Plot Summary:
"After multiple dirty bombs are detonated, spreading deadly toxic ash across Los Angeles, Brad (Rory Cochrane) inadvertently quarantines his wife, Lexi (Mary McCormack) outside their new home by safely sealing himself inside. With the city under siege and Martial Law in affect, Brad and Lexi struggle to survive with little supply, limited time and no information- all the while separated by thin doors and thinner sheets of plastic. When "help" finally does arrive it appears to be anything but."

This film focuses on young couple Brad and Lexi. Brad is an unemployed musician and Lexi is the breadwinner. Lexi leaves for work in downtown LA one morning and soon after, the City is rocked by a series of explosions. We soon learn that a number of dirty bombs have gone off and that they contained a deadly poison. Brad frantically searches down town for Lexi until the last moment, when he is forced to seal himself inside his house. Not long after he completely seals himself off from the outside, Lexi turns up on the porch screaming for help. Brad must keep himself separate from his wife as she waits outside in the polluted atmosphere.

Right at Your Door starts well thanks to some brilliant opening titles and yet another fine score from tomandandy and is genuinely interesting at first as you try to figure out what has happened and why.

It manages to hold your interest throughout but is essentially a collection of scenes as opposed to a flowing film. This is most likely down to the restrictions writer/director Chris Gorak placed on himself by isolating his lead male from the other characters and the outside world. The panicked radio voices found in similar films works to good effect here, but we canít really follow any of the characters as they leave in search of help, as we are tied to the house and therefore have to wait to hear events recounted to us later.

The filmís poster annoyingly boasts of a twist ending youíll never see coming, which ruins the proceedings, as you canít help thinking about it, which ultimately detracts your attention from the film.

Whilst it does provoke thought and is very topical in these times of war, it sadly pales in comparison to recent indie fare such as Hard Candy.

OVERALL SUMMARY
Right at Your Door is a well made and competent thriller but it wraps things up a little too quickly, which doesnít leave much time for the shock ending to set in until the movie has finished and audience members begin trying to piece together exactly what happened in all the confusion.
