Johnny Kervorkian sets up the film nicely, but by the end, your worst fears are realised when it climaxes in the most anodyne way possible.

The film is let down by inauthentic dialogue and plotting that unravels rather embarrassingly in the final reel. But the tension is well sustained and Treadaway's performance is full of pallid intensity.

I found the plot uneven and awkwardly paced but have to admit the scares are solid.

Despite a few cliches and a slightly predictable climax, this is an atmospheric, well-made feature debut for the new filmmaking partnership of Kevorkian and Murphy.
