An excellent new take on the ground hog day premise
24 September 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I wasn't expecting much but was surprised at how much I enjoyed this film. Its based in the future but that doesn't impact too much on the film. The earth is dying, the air toxic. Mega corporations rule and of course you have the obligatory resistance. But this is more back ground information you pick up as the film progresses and just supplies character motivation.

The basic premise is a couple keep reliving the same home invasion over and over, and try to use memories of the previous attempts to their advantage. Only there develops an excellent twist. Too say more on this point would ruin the film.

Each day starts with them waking up in bed then being taken captive. Each scenario ends when they are killed. For the most part the whole film takes place in one cramped house. The invaders aren't what they seem, but then neither is the couple.

The acting is quite good, no massive moving heart wrenching scenes but you have sufficient character building and then the action and revelations keep the film rolling at a steady pace.
