Very uneventful and unfinished thriller
20 October 2015 | by jackmeatSee all my reviews

My quick rating 4,3/10. When Shocktober is here, I like some horror, sci fi is good with the horror mix, thriller works as well and this movie had all that....OK it had that in the billing. Truth be told, this movie has zero horror elements and even the sci fi element is a stretch. All that is left is a thriller, and not a very good one. A poorly acted group gets stuck (by glue) into an apartment with no reason/warning. No food, water, phone etc. just a straight up quarantine. The movie explores how people would react to this situation. Well, that is your movie, no rhyme or reason, no actual tension and no acting that can hold the story. Even 76 minutes seemed to long as evident in the drawn out scenes that another person described as "making the movie longer" or I would call "filler" There was no real story, more so just an idea. This was evident in how it ended. Too bad, with more to it and better acting, they may have had something.
