Trivia

The sign above Jack's head in the library used to say "Non-Fiction" but Aaron Koontz, the director, asked for it to be changed in post-production to read "Fiction" to better speak to Jack's psyche and mental state. See more »

Could Have Been Really Good But...
25 July 2017 | by omendataSee all my reviews

Movie had a good premise and started off quite well but soon went down the toilet with its over the top gore, poor photography and confused story.

The music was actually not bad; very reminiscent of John Carpenter and in many places seemed out of place , the plot was confusing - was he actually a psycho and imagining everything which i presume was the end game there wasn't much explanation at the end and it seemed to end too soon. The over the top gore actually began to make it look like a comedy and we started laughing at points when we really shouldn't have!

Some poor acting and bizarre plot holes didn't help.

Overall it could have been good but ended up in the bargain bin bucket!
