Directorial debut by Horror Author Eric Shapiro
21 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very intense, creepy character-driven drama. There's a palpable, overriding sense of dread that's quickly established right from the beginning and continues throughout. Unexpectedly strong performances from the lead actors (especially by Ben Siegler and Rhoda Jordan), a sharp ear for dialog, a clever twisting plot structure, and a unique directorial vision driving the whole thing by young prolific horror author Eric Shapiro. Topped off by some truly disturbing revelations along the way, I was really surprised by how much I liked this one. Smart, edgy independent filmmaking at its best. Kudos to Mr. Shapiro and the rest of the creative team behind this one, give it a look
