“Enjoyable indie movie that dumps you into a real life crazy situation immediately. The concept of this is pretty cool. I wonu0026#39;t write spoilers but itu0026#39;s another tech type thriller involving FaceTime to help a woman literally see thru it (thus the title).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s cleverly directed, using split screens and some other techniques to keep the audience on edge. The characters are pretty well developed and it drives pretty solid tension throughout.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOn the downside itu0026#39;s predictable to a certain degree, the ancillary characters are way too over the top and some of the character decisions might make you say u0026quot;come on now wtfu0026quot;. But given that, itu0026#39;s effective and quick too so you donu0026#39;t get off track for the most part.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThereu0026#39;s some ridiculous u0026quot;suspend realityu0026quot; moments and itu0026#39;s tries a bit too hard to be comedic with cartoonish characters but itu0026#39;s still effective.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI would recommend if you like a quick 75 minute run time and some thriller/action/creativity. 6.3/10.”
