Goofs

Pancuronium Bromide is safe... If you perform an endotracheal intubation and mechanic ventilation after administering it. It's an old anesthesia drug and it paralyses your breathing musculature. The character says he used it on himself. He was all alone and that would certainly kill him. The drug would certainly kill the girl also as we don't see him doing anything to aid her breathing.

Quotes

Seth: Shhh, shh, shh. What I just put in you, it's called pancuronium bromide, it's a paralyzing agent. It stings a little. Don't worry, it's safe, I tested it on myself.

tension is low but twist is intriguing
12 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Seth (Dominic Monaghan) works at the animal shelter. He runs into waitress Holly (Ksenia Solo) on the bus. She doesn't remember him but he remembers her. He has had a crush on her since school and starts becoming obsessed. Claire (Jennette McCurdy) is her roommate and she is still hounded by her ex Eric. Seth tries to ask her out but she rejects him. He steals her notebook. He sets up a cage in the basement of the animal shelter and kidnaps her. Security guard Nate is usually the only one around and nobody can hear her over the animal noises.

This has a couple of actors that I like. The first half of the movie struggles to pick up the pace in a seemingly predictable kidnapping film. There is a reveal of something different and more interesting around the halfway point. This may work better to compress the first half and do the kidnapping earlier. Monaghan may also be better off playing it less creepy and more of a good Samaritan. This takes the standard horror and gives it a twist. It has potential but doesn't fully achieve an engaging movie.
