Chloe Okuno directs Maika Monroe, Karl Glusman and Burn Gorman in this psychological thriller where an alienated American woman in Romania begins to believe her neighbour is spying on her.
Nice Seventies Euro horror mood here – modern restyling of Polanski, Don’t Look Now etc. Monroe is, as always, a very classy Scream Queen. She goes through about five stunning looks a day. No wonder Burn Gorman is always staring at her. He is suitably creepy too. A promising debut. If you approach it as a slow burn paranoid mystery rather than a scare-fest then it really hits a spot.
