Where the film fails is in the actual structure of the story, which is riddled with inconsistencies, gaping holes in the plot, and what seems to be a mid-point shift from one story to a completely different one.
The performances are outstanding, as is the writing and directing. I definitely was tense watching the film (again, I'm a wimp) but I don't think you need to be deterred from the film if you're not a fan of horror.
