“This is probably one of the better B-grade films Iu0026#39;ve seen in a long time. Bonus points that the filmmakers are relatively newbs, especially writer and director Mikhael Bassilli of which this film was his first full length feature film with only one previous short film on his resume.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe directing was great with zero complaints, and he directed his cast effortlessly. The story was nothing revolutionary for its genre, but it was character driven and different enough to keep you glued to the screen. Aside from some minor plot and technical issues, it had constant suspense, and the story progressed with decent continuity and cohesion. The 93 min runtime was just right, as was the pacing. Cinematography was excellent, and the score was perfect and fitting – a rare find in B films, which are normally loud, annoying, overbearing and unfitting.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe casting and performances were spot on and convincing, especially Taja V. Simpson. If you like this genre, this is a decent little gem, especially considering it was put together by newbs. Itu0026#39;s a well deserved 7.5 rounded up to an 8/10 from me.”
