Location: Well we're living here near Allentown...
Director: Michael Haneke (Caché, Funny Games (1997))

Starring: Naomi Watts, Tim Roth, Brady Corbet, Michael Pitt

Plot Summary: Two psychotic young men take a family hostage in their cabin.

Trailer: http://imdb.com/title/tt0808279/trailers-screenplay-E34965-314
Shall we begin?

Release Date: 14 March 2008 (limited)

Trailer reminds me a bit of American Psycho meets Vacation. Apparently this is a shot-for-shot remake of Haneke's original German film of the same name. Usually, these types of projects fail (see Psycho) and there probably is not much reason for a 10-years-later English update.... but I enjoyed Caché, I love Roth and Watts, so I'm hoping it'll play near me.

At the very least--I've already added the original to my Queue.
