I don't see why such a fuss has been made of this film, because it's nothing special or unique. It seems that from the start they are trying to build up suspense, but it just gets too boring in the end. There are a few decent moments though and the story is fairly interesting, plus there's a twist ending. The weirdest thing about this film is the mans heavy breathing as he creeps about the house, sort of like strained breathing as if he's pleasuring himself. It's quite horrible to listen to. The moment he appears at the girls window is creepy which gets points from me. Overall there isn't enough payoff from the build up of tension, it's like a firework ready to blast off that whimpers out. The twist ending is rather ridiculous, although a lot of people will think it's cool.
Slasher fans will seek this out purely because it was once on the video nasties list, but be warned: it's very over-hyped.
