Truly a cult-like flic. A dark-comedy without the comedy ... unless your's is twisted. This flic is quite personal while at the same time very detached. A walk up apartment feels more like a dungeon. Violence is muted but always lurking. Francis is a simple man with profound vision. Richie V of NYC

Mark Hanlon's ridiculous and repellent hash of "Repulsion" and "Psycho," with scenic elements of "Seven" thrown in for good measure. Full Review

Even the walls seem to be sweating something viscous and unpleasant. Full Review

Lost its chance to be anything but an endurance test for the viewer. Full Review

First-time writer-director Mark Hanlon creates a solidly trippy atmosphere. Full Review

If you want pretentious and unsavory, check out Buddy Boy. Full Review
