Top Critic

A deliberately paced indie offering that bills itself as a psychological thriller but is actually an aimless tone piece about twentysomething emotional dislocation that only in its final reel leaps somewhat clumsily into genre-oriented skirmish.

Full Review… | July 29, 2012

Proving that small of means does not equate to slight of impact, "Entrance" is a shrewdly distressing knockout.

Almost aggressively slow to begin with, but be patient.

Audience Reviews for Entrance


Extremely slow burn. Good ending but not sure if the first 60 minutes was even worth that ending.

Leina Rodriguez

Super Reviewer


A slow-burn horror film that proceeds so slow that it is perhaps a detriment, Entrance is essentially a drama film that ever so methodically inserts elements of tension that build towards its traumatic conclusion. The problem is that the film feels like a drama that decides to take a twist ending in its final moments instead of a horror film from beginning to end.


Suziey (Suziey Block) is living in the big city, working as a coffee barista, lives with her best friend and has a dog. Everyday it's the same routine. Wake up, feed dog, do makeup, go to work, come home. Rinse and repeat. Have some dull conversations with people that don't really add up to anything significant. Then one day she wakes up and her dog is gone. She's had enough of the big city and decides to move out. Her friends throw her a going away party, and that night a stalker that's supposedly been watching her for awhile makes his move by knocking her out and proceeding to kill all her friends, leaving her only for himself.

Many people of the "higher thinking" world say if you don't enjoy the film then you're a typical popcorn eating horror fan. In reality, I enjoy films like this that has a very slow progression (and by slow, I mean excruciatingly slow. The real action don't start until an hour into the film), but only if the main actors are doing a good job at keeping my attention. The lead actress in this film acts like watching paint dry. She has no inflection in her voice, it's completely monotone, and I was just sitting back waiting for something exciting to happen. If it had a better lead actress, this would've been a great film. As it is, it was just a long, drawn out story.
