Quite entertaining
11 September 2018 | by patrick-413See all my reviews

It's amazing what you can do with a low budget, solid script and good acting. There are some things that could have been better, mostly if the secondary characters had been given some more to do and had more interesting personalities. But the acting and especially the writing of the two leads (Neil and Liles) were the strong point, and made it an entertaining, if short, feature. Recommended if you like psychological thrillers with a bit of sci-fi. It won't change your life but it's a fun way to spend an hour and a half.
