A bloody psycho thriller that derails in the third act with the addition of the supernatural, but until that point is amazingly realistic and alarming.

this devilishly ambiguous thriller leaves viewers to decide whether to take the conventional or the less-traveled tunnel through its narrative network - and the results are a stylishly bloody descent into madness, murder and hell itself.

It's excessively and imaginatively gory, presented in a straightforward manner, but with the slightest hint of a wink.

The film hurtles towards the final 'revelation moment' like runaway train. If only it had stopped to take on board some of Barker's heavy mythical dread.
