Frances McCullen (Chole Grace Moretz) is a waitress in an upscale Manhattan restaurant who lives with her roommate Erika (Maika Monroe). She is suffering the recent loss of her mother. One day she finds a purse left on the subway, and decides to return it to the owner. When she arrives at the home of Greta Hideg (Isabelle Huppert) she finds her a friendly, if not a little lonely, elderly lady who invites Frances in for coffee. They both find a friend in each other, until it becomes obvious that there is much more to Greta than meets the eye, and she has some really serious issues. Frances tries to cut the friendship off, but Greta isn’t that easy to get rid of.

This is one of the nicest thrillers I have seen in a long while. Chloe has turned into an amazing actress and she really does a great job in this film, but Isabelle Huppert is absolutely amazing in her role as the crazy lady. Her performance is completely terrifying and she gets a lot of credit for pulling this off perfectly. Sometimes the villain takes it way over the top, but her performance is just understated enough to keep us on the edge of our seat. The other cast members did a good job too, and maybe the credit goes to the screenwriters for such an excellent script. Anyway, it’s a Gothic type thriller right of the pages of the present Manhattan as the backdrop is very well chosen as well too, as it does a lot to add to the story. If you’re a fan of high energy thrillers, this is a great example of the genre, and one I would highly recommend. Excellent job!
