R | | Drama, Horror, Mystery
A couple's relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.
Kristen Wiig was the last actor cast in the film and was selected at the last minute for the role of the herald, after she finally made time in her schedule to appear in another film. She accepted out of a desire to work with Darren Aronofsky.
After one of the sons is murdered, the Mother fails to call 911. All she does is clean up the crime scene and dispose of the evidence, making her complicit in the crime, something her character does not demonstrate in any other sense throughout the movie. Although the household is descending into bedlam, and her lack of control became increasingly uncomfortable for the viewer, the fact she did not protest the murder felt ill placed within the broader context of the film.
SPOILER: The H in Him (Javier Bardem) is the sole capital letter in any of the film's credits.
