Fantastic storytelling and amazing acting from Sam Cattee and Matt Rawlings, I was gripped from start to finish, second guessing the pairs every move. Don't close your eyes, as this is a must watch! *****
Wow!! Excellent acting, i was fully immersed in the story! Brilliant!
Oh my God, so so so well done! I was glued to the screen every second. It was honestly so good!
We just saw it and loved it. Absolutely excellent acting, script and direction. Gives you the creeps and. showing how behaviour and relationships can be affected through the Internet to an extent that this story would have been far fetched 5 years ago but now you can identify with it and realise how well observed and indeed how realistic it is though terrifying! Well done.
It's such a clever piece, and performances were brilliant from both. Such a genius idea when in lockdown.
Watch it. Absolutely blown away by what these guys have achieved. Such a creative way to tell a great story! I'm not going to give any spoilers but the end came too soon for me!
So good! It's so impressive and well executed. It was honestly so fantastic! So fitting for our time and done in such a refreshing way.
I just watched "Close Your Eyes I'm Filming and MY GOODNESS! I was literally on the edge of my seat, it's so clever!
Brilliant! Totally absorbed as everything was so perfect! Funny as well as terrifying!
