My Top Fifteen Home Invasion Movies


“There is nothing more important than a good, safe, secure home.”

Home invasion movies have always affected me a little bit more than any other, it's a sub-genre that still has the potential to terrify me in so many ways and that's saying something.

So here it is, my list of my top fifteen home invasion movies (the list is not in a favouritism order):
