      Trapped in a tiny box, i watched this film in a tiny cinema that felt like an arena in comparison to the nightmare on screen. Ryan Reynolds is fantastic as Paul Conroy who has the best phone i have ever seen, you can really feel his frustration throughout the film when he is put on hold and having to explain his situation over and over. Dark and Hitchcockian with Rear Window comparisons of being shot in one place, it is an intense thriller with an intelligent ending that left me cold and the audience stunned. The first few minutes are just so horrible, for a while, it is a POV and you feel scared and want to shout at the screen. Since Oren Peli changed horror, Cortes has made the genre turn another corner in an understated simple film. Brilliant.
