"A PULSE-POUNDING EXPERIMENT IN TERROR. Director Mira keeps you riveted and Elijah Wood gives one of his best performances. MAYBE RISK HASN’T DIED YET IN FILMMAKING."

- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"VIRTUOSIC - A DAZZLER! Infused with originality and expertly executed. The suspense is as taut and responsive as piano wire."

- Marjorie Baumgarten, The Austin Chronicle

"A tight and hugely tense thriller."
