About the Movie
A dirty bomb detonates in Los Angeles and a terrified husband decides to seal himself up in his suburban home and await the return of his working wife in first-time director Chris Gorak's tense and topical drama. As the sun rises on another day in Los Angeles, Brad (Rory Cochrane) sends his wife, Lexi (Mary McCormack), off to work with a kiss and a smile. When the media begins reporting on the detonation of a bomb within the city limits and a potentially toxic cloud covers the L.A. basin in ash, Brad enlists the aid of nearby handyman Alvaro (Tony Perez) in making his home as airtight as possible while worriedly awaiting the return of his wife. With roads closed, telephone lines jammed, and reports of multiple explosions pouring in from the media, the panic and isolation of the tragedy begin to take their toll on the horrified community. Though announcements over public airwaves claim that authorities are doing their best to ensure the arrival of help to those in immediate danger, Brad and the rest of the citizens of L.A. soon discover that the explosions are only the beginning of their horrific ordeal.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The acting's pretty good, and the cinematography keeps things lively.
Fresh: There are no zombies to distract from the plausibility of Right at Your Door. And that's what makes this smart, coolly horrifying American indie thriller one of the scariest movies you're likely to see all year.
Rotten: [The film] grabs the viewer by the throat in the first few minutes, but quickly fritters away involvement by concentrating almost exclusively on two characters who are both annoying and boring.
Fresh: Right at Your Door takes a viewer on a harrowing, distinctly uncomfortable journey.
I am getting the heck outta LA...
I live and work in downtown LA...this movie is crazy! I am moving to the middle of Montana and getting the "heck out of Dodge". No matter how real or unreal you may think this movie is...in a real life terror situation, the sh@t is gonna hit the fan and this is going to seem like a walk in the park! Do not go into this film thinking you are going to see the apocalypse in action...you see the human element, you feel the raw emotion, and you sense sheer desperation. Possibly one of the best films of its kind... I truly feel this is one of the most under rated films of the year! Great job by Chris Gorak and all those involved.
Nothing remotely resembling a fact in this stupid move
This movie was so stupid I wanted to duct tape my laptop closed so that none of the stupidity would leak into my house. Any zombie movie that was ever made has more correct and plausible science than this movie. For example: 1) Viruses can't be distributed via a dirty bomb. The explosion would kill a virus. 2) The government was trying to treat what they called a "virus" with antibiotics. 3) Viruses multiply inside a host. They don't multiply more quickly when they are confined to a house.
Good Acting, but horrible ending
Good cinema verite style low-budget flick with decent visual effects and fantastic acting, especially by Mary McCormick, but I'm guessing the script went through it's share of re-writes... Biggest loss was that I couldn't relate to the choices that the characters made, or to the way they related to each other. A much better film in this genre is "Testament" (1983) with Jane Alexander. The ending to this film doesn't make a whole lot of sense, and will leave you scratching your head and asking obvious questions. I get the feeling the filmmakers just wanted to get the film over with. Too bad these great actors had so little to work with.
