what it seems, and it will take a group of cold-blooded criminals led by Elias, who have been planning a vicious home invasion for months, to bring the Miller family together. When they storm the manor, everyone is tangled up in betrayal, deception, temptation and scheming. Kyle, Sarah and Avery will take the ultimate risk to make it out with their lives — and their family — intact.

Trespass sees limited release and VOD on October 14 and sees its premier at TIFF 2011.

Falling Down is still Schumachers best effort, and even that has a cop-out third act. This looks very generic and derivatively trite.
