The collar rank insignia placement was incorrect for US military. The bottom of rank insignia should be 1/2 inch from collar edge and aligned on an imaginary line bisecting the collar point to the inside of the collar. See more »

User Reviews

 
Production Flaw Inexcusable but Thriller Indie Works for the Most Part
9 June 2016 | by LeonLouisRicciSee all my reviews

Other Reviewers on the IMDb Site have pointed out that during a Crucial Scene near the End, a Sound Editing Problem Exists that is Unfathomable.

The Music Swells to completely Drown Out the Dialog between Characters and it leaves Unanswered Questions and a Frustration that can't be ignored. It's only One Scene but it's a Critical Scene and is Unacceptable.

Other than that bit of Clumsiness, the Movie is a Good Psychological Thriller that is Well Acted and Staged. Some Gruesome Horror and Tense Situations make for an Unsettling Uncovering of what's going on in the Mind of an Elderly Man (Gene Jones) and His Live-In-Nurse (Kristina Klebe).

There's some Fine Back Up Performances from Hassie Harrison and Jerry Lockhart and both Add to the Edgy Excitement. The Denouement is both Predictable and somewhat Surprising and the Film is Finely Photographed

Overall, Worth a Watch for Fans of Thrillers and Indie Cinema.
