Definitely not horror, but not bad because of that. Dialogue was decent, but it wasn't suspenseful and it was too long considering there is literally only one location

There’s no horror here. It’s a slow drama with slight thriller elements that, while well acted and offering worthy commentary about loneliness and a destructive psychology present in the gay cruising subculture, doesn’t overcome being a tedious watch.

Suspenseful, Hitchcockian on so many levels and intense! Very well done!
