Frustratingly bad...

Who writes this cr@p. Do not be fooled by the preview, this movie is painfully slow, which i might be able to put up with IF the movie eventually takes me somewhere. This film goes nowhere. The story is boring, the acting is flat and it astounds me that people actually got payed to produce this.

This movie...just skip it. There was really no reason for it. No good story at all. Very, very little suspense. I actually googled looking for spoilers so I wouldn't have to finish watching it. The therapist has no common sense it seems, the parole office has even left. The wife is just an after thought. Ridiculous story. I mean I guess for some there might be some meaning to it, discovering yourself and hidden thoughts you have, whatever. If you're really interested in watching this, just rent it or wait until it's free.

To drown or not to drown, that is the question.

I thought this was a very good movie. It had a twist at the end which I really like. It was somewhat predictable, but, still very good. This movie really digs deep into our deepest fears and doubts. It's pretty scarey which I love thrillers like this.
I think it's a good rainy day movie. Enjoy!

Don't Even Rent

No. No. NO. Don't even rent it, it tortuously slow story telling that is not compelling or driven by tone or a gripping narrative. I really wanted to like this... I love a good thriller. But unfortunately, this was not one. I thought, I'll just rent it... I've watched B thrillers before and enjoyed them. Nope. Wasted 5 Dollars. I'm writing this to hopefully safe the next person their money!

The plot here was loaded with psychological thriller potential, but the movie did NOT deliver. Fell flat on suspense. What could have been a really exciting movie is a total dud.
