Movie Review – Trespassers (2019)

Trespassers. 2019.

Directed by Orson Oblowitz.

Starring Angela Trimbur, Zach Avery, Janel Parrish, Jonathan Howard, Carlo Rota, Fairuza Balk, Sebastian Sozzi, and Joey Abril.

Synopsis:

Two dysfunctional couples rent a modern luxury desert home for the weekend hoping to sort out their messed-up lives. Just as they are about to settle in for a fun night, a neighbour turns up at their front door saying she has car trouble. And that’s when the murderous trouble really starts.

Orson Oblowitz’s Trespassers is an enraged home invasion flick bursting with dysfunction and hatred. Honestly, I’m a fan of the film’s original title Hell Is Where The Home Is – how better to sell such a pointed domestic siege? Trespassers is as aggressive as The Strangers is horrific. Sounds like my kind of knife-to-your-throat thriller, eh? Typically, yes. Except feuding characters do little to justify our sympathy or investment, emphasizing selfishness

Janel Parrish Opens Up About Her Upcoming "Brutal and Gruesome" Film Trespassers

You might be used to seeing Janel Parrish play Mona in Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists and Margot in To All the Boys I've Loved Before, but the 30-year-old actress enters different territory in her new film Trespassers. The horror film, directed by Orson Oblowitz, centers on two couples - Estelle (Parrish) and Victor (Jonathan Howard), as well as Sarah (Angela Trimbur) and Joseph (Zach Avery) - who are experiencing relationship problems and decide to rent an Airbnb in the desert for a temporary getaway. But the arrival of a mysterious woman (Fairuza Balk) leads to death and chaos as the four friends are forced to fight for their lives against home invaders.

For Parrish, the dark thriller was easy to get behind after she read the script. "I thought it was really interesting, and the whole Airbnb aspect of it is so terrifying to me," she said. "It could

Film Review: ‘Trespassers’

  • Variety
A weekend getaway goes sour even before the corpses start accruing in “Trespassers,” a good-looking indie thriller that’s diverting, but could have used another script draft or two. Depicting two quarrelsome if hard-bodied couples who find themselves in deep peril at a rented desert home, Orson Oblowitz’s film has a leisurely enough buildup that room should have been made for more fully developed characters. Fine-tuning the pileup of eventual violent crises wouldn’t have hurt, either. The result falls short of being especially credible, let alone memorable. Still, this is a polished genre exercise that provides a decent night’s home entertainment. IFC Midnight is opening it July 12 on screens in New York and Los Angeles, simultaneous with its launch on demand.

A brief prelude leaves us no doubt that the owners of a handsome modernist manse in the Mohave meet a very bad end at the hands of three masked,

‘Trespassers’ Review: Fear-Mongering Horror for a Fox News Audience

The film opens on an affluent white couple living close enough to the Mexican border for another character to later say, “You can’t open the door to strangers in today’s society.” They’re awoken by three men in masks made to look like Ms-13 gang members, dragged out, and put in the trunk of a car before being shot dead by the side of the road. The Maga allusions are therefore present from the start with pretty Malibu types falling victim to violent “cholos” for what appears to be no other reason besides the bloodlust Fox News’ fear-mongering editorials have told conservative Boomers is coming if they don’t remain vigilant. We eventually discover they’re actually after a photograph, but that’s just an excuse to let these racist stereotypes shine.

I say this because writer Corey Deshon and director Orson Oblowitz never provide a motive beyond terror in Trespassers.

Movie Review – Trespassers (2018)

Trespassers, 2018.

Directed by Orson Oblowitz

Starring Angela Trimbur, Zach Avery, Janel Parrish, Jonathan Howard, Fairuza Balk, Carlo Rota.

Synopsis:

Two couples, each attempting to work through their troubled relationships, rent out a beautiful home in the Mojave desert for a drug and sex fuelled escape from reality. Things quickly turn strange when an unnexpected neigbour drops by asking for help.

A stylish home invasion thriller, Trespassers subverts the expectations of the genre in a gripping way. Even when the plot starts to unravel and the film is left with the bare essentials of blood and neon streaked interiors, the thrill of searching for escape and survival serves the tension very well. Also making use of a well craafted soundtrack of sun soaked pop songs and disturbing effects, the movie brings out an accelerated psycho drama with giallo-esque undertones nicely.

Originally titled Hell Is Where the Home Is, Trespassers sets its

Official Trailer for Orson Oblowitz's Home Invasion Horror 'Trespassers'

"Sometimes you just can't stop what's coming..." IFC Midnight has released an official trailer for an indie horror film titled Trespassers, the latest from filmmaker Orson Oblowitz (The Queen of Hollywood Blvd). The home invasion horror premiered at FrightFest London last year, and also played in Germany's Fantasy Filmfest. Two couples rent a modern luxury desert home for the weekend hoping to sort out their messed-up lives. Just as they are about to settle in, a woman shows up at their door. And that's when the murderous trouble really starts. Because without knowing it, these four friends have just landed slap-bang in the wrong violent place at precisely the wrong bloody time. Starring Angela Trimbur, Zach Avery, Janel Parrish, Jonathan Howard, Fairuza Balk, Carlo Rota, Sebastian Sozzi, and Joey Abril. This seems so much like a been-there, done-that horror rehash pulling from You're Next and everything else we've already seen.

Review: ‘Psychopaths’ is Fantastic-Looking Horror Missing a Purpose

It’s hard to reject a film as having no substance when its narrator apologizes for that very fact. Was its hollowness therefore an intentional commentary on the empty nihilistic void that we call life or was the filmmaker throwing us for a “meta” loop with a tongue-in-cheek laugh that knowingly commends our having sat through it in its entirety nonetheless? In this vein Mickey Keating’s Psychopaths could be profound or worthless. It could be a full-fledged movie that seeks to entertain in its gratuity or a feature length experiment with kill shots and psychedelic filters to be used in subsequent projects containing a bit more meat on their bones. You can like it or hate it or — like me — appreciate the ride despite its lack of reward.

I’m the latter because I must applaud Keating for making me believe something was coming, some purposeful “a-ha” moment transcending

Cinepocalypse 2017 Review: Psychopaths is Mickey Keating’s Most Ambitious Film Yet

  • DailyDead
At the age of just 26 or 27, writer/director Mickey Keating already has five feature films under his belt. These aren’t just homemade backyard projects shot with his buddies for $200, either; these are movies with major stars of the indie horror scene (Graham Skipper, Lauren Ashley Carter, Pat Healy, Larry Fu**ing Fessenden) and getting actual distribution through companies like Glass Eye Pix and IFC Midnight. While his previous films have shown major chops behind the camera, they’ve also all had an air of familiarity about them; Keating is a director who wears his influences proudly, and some of his past work has played more like him riffing on an existing piece than like something borne of his own interests and obsessions.

With his fifth feature, Psychopaths, Keating has really come into his own as a director. It is his most original, most ambitious, most audacious work to date
