I did not like it very much :( . Although the technical and visual section is very good, the film as a whole seemed rather loose. It starts well, promises a lot, the performances are convincing....everything looks good, but when half the film comes, you start (at least I) to predict how the end will be, and wishing to be wrong, but nope, unfortunately it was as I had supposed. Okay, I know ... someone might say that it is based on real events, but I leave that element out of my opinion, because I'm watching a movie, and I analyze it considering only that fact.

Some scenes in particular that I did not like:

- The woman at the end who did not have the guts for anything ends up killing her couple right at the last moment? Really? And everything happens just at the moment when the girl's mother is across the street... oh come on.

- And the last scene where the mother and the girl run down the street to get together and give each other a hug, in that ending that obviously seeks the tear.


A 5/10 for me.

A 8/10 for me! Fantastic cinematography! And John what a creepy fuck.  Amazing score.

I loved the fact that less is more. Use your imagination. When they enter the room where Vicki is kept, music loudly playing, slow motion and her screaming, door closing, you can just think what they were gonna do to her. Just chilling...love that feeling.

Great Aussie indie film. Keep them coming.  :red_heart:

Yes, that was something that worked very well in this movie. Sometimes you want to see everything, I recognize that many times I ask for that, that I want to seeee everything!!, but there are certain occasions (few) where we don't need that, when the director has the enough confidence and talent to provoke the same sensation without showing us what is actually happening, if it is done well it is as effective as seeing something explicit.

In this case, with resources such as the music, with the door closing, the use of the camera etc,etc .., ok ...does not always work, I would dare to say that most of the time in most movies it fails; in this movie that was very well done. It does not change my opinion about the movie I'm afraid, (I still think the end especially stinks), but I do recognize that aspect of the movie was very well done. Credits to the director!.

I just watched this. It was decent with tons of suspense. The boyfriend was a pretty evil character and his demise was well deserved and just brutal. He was a tough bastard. I wasn't expecting a happy ending, but I like surprises in movies.
