Home invasion movies freak me out so I'm really looking forward to this. I liked Home Sick by Adam Wingard but thought he had one of the worst segments in V/H/S although that's more due to the writing.

Hope it brings something new to the table tho cause it looks just like The Strangers, Them etc.

There's nothing in the trailer that indicates it will be unlike every other home invasion movie made prior. The writers hopefully have the chops to make this far more interesting than what I think is a kind of a lame sub-genre. Like for example: Are our masked villains positive that no one in the group has a concealed weapon? Are the villains sure that none of the victims have received combat training? The fact that these foes wear ridiculous masks makes me a little apprehensive, as blocking your "early warning" peripheral vision gives you a major disadvantage in combat, particularly the type in which they are engaging. Ah fuck it, nobody cares about attention to detail these days anyhow. Like I said, they better surprise me...

That shouldn't matter. If I was to participate in a home invasion, whether the victims have combat training or not wouldn't even be in my list of concerns. I also feel like if I was stalking a group of people for days I would know if they seemed dangerous or not.

There's no way to know for sure, and in a movie like this or in any real life situation similar to this that's just the risk you take as a criminal.

There's more home invasion movies that I didn't enjoy than there are ones I do enjoy. This one has me intrigued though. There's been some really bad home invasion horror movies released in the past five or so years.

The positive buzz and trailer have me sold too. I'm probably going to try to stay away from any news/reactions on this film till it's released. Sucks we gotta wait till August for it.

That bothers me in this sub genre. These films usually take liberties that sometimes are just too unbelievable and can place a dent in the viewing experience. I've trained myself to ignore these details if the film is solid in other areas but it's tough. This one looks like it may have some awesome atmosphere which may be my favorite thing in a horror film. Fingers crossed this one turns out to be solid!

Well when I see a horror film, realism isn't something I hope for.

If you can suspend your disbelief for something like Alien or ANOES, why is it so hard to do it for this type of film? It just seems overly critical to judge a movie off of that.

No, it's not overly critical because in the case of Alien or ANOES, it's a fantasy film and the creators can sort of bend the rules. Home invasion movies are presented in a way that suggests that this is something that can really happen. But it's paradoxical because the film usually relies on an ever increasing series of coincidences to move the story forward: The home is isolated, the power is out, the cellphone falls in the toilet, the responding cop gets waylaid, the victims are unarmed and completely incompetent in defending themselves, etc.

The more coincidences one places in their script, the more it begins to resemble slap stick comedy than drama. As Outpost suggested, it does slowly begin to eat away at suspension of disbelief.

You have to be a real good writer when creating a supposed real world scenario without having to keep bending reality to make it work.
