Review: This film is sort of a slowburn. It takes a while for anything to happen, but when it does, it happens..teehee. I always found the characters likable and I feel the real struggle for Angela. It’s a neat film, it makes something as huge as a parking garage seem so claustrophobic. Bently plays a very good psycho but at some moments, he hams it up. One thing I found particulary unsettling is the blood, it’s so faky and it upsets me every time I watch it.
