Sam Claflin absolutely nailed this role. Many abrupt/awkward transitions throughout the movie as well as a few unnecessary scenes trying to aid character development that fell short and came off as weak storytelling. The movie will keep you interested and the start studded cast each stepped up to the plate within their own roles. It's a great $5 Tuesday movie, but don't pay normal prices to see it.

Every character is merely a stereotype or symbol, not a fully-fleshed out person. Indeed, one has to wonder what every actor, including Monaghan, is doing in this flimsily written psychological thriller, but perhaps, that question isn’t even worth the speculation.

The film initially pretends to have some sensitivity about mental illness, but blatantly trivializes it and uses it as a crutch upon which to hang the villain’s increasingly maniacal actions.

Sam Claflin is best in show, but his performance is undercut by the film’s inability to escalate or explore the ramifications of its premise.
