This one surprised me as it didn't use the stereotypes I was expecting. I'm not normally into thrillers but my wife is so I get to watch a lot of them. I had preconceptions that were largely unfulfilled, my kudos to the film's creators on that one. The amount of time establishing the antagonist's back story and its substance were unusual as well as the change she showed over the course of the film. Certain shots and elements felt predictable but the most important ones felt smartly used or genuinely clever or original. My favorite uniqueness was the way you are led to be unsure of whether the antagonist is really the antagonist for a good portion of the film. Anyone who likes thrillers would enjoy the originality here and those who don't will find this a welcome departure from the script outline most others adhere to so well.
