This is a POV film that for once doesn't suck. The lead performances are great, and the relatively low budget does not show at all. There are no faults in the FX, editing, direction or support cast performances.
It's a little slow to start. But there are good reasons for it. Anyone who stops watching is going to regret it.
Had us gripped from beginning to end. We laughed at the funny bits. Wejumped at the scary bits. We wanted to know all the way through how it was going to end.
Probably too intelligent for a lot of audiences. Which could explain the dumb low reviews.
