Excellent thriller
5 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Managed to watch a screener of this tense little film this past week. First thing is first, Doug Bradley is scary in everything he is in, including this. Bradley plays Mr. Trent, a gangster type who is looking to make an example out of one of his employees.

Although it runs for less than 15 mins, the tension I felt through every second. The music that accompanies the film is perfect and the director shows that he is very capable and could very well have a promising future.

Keep an eye out on this little astute thriller
