In the hotel lobby, Jay uses a chip and pin payment for their room. It is obvious that the Visa card being used is put in the wrong way round. The chip is directly below the Visa logo in the top left hand corner of the card which can easily be seen whilst in the card reader. See more »

Quotes

Jay: You're giving me indigestion.
Justin: Oh, sorry.
Jay: Apology accepted.
Justin: Sometimes God's love can be hard to swallow.
Jay: Not as hard as a dinner plate.
Justin: God loves you.
Jay: Does he? Well, tell God from me if you're the kind of people he hangs about with, stay out of my way. No more guitar, mate. Not in restaurants. There is a time and a place. And your time and place is in a very isolated location, where no-one is likely to be for about a fucking hundred years. Ok? Because Jimmy Hendrix you ain't.

Well crafted, claustrophobic & genuinely scary.
6 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I felt compelled to write this review after reading the previous review on here. I fail to see how anyone with a true love for film, especially for the horror genre could possibly say this had a "ham fisted" approach. The largely improvised dialogue is such a pleasure to behold and lends the film an authentic stiflingly creepy mood. Much has been said about the director successfully cross pollinating two genres seamlessly and I concur that this is the effect the film has. Not only will fans of the horror genre find in this film a true cult classic, but it's bleak and improvised nature is very reminiscent of a Ken Loach-esque approach. The pace of the film escalates tirelessly throughout and towards the end of the film certain scenes are so claustrophobic I can honestly say this is the first "horror" film to have genuinely left me feeling unsettled & scared in many years. This film leaves the viewer, shocked and breathless by it's end, and I for one recommend it highly! Hopefully this will have redressed the balance for this film here after the stunning ignorance of the last simple minded review.
