IFC Midnight repeats Home Invasion thriller movie – Deadline

The film stars visually impaired actor Skyler Davenport alongside Kim Coates, Jessica Parker Kennedy, Pascal Langdale, Joe Pingue, George Tchortov, Laura Vandervoort and Emily Piggford.
Davenport plays the former blind skier Sophie, who takes on a last-minute babysitting job in a remote mansion. But she wakes up in the middle of the night to find the house overrun by a group of thieves looking for a hidden safe. Her only defense is a new app called “See For Me,” which connects her with a volunteer across the country who uses Sophie’s cell phone to view on her behalf. Stubbornly independent, Sophie is reluctant to accept help until she is hooked up with Kelly, an army veteran who spends his days playing first-person shooters.
