review by
Mike Haberfelner

Abbie Rose (Kasia Szarek) is a social media personality who's successful enough with her makeup tutorials and the like she has been branded an "influencer" - and as such, she can ask for small fortunes from all the companies she supports - and especially makeup producer Nutrocon is willing to pay hundreds of thousands of Dollars for her endorsement. And then one night, four crooks (Janeva Zentz, Shantell Yasmine Abeydeera, Victoria D. Wells, Ian Richard Jones) break into her home, but not to rob her but to force her to make videos ultimately discrediting Nutrocon - and their cause seems just even, as the company, despite a squeaky clean image, is mired in hushed up scandals, from sexual harrassment to ecological crimes. Thing is, the quarted of home invaders aren't exactly the smartest, and aren't a tightly enough knit group to handle all eventualities, so things get a bit out of hand when Abbie's wannabe lover Justin (Mark Valeriano) shows up, who might be totally inept when it comes to saving Abbie, but he's also totally obnboxious. Eventually, things get so out of hand that the quartet's mysterious boss shows up to set things straight, and it's none other than Abbie's timid intern Trendygirl99 (Thea Cantos) - but things seem to have gone too wrong already for even her to save the day ...


As far as thrillers about home invasions/hostage situations to, this movie's definitely more on the funny side of things, cleverly pairing situation comedy with satire, carried by an ensemble cast clearly in on the joke but keeping things grounded all the same. And the direction finds just the right balance between thriller and comedy to keep things tense but still never too far from a chuckle or two, making this a very entertaining piece of cinema.
