Mediocre

Get In (Aka Furie) [2020] ★★

Netflix’s french thriller “Get In” has an intriguing premise: when they return from a vacation, a family discovers that a couple is now occupying their house. They can’t come in, and, worst of all, the authorities won’t help them. This incident causes the family man (who happens to […]
