Synopsis for The Owners
A group of friends think they found the perfect easy score – an empty house with a safe full of cash. But when the elderly couple that lives there comes home early the tables are suddenly turned. As a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues the would-be thieves are left to fight to save themselves from a nightmare they could never have imagined.
As I mentioned in previous articles, this film started out like many other run-of-the-mill thrillers, where a robbery goes horribly bad, but this film stepped it up a notch. In many ways, this film is comparable to 2016’s Don’t Breathe (read our review here). I personally enjoyed it much more though!
This film has great performances, especially by Maisie Williams. She is such a little badass and continues to prove how versatile she is. I loved her character in this film. She’s strong, brave, and willing to do anything it takes to survive.
There’s oodles of blood and gore throughout the film, much more than I thought there would be – so that’s always awesome. Some of the twists weren’t mindblowing and very much expected while others were absolutely insane. I loved the mix and it kept me on my toes! The Owners DVD and Blu-Ray including a special bonus feature of the making of the film, for a closer inside look!
If you love great performances with crazy twists and turns and a delicious amount of blood, The Owners is for you! RLJE Films will release The Owners on DVD for an SRP of $27.97 and Blu-ray for an SRP of $28.96 on October 20!
