The home-invasion genre of horror seems to be growing, with installments such as ‘Don’t Breathe’ showing that there is a lot of meat on the bone for horror films to sink their teeth into, and that includes Julius Berg’s ‘The Owners’, based on a French novel, which hits theaters and VOD on September 4th, courtesy of RLJE Films.
Starring Maisie Williams the film tells the story of an elderly couple that turn the tables on a group of young theives who broke into their home while they were away. Thinking it’s in easy score, Mary (Williams) and her friends never anticipate the horror that is awaiting them when they break into the home.
Nathan (Ian Kelly), Terry (Andrew Ellis), and Gaz (Jake Curran) are the masterminds behind the crime, with Nathan’s girlfriend Mary reluctantly going along. Mary battles with this decision throughout the entire movie, and it’s evident as the story progresses.
Set in the 1990s, the film doesn’t deviate much from what you may have seen in Don’t Breathe, and you’ll likely find yourself drawing a lot of comparisons to that film when watching ‘The Owners’.
Williams is the star of the film, but the real standouts are Rita Tushingham (Ellen Huggins) and Sylvester McCoy (Dr. Huggins) who shine in their cat and mouse game with the intruders, in every single scene they are in.
The film is properly paced moving from a subtle tone to a twisted and horrific road of terror, but dialogue falls a bit flat in helping to move the story along or to accentuate a particular scene. Williams is solid in her role, but the impact that the elderly couple has throughout the film, even in the scenes they are not in, is impressive, and the bedrock of the movie’s overall tone of mysterious, and tense feeling.
