This was ok. A bit disappointed in the ending - it's a lot of buildup but then just kind of falls flat. The acting was good, though!

Very impressive thriller that keep you on your toe until the end. you have to make attention to important details in this movie. Good acting of Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall and Joel Edgerton.

I saw this in the theater and was really impressed. Great work by Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall, etc. ** Beware any spoilers in other comments! Watch the movie before you dive into plot details. **

Superior for a Blumehouse production but that is due to the fine acting by most of the cast. It is worth a look, but structurally it doesn't deserve any raves like some of the reviews I am reading here. Well..to each his own.

Neat little thriller. Won't change your life, but nice to see Bateman in a dark, edgy role like this, and director/actor Egerton acquits himself well. Nicely shot and Rebecca Hall superb as always.

A thriller with an unusual twist.
You can be terrified by each individual character.

A good entertainment. The three principals (but above all a wonderful Rebecca Hall) put in some fine acting, and the director/writer Joel Egerton (who also plays one of the leads) has given them a good story and script to work with. Slowly builds up a sense of dread that keeps you guessing.

Characters:
Jason Bateman: Simon
Rebecca Hall: Robyn
Joel Edgerton: Gordo

Movie Plot:
The movie is about a married couple (Simon & Robyn) relocating to another state and unwillingly reconnects with an insistent gift giving school mate (Gordo). The annoying school mate (Gordo) repeatedly pops up unannounced to talk to Robyn & help Robyn with minute tasks around the house when Simon is away at work. Simon becomes bothered by Gordo’s persistence to be a part of their lives. Simon confronts Gordo and severs the relationship. Robyn finds out that her husband Simon was Gordo’s childhood Bully. Gordo is angered by Simon’s rejection and lack of accountability. Gordo begins to stalk/harass and create problems for the married couple.

I thought the movie was pretty good and worth watching.

-Normally, friendships grow organically. And if they don't serve both parties, they just kind of organically dissipate.
-Don't interrupt me, because I gotta power right through it and then you can talk right afterwards, okay?
-And then there are these. It's from the Bible. "Behold he who conceives mischief and brings forth falsehood." "He has dug a pit and hollowed it out," "and has fallen into the hole which he made."
Spoiler Alert:
-Or maybe I did. I don't know. See, I could tell you the truth. Maybe I didn't do it, but a liar won't believe anybody else, right? I think you just need to go and (intentional removed) It's all in the eyes, you see.
