         Within the home invasion sub-genre, it has become something of a trope to use a victim with an impairment. This was established early on with the blind protagonists in Wait Until Dark (1967) and See No Evil (1971) and has continued with the recent wave of home invasion films including Mischief Night (2013) and Blind (2019). Mike Flanagan also provided a variation on the trope with the hearing-impaired victim of Hush (2016). Often these impairments are a new reality for the protagonist, and the efforts to evade and fight back against the intruders of the home invasion narrative provide opportunity for renewed confidence. Canadian home invasion thriller See For Me predictably follows this formula, though it does so with a few new twists.

        Based on Colin Niel’s novel of the same name, Only the Animals (Seules les bĂȘtes) is a simple tale, despite taking place across several countries with various seemingly unrelated characters. Director Dominik Moll keeps the audience in the dark regarding the connection the various storylines have with each other, revealing them only after the tension has been built up. Each piece of the puzzle eventually falls into place in a way that feel inevitable, despite the initial disorienting introduction to each moving part of the narrative.
