Format:DVD
We lived in Florida during the Cuban missle crisis and instead of ducking and covering under our desks we went out in the hallway and huddled against the wall during our nuclear attack drills. When I was growing up it was pretty much taken for granted that one day the Cold War was going to go nuclear. There were movies from "On the Beach" to "Fail-safe" that played out possible scenarios for the end of the world as we knew it, and even "Star Trek" assumed that World War III was going to be a nuclear war. When "The Day After" came out Carl Sagan was on the special edition of "Nightline" that followed saying that a real nuclear winter would be much worse than what we say in that made for television movie. But now we live in a world where a full out nuclear exchange between two super powers seems extremely remote if not impossible and we would like to believe that a terrorist attack involving nuclear weapons is not inevitable. We have seen such a scenario played out with super Agent Jack Bauer on "24," but that never really involves ordinary people. That is not the case with "Right at Your Door," which plays out against our worst fears at a very basic level.

Brad (Rory Cochrane) and Lexi (Mary McCormack) are living together in Los Angeles and on this fateful morning she goes off to work. The next thing Brad nows there are reports on the radio of a series of blasts in the city.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be Prepared If This Happens January 30, 2008
By T Boz
Format:DVD
Although produced on an independent budget, the filmmakers here have created a fantastic thriller. Set in Los Angeles, the film starts out as every day in our lives does, until that is, an unknown terrorist organization sets off a series of dirty bombs in the downtown area. Recalling the panic that set in on 9/11, our main characters don't know what to do, who to trust, or where to find credible information. What ensues is a truly scary proposition of what might happen, police declare marshall law, hospitals become traps for unwilling victims, and general chaos follows. The performance of Rory Cochrane is really what drives this tale, as he might finally get the recognition he deserves as a dramatic actor, after appearing in such films as Dazed & Confused, and A Scanner Darkly for the past 10 years, as well as CSI: Miami. The supporting cast is excellent as well, although it only takes a few poeple to drive this story, an element of its genius. I won't give away the ending, but it is definitely a twist you don't see coming. Some might not want to see a movie about what might possibly happen in the future, but I think that would be missing the point. We need to ask ourselves what we would do as a society, so we don't end up like the characters in the movie, if it ever does happen.

3.0 out of 5 stars claustrophobic panic September 22, 2009
Format:DVD
It's a kind of post 9/11 terrorist/disaster thing involving a series of dirty bombs set off in Los Angeles and the ensuing toxic fallout from them. The view is constricted to the claustrophobic panic of what one man sees and hears, so the viewer is left in the dark about a lot of things. It's a low-budget, independent type of film, but I was quite riveted by it nonetheless. Well, mostly. While I was dutifully chilled to the bone by the images, predicaments and consequences presented in the film, there were some things that didn't quite jell for me. Still, I give it thumbs up for scaring the bejesus outta me and turning my skin as cold as stone, like all good apocalyptic type stories do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong March 16, 2008
Format:DVD
Ehh, plenty seem to see this movie in some kind of political lighting. It is a mistake. Listen to Gorak speaking of this in special features. He creates a story that focuses on two of main characters and their struggle. Then adds some politics and science around it.
It's a pretty strong independent film. I thought the use of music was good. What I like the most is how they reflect that feeling when something real bad happens, it feels almost unreal.
Also the alternation of faster-paced scenes and quiet ones is done quite nicely.
I like the special features as well. Lotta interview footage with Gorak. The only thing though is that his voice is rather calm- keeps making me feel sleepy.

Having seen the positive reviews and the negative reviews for this movie, I had to enter in my own for the first time because I believe that the reason people are reviewing it negatively is because they were A) expecting a horror movie, which this is not, B) don't seem to understand that in a crisis situation such as the one depicted here, yes, people in reality WOULD be screaming at each other, cursing, not thinking straight, panicking and worse, and that it's hardly overdone in this movie, or C) just mad at the characters for not being smarter or more able to anticipate the nature of the mysterious toxic threat since, well, you know, everyone and their mother these days are apparently experts on biological/chemical/radiologic agents.

If you think you can watch this movie without A, B, or C, then I think you're going to enjoy it, and at the very least, it will make you think about some of the hard questions that emergency personnel must ask when they are responding to a large-scale event . . . and the questions we must ask ourselves as possible victims of such an event.

The characters are a realistic couple (reminds me of Rashida Jones's character, Ann, and her boyfriend from Parks and Recreation!), and although you don't get too much character development before the terrorist attack, in my mind they were very believable, very real, and everyday people with realistic responses to the situations presented in the film. Most of the negative reviews seem to rip on the characters and their reactions to what occurred in the movie as atypical and unbelievable, but I found them to be quite plausible and consistent for people under stress and threat of death, and who were simply trying to survive while being pummeled repeatedly and emotionally by the evolving disaster.

I would have given this a 3 star rating if not for the completely bizarre ending, which made no sense. It did keep my interest throughout the movie.

It was fairly unrealistic that the police were able to react so quickly to keep people from entering the bomb zone. The last part of the movie seemed to focus on the "f" word. Read more
