  • 2 stars "I didn't really care for this. It was well done and everything but some how pretty slow and boring for a serial killer/thriller."
  • 5 stars "Whaaa... Since when does Canadian film pull this kind of work off! Whoa! Watch this movie, do NOT listen to the naysayers. Well paced, well directed, FINELY acted, and ... it's set in Canada?!?! Made in Canada? No. It's too good. I'M from Canada, and I can't believe it - Susan Sarandon was incredible."
