My reaction
Concept:3/4 (Good)
Story:3/4 (Good)
Characters:4/4 (Great)
Dialog:3/4 (Good)
Pacing:3/4 (Good)
Cinematography:3/4 (Good) You can hardly give them credit for making it feel claustrophobic when almost the whole movie is set inside one tiny room.  Bold gimmick, but not impressive.
Special effects/design:4/4 (Great)
Acting:4/4 (Great)
Music:3/4 (Good)
Subjective Rating: 7/10 (Good, 3/4 (Good)). An all-around well made movie, very tense, but never manages to feel like something special to me.
Objective Rating (Average):3.3/4 (Very good)
