Now this was a film I really enjoyed. I first noticed Rachel Nichols in 'Continuum' and ever since then I watch anything she's in. I only just got around to seeing this and she was brilliant in it. It doesn't hurt that she looks amazing as well. Wes Bentley did really good as the crazed security guard and really applied himself. I actually admire him for beating a drug habit and rejoining the world. This was directed by Franck Khalfoun and written by Alexandre Aja who worked on 'Switchblade Romance' together. Alexandre Aja also wrote 'The Hills Have Eyes' and 'Mirrors' so we know why this story worked so well. This was paced perfectly, had very interesting characters and original plot devices. It's as close to a perfect horror/thriller as you can get nowadays because there are simply too many being released and most don't have even close to the quality of this.
