[An] intriguing, stylish little film.

A pleasantly surprising near miss.

January 7, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

This watchable neo-noir tale is all style and not much on substance.

One of the best straight to video films by the director of America's Deadliest Home Videos! Very enjoyable, surprising and atmospheric.
