Pleasantly surprising contained thriller
4 December 2018 | by stephenhermanSee all my reviews

Heard some good things about this film and it lives up to the hype. A very smart, edgy contained thriller. Great visuals. I'm keeping an eye on this director to see what he can do with a bigger budget. Highly recommended.
