A bit formulaic survival horror that entertains the premise of a tetraplegic teen trapped inside an isolated house under a great danger, that tries to make the most of a simplistic and hardly credible plot that would've worked better as a short film, where its suspense and its atmosphere would've been more convincing and disturbing, without the unnecessary tricks that its director has to resort to in order to lengthen the plot. It has a lot of reminiscences from many movies like Cujo (1983) or Monkey Shines (1988), for instance.
