Screenwriters Bragi Schut and Maria Melnik devise interesting puzzles for the characters to solve, and Robitel maintains a consistent level of suspense without resorting to gore. The cast projects a generic, 50s B-movie vibe, but in a good way; no one character is especially likable or unlikable, and this keeps you guessing as to whom the filmmakers will kill off.
