Good movie
17 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I originally watched this because I'm a huge Tommy Flanagan fan. And I loved it. Good twists, great acting all the way around, with a good ending. If you're looking for a blood and gore horror movie, this isn't the movie for you, but if you like creepy, psychological thrillers, I can't recommend this enough.

Andrew Howard does a great job of portraying the insomniac man, who is slowly losing his mind due to lack of sleep. He pulls off the character perfectly, all the way through the movie.

Tommy Flanagan is hilarious in this, as the crazy, homeless vet who is trying to help out Thomas Luster. Every time he was on screen he made me laugh.

It starts off at a slow pace, and gradually builds up, reaching the peak about mid-way through, and drags you along for the rest, keeping you on the edge of your seat.
