Trivia

The film was originally written to take place entirely in the hot golden desert of inland Southern, CA. When it was suggested that production resources within the filmmaker's network were more readily available in northwest Arkansas due to family, friends and a previous film having been shot in that area the picture had to be revitalized and considered moving chase scenes from sand to snow and rocks to woods.

Goofs

As Andrew and Steve leave the house to go wherever it is that Steve has in mind, crickets are heard chirping in the night. Sorry, but not at Christmastime. Male crickets "sing" to attract females and repel other males during the mating season which would have ended sometime in the autumn. They would all be silently hibernating underground by late December. See more »

Pleasantly Surprised
11 January 2020 | by laceyhampsonSee all my reviews

I caught this mystery thriller at its limited theater release in Los Angles. I was kept on the edge of my seat through the whole movie and was surprised by the unexpected twist at the end.

It's apparent that this movie didn't have a big Hollywood budget, but the production quality is far above what I expected from a super micro-budget independent film.

The score was great at setting the tone of the movie, which was consistent throughout. The Villain was quietly evil, which was super creepy.

Give it a watch, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
