Screener Squad: Trespassers

Trespassers Movie Review

It’s a home invasion film, then it’s not. Or is it? It’s hard to tell what kind of movie IFC Midnight’s Trespassers wants to be. One thing is clear: Patience did NOT care for it. Two young couples have rented a lovely desert house for a getaway. Only, they’re not really all that nice (in one case to a ridiculous extent) and it looks like there might be cartel thugs headed their way. Or weirdly inquisitive cops. Or a kinda looney Fairuza Balk. This is a weird structure for a lot of conventional elements and, to be honest, Chris wasn’t totally on its side either but he did have some nice things to say. Check out their head-to-head right here.
