Strong, claustrophobic horror film
7 August 2015 | by Roel1973See all my reviews

Three junkies enter a derelict house in order to cook crystal meth. Soon they start sampling their own product and paranoia takes over. Or is there something spooky going on?

Director (and DOP) Dan Mintz makes great use of the old boarded up house with its creaky floors and doors and where nary a ray of sunlight can enter. He also offers some effective jump scares, but it's the oppressive, claustrophobic atmosphere which makes this surprisingly strong horror film stand out for me. I also love that it offers only a hint of the paranormal and remains ambiguous until the end.

Also worth mentioning is lead Brad Hunt who can act all kinds of nervous and paranoid and really gets under your skin.
