This is a lean and mean variation on a familiar theme, tense throughout, with some terrific performances

Definitely worth a watch, but I wouldn't go expecting a high quality film - the script is just too stale, despite some really good acting from the three leads (Lake Bell in particular surprised me with her acting ability).
The best part of this movie was probably the eerie soundtrack, which was done by film score vet Ben Lovett - the soundtrack really provided some nice backdrop to long shots and tension to the suspenseful scenes, I hope this guy does more work in horror/slasher/thriller films in the future.
