      Tom A Just a very bad copy of Scarlet Witch. Very cheap. Maximum 3 different Scenes. Very slow, it makes me angry. Music almost only the same. Athmosperic music the whole movie makes me even more angry. Unrealistic and its also no art. Has an "it was just a dream" ending. Bad storyline dont watch. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/20/24 Full Review Vincent M Just as bad as expected. They tried. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/28/23 Full Review Will F It was ok, but Eileen as a character, just gross. What's with the man hating in all these movies these days. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Good thriller for the budget on a diet while scratching your head when you can only hire 2 actors. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Darius D Fairly boring. Characters - no depth. Outcome - predictable. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/02/23 Full Review Ethan S I get that it's a low budget movie and didn't expect much but it was just funny how bad it is Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/02/22 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Tim Robey Daily Telegraph (UK) The Voice’s vengeful motives are ridiculous, and the audience is captive to the special dullness only a suspenseless potboiler can provide. Nov 15, 2023 Full Review Rich Cline Shadows on the Wall Director James Mark keeps the imagery sleek and the atmosphere intriguing but, even when another person appears, it's difficult to care about characters and a situation that are so undefined. Rated: 2/5 Oct 5, 2022 Full Review Christian Valentin Spectrum Culture An admirable albeit flawed evolution of Mark’s genre filmmaking, this delivers some of his familiar bloody carnage but functions as more of an enigmatic thriller. Despite a solid lead, early intrigue, and late action, this felt like a misfire by the end. Sep 29, 2022 Full Review Rob Aldam Backseat Mafia While Control may be limited by its budget, it’s certainly not hampered by a lack of imagination. Sep 21, 2022 Full Review Joel Harley Starburst Making the best of its single room setting (reminiscent of cult classic Cube), James Mark's sci-fi thriller achieves a lot with a little – snappy visuals, a simple concept, and a compelling lead performance. Rated: 3/5 Sep 9, 2022 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film There are some smart ideas here which help to keep the film interesting even if they never quite achieve their potential. Rated: 3/5 Aug 31, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
