How to review this one without spoilers? I was blindsided a few times with this, I enjoyed the tension carried throughout, and the ending left me wanting more. 7/10.
What the hell did I just watch? There was a palpable, unsettling, tension throughout most of the film, using many excellent techniques to ratchet up the suspense without resorting to cheap jump scares. Sound is used amazingly well. Scenes focusing on close-ups on the characters’ face leaves you wondering what’s coming. Generally the cinematography was excellent. Unfortunately, I feel that the ending let the film down for me. I can’t say more without spoiling the film and you should see this without any advance information. I can say that I’m pleased the trailer didn’t give anything away – I was not prepared for what happened. Given this was from a first-time writer-director, it is an impressive effort. 7/10.
