Expressionistic camera work set the tone, a captivating film score fills the mood, and an enticing use of color palette are employed as tools to enhance this daring and very suspenseful cinematic experience. A delicious cast of character performances are featured as each clue is pieced together, including Paul Dano as the haunting yet captivating sadistic killer.”
