MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME,
This review is from: Cherry Tree Lane [DVD] (DVD)
Michael (Tom Butcher) and Christine (Rachael Blake) have a strained relationship. He doesn't trust her after she confessed to an indiscretion. They also have an issue with their son Sebastien (Tom Kane) who have been hanging out with the wrong sort. Their conversation is low, so I needed to crank up the volume to hear what they were saying. What was with the still camera in the opening bedroom shot?
Soon some of Sebastien's mates break in looking for him in a bad sort of way. This becomes a home break-in film as our gang helps themselves to some cookies, DVDs, and the wife. Things get weird when the gang's girlfriends show up, one of which is dragging along her innocent pre-teen brother.
The break-in formula runs its course and rather quickly in this 77 minute film.
The acting was alright, the characters needed a little more developing. The home break-in terror was light compared to others in this genre. You might want to go watch "Mother's Day" or "Last House on the Left" again before seeing this one. Not really worth renting.
Parental Guide: F-bomb, off screen rape, discreet nudity.

"Sebastien's mates" - How in GOD'S name could they be his "mates" if they broke into his house, attacked & tied up his family then waited for him to return home and then savagely beat him?

They are the people he hangs out with.
