Product Overview

After multiple dirty bombs are detonated, spreading deadly toxic ash across Los Angeles, Brad (Rory Cochrane) inadvertently quarantines his wife, Lexi (Mary McCormack), outside their new home by safely sealing himself inside. With the city under siege and Martial Law in effect, Brad and Lexi struggle to survive with little supply, limited time and no information - all the while separated by thin doors and thinner sheets of plastic. When "help" finally does arrive, it appears to be anything but.

Review The apocalyptic scenario is one that nearly everyone born after 1945 has had to consider at one time or another. From the '50s through the '80s, it was the potential of a nuclear holocaust. Now, it's terrorism. Living with the ongoing possibility has a way of desensitizing a person so that when something happens, as it did on September 11, 2001, it's a shock to the system. Like any subject matter spawned in the nightmares of reality, this material offers fertile ground for filmmakers. Some come to exploit while others come to explore. Right at Your Door, the directorial debut of Chris Gorak, falls into the latter category. Its strength is that it feels real. It follows in the footsteps of two '80s movies about nuclear devastation: the overhyped The Day After and the underrated Testament...The movie loses momentum during its final third, which is understandable considering the limitations of the setting and the restrictions inherent in a movie that primarily features two characters. The ending is arguably a little too sensationalistic, but it certainly drives home a point about the ineffectiveness of governmental action during a crisis. (The movie was made when echoes of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina were still in the air.) Then again, this is the kind of story for which almost any conclusion could be faulted in one way or another.

Review Right at Your Door is written and directed by first-timer Chris Gorak, who comes from the world of production design and art direction (interestingly, one of his assignments was for Catherine Hardwicke, another production designer turned director), and his training in set design and locations permeates his debut feature from beginning to end. A disturbing, suspenseful thriller that barely leaves a handful of rooms for most of its running time, Right at Your Door brilliantly uses its environment to trap and define its characters...the film's resolution, though harrowing, reads more like a Twilight Zone-esque trick ending than the plausible extension of everything that has come before. Yet Cochrane and McCormack are incapable of hitting false notes; they imbue even the more contrived moments in the script with a sense of reality that generates numerous heartbreaking, scary, and occasionally even darkly funny moments. And Gorak helps them out with imagery that evokes not only our memories of 9/11, but of Hurricane Katrina and other disasters. Like De Palma's Blow Out, which incorporated aspects of Chappaquiddick and Watergate to give resonance to a fictional horror tale, Right at Your Door crosses our real-life national nightmares with a cleverly constructed thriller to create a movie that is smart, impeccably acted, and extremely unsettling.

Chuck Wilson, The Village Voice Grounded hard by some terrific smoking-skyline special effects and by Cochrane and McCormack's intensity.
Entertainment Weekly One of the scarist movies you're likely to see all year.
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly ...a post-9/11 nightmare about terrorism, panic, and paranoia with real, waking-life implications.
Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle ...viciously acted, and altogether horrific in ways George A. Romero could imagine only through the lens of the darkest sort of fantasy.
The New York Times A twist worth waiting for!
