Loved It From Beginning to End
6 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I won't tell you the plot of the movie or even give you a synopsis, that's what Wikipedia is for. What I will do is give you an honest opinion on this film from a guy who is very critical when it comes to suspense or horror. Let me first start out by saying this is the first movie on IMDb that I have ever given a solid 10 to. I haven't reviewed a lot of movies on here so that might not be saying anything to you but trust me when I say this movie deserves an A+. Now I don't want you to think this is a movie with amazing visuals or that the story is the most amazing thing you'll ever see, that is not why I gave it a 10. I gave it a 10 because it meets all the criteria s of a thriller. It has a solid script and cast, creates a tension strewn environment and leaves you anxiously anticipating what's going to happen next. Not to mention it really has no glaring flaws, in my mind. I literally sat there looking at the rating stars wondering what to give it and realized I could find no actual faults. The movie is suspenseful, you'll find yourself biting your nails waiting for whats going to happen next, it has ominous music and scenery that will leave you feeling a little unnerved waiting for the next jump scare (that may or may not come), there is a strong tension established early on that continues to build up until you hope for a lighthearted scene to allow you to ease up. The main character and the few supporting cast really carry the movie delivering excellent portrayals especially the female lead who nailed the performance dead on. I'll admit once I realized what was going on I didn't see how she could escape her situation and Lefevre was so engaging that I felt scared for her. As for the storyline I'm sure it has been done before though I can't remember watching a recent film that has, it honestly felt like watching something entirely original. Besides lets face it there are so many movies in the world that every idea has probably been done at least once its how you take those ideas, spin them, and add something new to it, which I feel the film does. My only real complaint is that they didn't do the original ending which I thought would of been a fitting end to a solid film, don't get me wrong this ending is still good and leaves you wondering a little bit about the mental stability of our protagonist and what her future holds, but that original ending would of just sealed the deal. All in all I'd recommend this to anyone who has an open mind, doesn't mind paying attention to detail (if you miss certain scenes you will be completely lost), and who loves an engaging storyline with well cast characters. 10/10 from me. *P.S. I will say there are some flashbacks and supernatural elements that make no sense whatsoever in the context of the film and they really just add to the tension. There never explained and looking back on them makes me want to lower the rating to a 9 or 8 because of it. I also agree with a fellow reviewer who mentioned reactions to movies are sometimes changed due to over hyping so the fact that I knew little about this film allowed me an open mind that loved what it saw as opposed to a heavily advertised film like Paranormal Activity which in my mind is horrible.
