Pretty good film
22 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Camera angles, filters, lighting, sets, sound, music - everything that makes a film watchable is actually here. The acting is good, believable, not forced. The person(s) that made/directed/scripted this movie actually have talent. Unlike what we currently see churned out from certain film makers.

This film tells a story - it unfolds slowly so you need to be patient and let it build. Sure it is not a blockbuster, however it is not a waste of time, which most "thrillers" or "horror" tend to be for many years.

It almost gives the vibe of a superhero murderer in various parts of dialogue - not that it is bad - but it is quite different. Then, without giving anything away - you almost get a feel that one of the characters could almost be the subconscious of someone speaking to them. It makes you want to know where the director was educated, because he knows what he is doing - and will be interesting to see what he creates in the coming years.
