A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

This one has been out awhile but just hit the video store I go to this week, and I found it to be a very enjoyable, over-the-top violent horror/thriller.
The premise is simple enough:

The Davidsons, a fiftysomething couple, are having their kids and their significant others come home for their thirty-fifth anniversary.  The kids are a rather unlikable, bickering batch of yuppies who obviously can't stand each other.  That night, as the family gathers at the dinner table, the entire group comes under attack from a vicious team of masked assassins armed with crossbows and axes.  One by one, the Robinsons are shot and chopped to death, as the terrified survivors try to figure out who is doing this - and why.

Without a ton of spoilers, I will say that this movie exceeded my expectations, with several amazing plot twists and some impressive gore effects. Plus some gems of dialogue like:

"Why don't you just die already? Don't you know how hard this is for me?"

and then my favorite:

"Where's Felix?"
"I jammed a blender down on his head and killed him."
"That's perfectly understandable."

With shades of THE STRANGERS and FUNNY GAMES, this is an excellent, very watchable film.   And the "final girl" is as tough as any I have ever seen in any movie!

"Carpe diem!" - Seize the day!  "Carpe per diem!" - Seize the daily living allowance! "Carpe carp!" - Seize the fish!
"Carpe Ngo Diem!" - Seize the South Vietnamese Dictator!

Can't really say why, but for some reason I didn't like the twist or the reason why the masked killers attack the family.
The film was alright, though and the survivor-girl was absolutely amazing.
