This thriller ups the ante in tension with an apocalyptic plot in a sci-fi vein that transforms an L.A. family’s Sunday evening into a mad and madder melodrama. A controlling father, three kids, the daughter’s Latino boyfriend, and an unhappy wife squabble in the usual way, until the ominous image of a countdown clock on the TV screen preempts the announcement of a lottery jackpot. The evening sky is on fire with eerie lights; explosions and riots erupt in the streets; and martial law is declared. Inside the house, the McGee family splinters, with every dark secret and hidden hatred bursting to the surface. DCP digital. (BS)
