I was quite impressed by the production values of this film, having seen an earlier production (Cycle of Fear) from the same creator which was abysmal in writing, acting, and production. This time, the writing was mostly good (see below), the acting was fine, and the filmwork was to a high standard, including effects. The only noticeable limitation was exterior locations.
The scripting was very good, with lots of suspense throughout, although the story gets a bit weak in the final reel. I think this could have been wrapped up better, as the characters who show up at the end are a bit contradictory in their supposed motivations. There are also some unresolved questions about the protagonist's troubled relationship with her father - several possibilities are hinted at, without it ever being clear which was actually the case.
Nevertheless, the rest of the rest of the film makes it worth watching, so see if this comes to a screening near you.
