‘Welcome Home’ is a 2018 thriller starring Emily Ratajkowski (Gone Girl), Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Riccardo Scamarcio (John Wick: Chapter 2), and Francesco Acquaroli (Fargo). A couple (Ratajkowski, Paul) whose relationship is on the rocks spend a week in the Italian Countryside in an attempt to fix their relationship. They won’t be left alone by the overfriendly neighbor, and they soon find out his sinister plans.
This movie is basically ‘The Intruder’ with Dennis Quaid mixed with ’13 Cameras’. Instead of the overly nice creepy seller, you have the overly nice creepy neighbor. Then like ’13 Cameras’ you have cameras set up all over the house, with the creepy guy sitting there watching the couple. The best way to describe this movie is, it’s the perfect mashup of those two. I haven’t heard of ‘Welcome Home’, but it just came to Netflix, and I like Aaron Paul, so I figured I would watch it. Honestly it’s a pretty solid movie. It doesn’t have as many twists and turns as I would prefer in a thriller and it was a little predictable, but the acting is really good. Scamarcio plays the creeper part perfect. He reminds me a lot of Javier Bardem’s character in ‘No Country for Old Men’. I was surprised how well Ratajkowski does, she is mostly a model, not a whole lot under her belt as far as acting, but she plays a good part. Overall I give it a 7.5/10.
