Would that more genre films were as thoughtful and thought-provoking, mixing substance with splatter in a fashion that builds uneasiness on more than one level.

As a mood piece, the film works well, but as a character study, it’s flawed and as a narrative, it’s erratic.

A mashup of a variety of common movie material, it does a lot of things adequately but lacks the time and scope to do any of them truly well.
