Film Review - Masquerade


Home invasion movies can be made quickly and cheaply, which seems to be the motivation behind the creation of “Masquerade.” Writer/director Shane Dax Taylor isn’t trying to cook up his own “Panic Room” with the picture, merely working to slap together some low-wattage thrills with what appears to be an unfinished screenplay.

If extended scenes of house exploration and attic hiding are your thing, perhaps there’s something of worth here.
