Right at Your Door

(2007) ** 1/2 Unrated
96 min. Roadside Attractions. Director: Chris Gorak. Cast: Mary McCormack, Rory Cochrane, Tony Perez, Scotty Noyd Jr., Jon Huertas.
Right at Your Door has enough material for a great episode of The Twilight Zone; unfortunately, writer-director Chris Gorak has made a 96-minute film with it. Despite this discrepancy, Gorak's film has a genuinely unsettling immediacy in depicting the fallout of a terrorist attack in L.A. Married couple Brad (Rory Cochrane) and Lexi (Mary McCormack) have yet to finish unpacking after moving into their new home when terrorists set off dirty bombs downtown. With Lexi incommunicado at ground zero, Brad must seal up the house to keep out the toxins. It's one moral crisis after another as hysteria grows and trust in authority wanes. Gorak doesn't work hard enough to earn his sketchy ending, but his resourceful indie provokes scares for our times.
