There is,ATM is very reminiscent of classic horror movies such as The Shining, Halloween, and Misery and seems to draw from modern successes such as The Strangers and The Collector. The film is simple, which clearly works to it's advantage. There is, thankfully, no nudity or vast amounts of unneeded gore or profanity either. It is clear and to the point, three victims trapped in extreme conditions by a mysterious killer.

Honestly, my wife and I loved this film despite the extremely low and negative reviews it has been given. Furthermore, I'd probably place ATM as one of my top 15 favorite horror films. It's all here, good acting, tense scenarios, suspense, action, horror, and intrigue. The film doesn't draw anything out and flows extremely well from beginning to end. We even found ourselves actually liking the characters!

If you like movies with extreme conditions, survival, horror elements, scarcity of unneeded gore and profanity, and a straightforward plot, look no further. ATM satisfies its purpose. A highly engaging and entertaining film.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This movie is not that bad. It has suspense, action and a fairly good ending for that kind of thrillers. I was a bit disappointed that the killer was just a psychopath and he had no motivation of killing them but I guess the writers find it better that way... The cast is ok and the plot is really good and quite original actually. It is enjoyable and if you watch as a thriller it's good if you see it as a great picture it's not that good because there are many better thrillers than ATM but the film is still entertaining Expand

This movie is boring in the beginning. Images don't really explain much, just made me confused. Takes too long to get to the main plot. Some predictable parts. Many loose ends.

Some predictable parts. Many loose ends. Ending suggests sequel maybe?? Bland characters, just explains that they are co-workers. Despite all that criticism.. I would highly recommend this movie to others. Good late night movie. Expand

The movie is somewhat scary because many people can relate to that type of situation, ATMs are scary places at night. I'm not gonna spoil anything but I will say that the reason it didn't get a 10 from me is the ending. It wasn't the best ending I have seen, but not the worst either. If you are looking for an entertains movie as a time waster, then this is the perfect movie for you,but if you are looking for a very logical movie with a big twist, then watch something else. I enjoyed it though, and I would probably enjoy a sequel. Expand

It is full of surprises along the way, and some great performances to keep you hooked. At times the editing is in-your-face and becomes a little too distracting, but only in the beginning. The concept does have a few flaws to it, but it knows that, and does its best to keep you engaged all the way to the end. I would recommend this film as it will surprise you, don't let the fact it didn't have a massive release put you off. Expand
