Note to the writers: Just because a movie is a mystery doesn't mean everything in it has to be.

Christopher Null

one long, slow buildup to a surprise ending that conceals two or three twisting secrets while still remaining elusive and open to interpretation.

Felix Vasquez Jr.
Cinema Crazed

Is a much different film than "Hatchet." It's focused, it's low key, it's original, and it really takes its plot seriously...

L.A. Weekly

It's a wit-free homage to Hitchcock and M. Night Shyamalan that, for all its slick presentation, never comes close to hitting the mark of its forebears.

Scott Weinberg

A surprisingly engrossing two-person character study that (gradually) reveals something quite a bit darker beneath the surface.

Spiral is an interesting experiment in the evocation of things that do not actually exist, and it succeeds with sizzle.

Brian Orndorf

It's an obvious, overlong, determined misfire of a motion picture...ambitious, but it's also fatally flawed.

Dread Central

"The camera moves are jarring at times and soothing at others ... a skillful, well crafted piece."

Psychological thriller. Mason is a loner with a crappy 9-5 and only one person he could call a friend. His boss, Berkeley. That is until he meets the new girl… More
