It is a fine little old-school thriller.

There's wit but never a wink in this smartly shot production, which pays homage to the 1980s without fetishizing the era.
The film may provide an introduction for some audience members to the Hitchcockian definition of suspense: It's the anticipation, not the happening, that's the fun.
The result can be palpably unnerving.
This is the perfect illustration of the banality of most scare movies.
