New house, new start for a young couple in the isolated beauty of New Mexico. But a home invasion spoils the idyll.

Architect husband Henry (Logan Marshall-Green – Prometheus, Upgrade) spends weeks in advance of the arrival of Meera, overseeing the building of a luxury home for them both. Henry wants only the best for his wife, a cancer survivor. But when a burglary is followed by three men breaking into the house, all is not what it seems. The local police, however, are focussed on a missing teenager – even though Henry shot and killed all three men. Meera (Freida Pinto – Slumdog Millionaire, Hillbilly Elegy) becomes increasingly suspicious of events unfolding around her.

Stunningly beautiful visuals fail to mask a wholly predictable narrative from director Adam Salky (The College Admissions Scandal, Dare) that is scary movie cliché after scary movie cliché after scary movie cliché. Derivative and more than a little dumb.
