One of those horror movies that plays more to the psychological aspect than your typical film in the genre. The film is mostly about the characters and their motivations - some kind of virus has affected the world and our core family is isolated, and the father (Joel Edgerton - a good choice) trusts no one. But when a young couple, along with their young son, join them, the tension and paranoia grow until you know something is going to snap. Slow moving but ultimately rewarding.
