What's a good home invasion movie to watch?

"Siege" was really good, as was "Ils". Any others to recommend?

Just a few off the top of my head:

You're Next - great fun
Straw Dogs - the original
Mother's Day - the remake - not as good as the original but Rebecca De Mornay makes a great psycho Hillary Clinton.

The Strangers (very tense and actually frightening)
Funny Games (the original version. Same director did the remake but it's lacking all the same.)

Gotta agree with The Strangers, very creepy. Also, Hostage starring Bruce Willis is okay.

Panic Room starring Jodie Foster is fantastic also.

A couple of different choices......

Kidnapped (2010) A brutal Spanish movie notable for being shot in long takes.

If I Die Before I Wake (1998) Little known but effective film notable for being set in a normal house.

Also kind of enjoyed the Mother's Day remake for trashy fun.

This is a personal favorite of mine. The low budget may be off-putting to some, but I think it's a great little cat-and-mouse flick. I watch it quite frequently due to the short running time.

Might I also suggest the Fox TV miniseries Dean Koontz's Intensity and its remake High Tension, even though the home invasion is just the jumping-off point.

High Tension for sure. The Strangers is great also.

I just realized that Inside (2007) is really a home invasion flick, and quite good.

(I also really enjoyed If I Die Before I Wake, though I had forgotten about it)
