yup. over the time requirement (10 minutes)

Portrait of Gary Theroux
The actors playing the parents are pretty good, as are the girls. (The other couple is quite wooden.) I would have directed the father to express a little more concern under his purposefully calm exterior. I also would have picked up the pace of the acting, especially before the girl begins down the stairs. The photography on the stairs was too dark, partly because the flashlight used was too dim to be truly effective on camera. (Reference other films in which people are moving in the dark, especially down stairs, to see how to shoot and edit this.) I think the end credits come in too early. I would instead have gone to increasingly anguished shots of the couples at the restaurant to heighten the terror. All in all, not bad as it does tell a cohesive story which builds well. I guess the main thing I would have done different is crank up the tension.
