” … an effective variation on stalker/home-invasion thriller themes. Somewhat compromised by a one-dimensional stereotype of a villain, Victor Zarcoff’s debut feature nonetheless ratchets up a fair amount of suspense and intrigue…” Dennis Harvey, Variety
“Rather than let things play out found-footage style, the film is a hybrid of secret camera close-ups and more traditional shots. That’s good for those sick of the Paranormal Activity franchise and its ilk, but it’s hard not to imagine how much scarier it would be if a few more of the film’s more climactic scenes were captured on the secret camcorders… Matthew Ritchie, Exclaim.ca
“When you consider that more of us are renting than ever before, the idea that the person you hand over your hard-earned cash to could be dangerous is an uncomfortable idea.
