In one scene, while Ryan and Elissa are kissing in his house, the girl in the basement hears them through a baby monitor, and decides to escape as a result. However, it doesn't make sense for Ryan to have set up the baby monitor so that only the girl in the basement can hear him, while he cannot hear her. It would make more sense for the two parts of the baby monitor to be switched so that he can hear her. See more »

This movie was a pleasant surprise to me because I thought it was going to be more of a "horror" movie...I wouldn't call it that, I'd call it a terrific suspense thriller with good twists here and there. I liked the casting and the storyline. The actors did a good job, esp. the young college student male lead. This is a story that could have actually happened, imo. The music was a big part of the movie, too. Good soundtrack that, while I was aware of it, it did not take away from the scenes but built up my anxiety! It was like another character. Definitely worth seeing for all the right reasons. Very entertaining and kept my attention throughout. All this without "blood & guts" galore - made me think of the old Alfred Hitchcock-type thrillers that depended more on the viewer's anticipation and imagination. Lastly, I thought I had the plot figured out, but I was surprised at how wrong I was. Smiled on my way out of the theater.
