Mystery/horror film with a brilliant, shocking double twist ending that will send viewers reeling. Anderson is fantastic in the lead, and the killings are original and creative.

Adds more story to the conventional slasher method. Plays like a mystery thriller and slasher hybrid. This time the story moves the film instead of providing background and reason for killings. But the kills are still there and quite unique. The blood and gore is also present, but it is used more moderately and not with every single death. The most memorable thing about the movie is the ending. Within the las 5 min, we are treated to twist on top of twist on top of twist, most of which happen within the same scene. It is an ending worth remembering, for absurdity and delight.
