  • ★★★½ review by deadlyrivers on Letterboxd

    Plays its hand too early, and the attempts at comedy sometimes undermine the nastiness, but this is, for the most part, a genuinely unsettling, unusual and creepy watch. Dominic Bridges is one to watch, he has great ideas, and a good eye for visuals and making the most of a small budget, so, despite the film's shortcomings, there is shitloads of potential here.

    Will particularly strike a chord with anyone who lives in a city where apartment living and over-priced leasehold property is the norm! Director Dominic Bridges really, really doesn't like estate agents! Mim Shaikh plays Hussein, a typically unscrupulous agent who lives in his city pad. Little does he suspect that when he goes to work, a stowaway comes out to play... imaginative set up and nicely executed single location film which is powered by two fine central performances - Shaikh manages to make his character likeable despite his failings and Javier Botet's wiry physicality as Orlan is something to behold. It could have been a much darker, more insidious movie like Sleep Tight, but Bridges plays it for laughs instead and that's no bad thing.

    Intriguing little story. Very creepy with a jarring and effective score.

  • ★★★★ review by Matt Jones on Letterboxd

    An excellent British comedy horror with the bizarre premise of a strange Spaniard hiding in a slimy estate agent’s flat. Newcomer Mim Shaikh is impressive but Javier Botet steals the film with his outrageous behaviour.
