Movie Reviews

Surprisingly good

"I had a free rental coming at the video store, and I just grabbed this because I was in the Halloween spirit. It's not really a horror movie, but sort of character study, so if you're looking for something like Saw, this isn't it, even though the cover suggests that. The movie reminded me a little bit of Boxing Helena.

It was made on a very low budget, there's a special feature that shows a local news show reporting on the making of the little independent movie being made in their city. As long as you're not expecting a big Hollywood production, and don't mind independent movies, you'll probably enjoy it.

Mary Skinner, the actress that played the girl being held captive in the basement, was very good, she's beautiful, but she has a natural look that sets her apart. I tried to find more of her work, but this is just about the only thing she's done, which is a shame, I hope she comes back to acting at some point.
Great Movie

WOW, Where to start...Great DVD box art, Title is better than Reindeer Games( imdb ),Alter Ego(commentary track) and nice plug about these filmmakers who went on to do a Project Greenlight " Battle Of Shaker Heights". This do to some behind the scenes drama, The director was killed after this film in a botched car-jacking and the others went on to do ONLY comedies. This is a good film and works well, Kyle Rankin & Mary Skinner as the leads are perfect. This movie needs to be nominated for best use of a Baby Monitor and that "I've fallen and can't get up" gizmo. You know it's even holiday-themed with this Sick Santa Icon. Sooo, If you looking for the early works of Project Greenlight winners-This film is very good and intense drama."
