Excellent Movie
17 January 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie should be shown as an example to film students on how to deliver a story line. The director and writer did a simply amazing job at delivering the story in a slow and very suspenseful way. I can't say enough about how the story and it's reveal impressed me. The story itself had a lot of excellent twists and turns that really kept me very interested.

The acting was pretty good as well for a low budget thriller. The only criticism I can give this film is the scene transitions. I loved when they were done, but the peephole cam and out of focus transitions took me quite a while to get used to and took me out of the story. That's the only thing I can criticize.

The bad reviews of this film must be by people that want their stories laid out for them on a silver platter within 5 minutes. This one keeps you thinking and you truly don't know what is going on for a good 40 min of the movie. Either that or they couldn't get past the strange camera work.

If you appreciate something that's different and a really good story delivery. This movie is a excellent example.
