    Slow motion but very interesting plot

    This is a horror/thriller movie directed by Adam Wingard with a very interesting plot. A young lady (Sarah/Amy Seimetz) finds out that her boyfriend (Garrick/A.J.Bowen) is a serial killer and turns him in to the authorities. While trying to recover herself from drinking problems, she finds what it seems to be a nice guy (Kevin/Joe Swanberg) at an AA meeting. When her ex-boyfriend escapes from custody and starts to pursuit her, her nightmare starts all over again. She fears for her life and for the life of her new boyfriend. The movie goes in a slow motion action until its final 20 minutes, which are electrifying and unpredictable. Amy Seimetz does an incredible work and by far she is the highlight of the movie.

    If you like action, this movie is not for you. But for those who like blood and graphical scenes or murder, this is the one.
