Trivia

The entire film was shot in 17 days. Which is a very tight schedule. Actually, the original schedule was 14 days but the train that was booked had doors that wouldn't open at a certain point so an extra half-day was given. See more »

Great story telling
21 May 2014 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

When a movie's described as a thriller, I'm always a little apprehensive, will the movie actually be a horror movie? Well this was a true thriller, a movie that from start to finish made you wonder what was going to happen next.

What makes this a great movie is the power of the stories. The stories are so interesting and vivid you can't wait to hear how they end.

It is so rare to find a movie where you really don't know what the ending is going to be, this movie is not at all predictable. You're constantly trying to put the pieces together, figure out where is this going, why are people doing these things, why is this story important to the plot.

The ending is so wonderful, when everything comes together and you see the big picture it's sort of like an ha ha moment.
