Surprisingly good...
8 March 2012 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I just watched this on Netflix. It had been in my queue forever and decided to finally watch it. Very enjoyable, even if a bit predictable. We all know when you deal with the Devil, you usually end up getting screwed. They don't call him The Prince of Lies for nothing. But the way this whole story played out was good. The movie relies most on music and good cinematography for its suspense. The main character says very few words, but uses great facial expressions to convey his growing terror. As the film goes on, my curiosity grew trying to figure out how he was going to figure out what to do, and figure out who or what got him into this situation.
