Suspenseful Psychological-Thriller
2 September 2008 | by scrolls1See all my reviews

It's slow motion psychological thriller by legendary actress Sara Botsford (Murder by Phone, etc.), and this is her first directed movie. Also role by actress Geneviève Bujold (The Obsession, etc.) is cool, because fiction come to real as his role. Very impressive role by this legendary thriller actress. It's feeling like that she's with her own mind is scared and horrified by situation. Not training role or something like this. Much better than Sliver (1993), Scissors (1991), or When a Stranger Calls (2006), because atmosphere is more real than fiction. Almost same plot (women inside at closed space, where is somebody who control whole apartment). Atmosphere on climax is very tense as hitchcock:ian style from old movies from early 1950. It's future classic on this reality-TV community (Big brother, etc.). Rating: 8/10
