We gave it a C

Pouring rain. A knock at the door. A stranger asks to use the phone: Car trouble, he explains. What could go wrong? In traditional thriller fashion, everything. Or so Terri (Taraji P. Henson), a wife and mother of two, discovers when she offers aid to an escaped convict (Idris Elba) who enters her home and soon terrorizes her family. Playing the villain is a welcome change for Elba, who was last seen starring in the 2013 biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. ”It’s nice to have a contrast in your career,” he says. ”I’ve got a very loyal following, and I just like to keep them guessing as to what I’m going to do next.”
