In town for a job interview, a young woman arrives at her Airbnb late at night only to find that it has been mistakenly double-booked and a strange man is already staying there. Against her better judgement, she decides to stay the night anyway, but soon discovers that there is much more to be afraid of in the house than the other guest.

    Very unsatisfying.
    I went into this one with high expectations from other reviews and hype from around the internet. Unfortunately it was all wind.

    The first half of the movie is compelling and atmospheric. The chemistry between the two main characters of this half was top notch, and Skarsgard was believable and just a little creepy.

    However, the second half empties all the tension and atmosphere of the first. It's almost as though the writing and directing team left the room and gave it over to a bloke who walked in from the street.

    Massively. Disappointing.

    Spoilers - in the final act, was I really supposed to believe that 1. AJ heaved Tess over the edge of the water tower one handed?

    2. She fell so slowly that the Mother could catch up and position herself between the ground and Tess?

    3. That both Tess and the Mother were **completely uninjured** by the fall?!?

    Utter tripe
    Seriously, modern horror is rubbish going by this.

    The characters are written awfully, the premise is just waffle and the antagonist is laughable. A waste of nearly 2 hours. How this won an award I don't know.

    I genuinely hoped the leads died. O mean, are people in the States that naive, shallow and nauseating? Thus resulting in film makers drawing on the intellect (or lack there of) and thought processes of those within their society? "We need to get 2 people in a house"

    "Let's have them double book an air bnb because if that happened in the real world, they'd happily share the place for one night"

    It's not even convoluted because would take actual thought. Just outright lazy.

    The scariest thing is, I'd seen high praise for this movie.
