As with every other entry in this series, it would have been better were it 45-55 minute TV ep length rather than film length.

The twist reveal was a bit more sudden than it needed to be. They'd had him seem reasonably normal-ish until then.

I think I need to stop seeing these. They definitely should be shorter, and I can generally call most of the plot twists. Pooka was the only one that really worked. This also seemed gory just for the sake of gore, which isn't always a necessary element to horror, I think.

The few moments where the villain tried to be sympathetic just didn't work, because the storyline is just too much.

WAAAAAYYYYYYYY too long and predictable. I say the same thing I said before-the eps need to be much shorter and/or there should be less of them. Two people in an elevator? There's only so many options with that and they went for a fairly obvious one.

I also agree the reveal on the villain was like WHHHHAATTT? And the coworker who suddenly turns up with "date" in tow was just painful. Better to have this be a much shorter ep.
