Review: (#1) It’s an unusual choice, one with artistic merit, but one that doesn’t particularly inspire theatrical attendance. (#2) Going from an attempt at art to crass commercial simplicity is a bit jarring. Unfortunately, the second design is more likely to give the impression of plot to the audience than the first, which could make it slightly more effective.

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: If you read a plot description, the trailer doesn’t quite match with that if you happen to catch it first. That may not be a bad thing since the trailer seems more like a relationship thriller rather than a stalker thriller, two distinctly different styles and audiences.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
