It's really hard to categorize this film-it reminds me of movies like Sleuth and Mousetrap but with two teenagers on the verge of adulthood. So I guess it's a thriller, but it has elements of dark comedy and full on horror as well.

Yelchin gives a stunning performance as a convicted sex offender turned small fry drug dealer. (This film would sadly be released posthumously.) Lyle Vincent’s photography is fantastic, as is Erik Friedlander’s score. Basically the entire film is a treat, that is if you can handle the brutality beneath the polished surface.
