I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by this film. The whole premise seemed done and then done again many times, but they seem to have pulled this one off with some uniqueness. While I thought I would be able to predict the script through the entire movie, I must say that by halfway through I didn't know where this was going and by the end of the movie I was a bit disturbed like I hadn't been in awhile from watching a movie. Filming, direction and most of the acting was very well done. I might criticize some of the acting and scripting regarding the boyfriend, but it's easily overlooked since the rest of it is much better. All in all, I think anyone that enjoys a suspenseful movie will find this worthwhile.
