We gave it a B+

A married couple (Tim Roth and Naomi Watts) and their young son (Devon Gearhart) are the victims of a home invasion by two blond sociopaths. The psychos bet the family that they cannot survive the pair’s sadistic games until the next morning. Those who saw Haneke’s 1997 German-language original will know what happens. Those who didn’t…ouch. Prepare to be implicated in a wickedly self-aware exploration of cinematic sadism. (March 14)
