    Smart, existential horror rooted firmly in the Carpenter school of atmosphere and tone, without apeing. The film slowly turns the tension to a pretty intense climax. Maika Monroe is sort of becoming the female face of indie genre with this and last years great The Guest!

    The film gets off to a solid start, by the end it loses some steam, but the leads, the lovely Mary Elizabeth Winstead and the until recently underused Leland Orser completely carry this film even when it feels occasionally lost. Kudos to the director for giving them the stage and having a pretty solid grasp on de-programming.
