A pretty solid horror-comedy script almost completely botched by McG's usual hackneyed, tone-deaf direction. Lead kid is miscast. Only Weaving and Marino seem to know what kind of movie they're in. At the very least it's marginally more entertaining than the similar Better Watch Out.
How I imagine the producers pitched this to Villeneuve:
VILLENEUVE: I dunno, this seems sort of hopeful and uplifting. I prefer dark stories about serial killers and drug runners. I don't really see why you came to me, to be honest.
PRODUCERS: Did we mention there's a giant spider creature thing?
VILLENEUVE: I'M IN.
(This joke for the thirty people who saw ENEMY).
