Sean Durkin’s disquieting debut feature film is a slow-paced psychological thriller which works exceedingly well due to the superb performance of its star, Elizabeth Olsen. Olsen works magic to create a totally believable character that sucks us into the dark story.
A good supporting cast includes John Hawkes, Sarah Paulson and Brady Corbet.
As always, we recommend you don’t ruin any surprises by reading spoilers or watching this trailer:
