For the Sake of Vicious (2020)

When overworked nurse Romina (Lora Burke) gets back home from another way too long shift, she learns that a bloody stranger (Nick Smyth) has attacked her landlord (Colin Paradine) in her kitchen. Chris wants to kill him for assaulting his daughter. Coincidentally, Romina just treated said daughter in the hospital. Then, three masked men show up and want to kill everyone.

Co-directors and writers Gabriel Carrer and Reese Eveneshen then change things up by putting the three characters we’ve already met against the three maniac masked bikers and everything gets quite messy and eyes pay the price for all the sin they’ve seen.

Sure, there are plenty of home invasion movies, but this is 80 tight minutes and has some real moments of drama from Lora Burke, who plays Romina. There’s also a great moment in the beginning as she starts taping up the bloody landlord all while trying to calm her son down on the phone, showing not only her mothering instinct, but just how she can control a situation. It’s a skill she’ll need if she wants to survive this night.
