Had really low expectations going into this movie, but found myself really sucked into it and I was surprisingly glued to the movie. It has a "The Strangers" feel to it, but the twist ending really caught me off guard, but not in a bad way, I really enjoyed it. I am really surprised to find that this movie really hasn't got much attention yet, but I am sure that will change a word of it starts to spread. Not sure if its worth buying, cause as with most thriller once you find out the surprise ending, you never quite get that same sense of excitement the second time around, but this is definitely worth renting. A great popcorn flick!

Static was a film that I had heard so many people say ,oh there's a huge twist. I can usually catch the twist within a few minutes into a movie.Not this one.I was completely caught off guard in the best of ways.

The acting by Milo Ventimigila and Sarah Shahi was spectacular as the greiving parents of a young son who drowned in a pond on their property..Even though Sara Paxton didn't have a huge role she was effective as well.

This was much more of a psychological drama/thriller than a horror film but there are aspects of terror as the couple are terrorized by men in strange masks who appear when the couple hear static.its a tense game of cat and mouse all the way through.

The last 15 minutes had me going through many emotions and I know I will be thinking of this film long after I write this review.Some people had a problem with the ending I loved it.I have seen films with similar plots but none have effected me quite like this one for some reason .this is a most for my collection.

The story revolves around a young couple whose relationship is strained with the recent death of their son. One night a young woman shows up at their doorstep looking for help after a car accident and claims someone is after her. Shortly after the masked men arrive and the chase begins.
We've seen this formula several times now with people in secluded homes being terrorized by masked assailants but this one's different. It's not as fast paced as The Strangers or even that violent so if you're looking for a bit of action and some gore you might be disappointed with Static. Static is more of a slow burn with more of a focus on the couple's personal problems which at the end you see why that was the focus of the film. In the opening scene you think you know how things are going to turn up but there's a nice twist at the ending which separates it from being just another generic home invasion thriller. Around the 40 minute mark the movie is shot in the dark, which is fine seeing how the power is suppose to have been cut off, but if you're watching this in a well lit room you might have some trouble seeing what's going on. Other than that the acting and the story is good making it an enjoyable movie to watch. Like I said earlier if you've read the description for the movie and think you're in for something like The Strangers you might want to rent it first before you buy it but it's definitely worth a view...*Side Note* at the time I wrote this review the movie is listed as $23 here on Amazon. I purchased my copy at Walmart for $12

Such a surprise ending! I watched it with my daughters and none of us saw the end coming. It was suspenseful yet sad! We watched it several times

I waited to rent this one because of the lower reviews; Don't believe them....don't worry about the nay-sayers on this surprisingly captivating film, it wouldn't let me lose. I promise it'll keep you riveted, yes glued to your screen. A sure fire sign of a good film (to me) is when I check how much of the film is left and discover I'm on the last 1/4 of it. Then, wish it would last longer. There are a few serious jumps and of course, you know from the other reviewers that there is a"twist" coming that you'll not expect. I would say not so much a twist but a class 5 tornado - what a spinner. The actors were all top notch, especially the husband/wife team - very believable. My early present o anyone reading this particular review of min - HO HO HO MERRY CHRISTMAS - "Rent this movie, grab the popcorn and Enjoy!!!!!

This movie is okay at best, glad I paid only a dollar to rent it. As a break-in mystery thriller, the suspenseful soundtrack does most of the legwork through what many thriller/horror fans have seen before many times while the mystery is the only reason to continues watching the movie. What is supposed to be a supernatural shocker twist just comes across as overly sentimental and sappy, though fans of tv shows like Ghost Whisperer and Touched by an Angel might enjoy it more than I did.

I just recently watched static and with all the mixed reviews I didn't know what to expect. Definitely glad I checked this out and in my opinion it was well worth the watch. It centers on a young couple dealing with a death in the family. Late one night they get a knock on the door from a stranger who needs help dealing with a flat tire. They of course let her in the house and hijynx ensues. Good twist at the end and I will definitely pick this one up.

I don't know why this movie is so hard to find. We looked at family video, best buy, and half priced books before we rented it on amazon. The plot twist at the end makes the movie! It has some room for improvement as far as production value, like lighting and time change is a little off at points, but like I said, the plot makes this definitely worth a watch.
