“How do you turn fifty-five minutes in a drab, cell-like room with muted fluorescent lighting into an edge-of-the-seat horror movie? Well, the director manages it with aplomb thanks to a heady blend of shocks, intrigue and tightly wrought tension – not to mention some trippy strobing of the highest order.” The Schlock Pit
