This claustrophobic and dingy thriller preys on the fears of parents who wave their adult children off on holiday,
Teresa Palmer plays an Australian backpacker who has one night stand with Max Riemelt’s hunky German teacher, but the next morning she finds herself a hostage.
It’s an chilly urban nightmare whose best moments of skin itching creepiness and nasty violence arrive early.
Marred by its cramped confines, the story finds it difficult to make room to manoeuvre or build momentum, possibly the reason it made a modest impact at the box office.
