May seem sparse, but chock full of suspense.
19 June 2015 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Edge of seat drama! The adults are suitably weird/ deranged, but the two young stars completely steal the show. It may have felt particularly compelling to me since they reminded me of some of the kids that I work with, but at any rate their performances felt totally honest. It's hard to know what to compare it to, but in terms of recent films, it feels cut from the same cloth as movies like Winter's Bone, Joe (the 2013 David Gordon Green film), or Mud (the latter two both also feature an excellent young actor, Tye Sheridan). Looking further back in time, maybe think of films like Stand By Me. Regardless, I would recommend this film even if you think you can't stand child actors...or Kevin Bacon...or cop films...or car chases. An exciting feature, hard to believe they packed so much in under 90 minutes. Not for the faint of heart, but if you like suspense, you'll enjoy the ride.
