The packaging and trailer hint as a Saw clone, but the film itself may pleasantly surprise. Instead of clumsily trying to shoehorn in a reason for its psycho to eviscerate people in nasty ways on-screen, Choose manages to inflict some serious tension with its opening, and then ground the story in character, introducing us to Kathryn Winnick's student journalist, and her caring cop dad played by 'The Usual Suspects' Kevin Pollack. They make a sweet and convincing family unit, and she's good, making you care for the lead as she starts to find herself increasingly tangled up in the case of a local nutjob forcing people to make nasty (and often life or death) choices. Nicely the plot has more to give than it first seems, and though it uses the typical fallbacks of throwing around suspicion, mystery cases and nutso side characters, it all amounts to an enjoyable and interesting psycho-killer thriller with some very entertaining moments. Its occasionally overplayed by side characters, and it veers into occasional cliche, but the execution (sorry) is a cut above average.
