Thoughts

An interesting little tale, one that covers the horror of a twin searching for his sibling in the hopes of spending more time together, whether it is in this life or the next. I felt it was a little bit clunky to start with, setting up each character in small town America style, and dragging out the fact that Kara and Marissa were the one and the same person, when that bit was quite clear from the start.

However, once the action started, it was really very intense. Almost entirely taking place in the claustrophobic basement of a spooky power plant, on a dark and stormy night, it was gripping. With the addition of a ticking clock, literally to start with, the odds started stacking up against the good guys, to the point where I was ready to give up on their behalf! They stuck at it though, and wound their way towards a satisfying conclusion. Not bad at all.
