Well worth your time!!
7 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, I just finished watching this and I must say I'll be looking forward to seeing Scott Leet in the future. What a performance! He alone made this movie worth watching. And no, I'm not a friend of his, but I certainly am a fan now. His take on the main character was just pure genius. As a fan of horror-thrillers, he has my vote for "best performance of a psychopath" ever. I thought he was as good as Jack Nicholsen was in The shining. Yeah, that friggin' good!!! Watch for yourself and pay attention to the many expressions and micro-expressions he pulls off throughout the entire flick.

Those who rated this a "1" should be ashamed. If you don't like a movie give it a 3 or 4. To give a "1" means you don't fully understand the "1-10 scale". Unfortunately, a great many people don't, which is why a lot of movies get passed on without a second thought.

I hope many of you don't pass on this because of the low rating like I almost did. You will have really missed out.
