Visitor Comments

Ian Douglas: Pretty good for the genre. As other critics have mentioned, it does go on too long past its natural climax, becoming something of a you-can't-kill-me-I'm-the-Terminator rehash. Delicately plotted with good performances and plenty of skriks. Recommended if you like horror-thrillers (or need your girlfriend to grab you).

Jacques Botha (21): Finally an intelligent thriller! A gasp fresh breath compared to the slasher, bloody, no-plot films that gets made these days...

Isma Manitsa (28): A bit slow at times but still an enjoyable movie to keep you in your seat (or on the edge of it, at times).

Ricardo Africa (20): Good movie, kept the whole cinema on their feet.

Vassily Neviadomski 25: Excellent plot and performances.
