First-class one-villain thriller, 4 July 2013
Author: ingemar-4 from Sweden

This was a masterful gem that had escaped me until now. I have a rule of thumb: The fewer villains, the better the story. Why? Because fewer villains means less pointless high body count shootouts, and you must replace it with something else, which tends to be something better. One such example is the first Dirty Harry movie. This is certainly another one.

Much of the movie's quality and believability is carried by the heroine (Julie Sommars) who reacts perfectly to the claustrophobic situation. The villain (Robert Lang) hardly ever speaks in the whole movie, but that only makes him more spooky.

As a bonus, the first victim (Trisha Hocker?) is extraordinary beautiful, and makes a great performance in the few seconds she gets, transitioning from happy to worried to scared just right. A beautiful death scene, with the only flaw that she couldn't hit the head as hard to the stairs as a dying woman is likely to do. A perfect teaser!

Another high was the elevator mind games, where the two try to outwit each other by guessing what the other is doing.

This is great work for a TV show, done by people who knows suspense better than many modern movie makers.
