I’ve watched some poor films in my time but this one is right up there with the worst! Simon Phillips performance is terrible, Juliette Bennett is unconvincing, and the rest of the cast were equally weak, it’s almost like watching a bunch of drama school students in their early years trying to act and learn the trade, rather than an actual film production where people were paid.
The script itself was very lazy by cherry picking concepts from other films such as Saw to try and tell a story that didn’t fit the concept of the film, which made the reality of the situation impossible to believe adding yet another reason why this film was so agonising to sit through. The best part of the whole film for me was right at the end when they introduced another character who wasn’t identifiable but equally culpable of the murders, as if to say woooo look someone else you didn’t know about let’s make a sequel .... haha yeah okay you make one, but don’t expect anyone outside of the cast to torture themselves again watching such utter dross.
This film is currently 3 and it’s not worth 25p, save your money. AVOID!

I liked this film but it is definitely isn't a English version of Saw.... The saw series is a definite horror throughout where as this is more a crime thriller, concentrating on the crime solving.

A little bit of a weak ending though I thought it could have been ended a bit better.

but a goodish film overall

The copy I had was very jumpy visually, I presume this was just the DVD I had rather than the filming style.... if it was meant to be like that, I didn't like it.

If you claim to be even just a mild fan of the horror genre then you probably know about the ‘Saw’ films by now. From the opening scene in ‘Shame the Devil’ you’ll probably be thinking, ‘Oh, this is a Saw rip-off.’ And you’d be right. Although, maybe Shame the Devil isn’t anything like Saw at all, because the Saw franchise was well-done and successful whereas Shame the Devil is total rubbish.

Sorry to be blunt, but there isn’t much going for this film. It’s a British version of Saw, only nowhere near as good on any level.

Yes, it’s a horror film and anyone who’s ever watched one probably isn’t expecting amazing performances from the characters. However, the actors here take bad acting to new levels. In fact, sometimes the performances are so bad that you could be excused for thinking that they’re a bunch of students, playing at being professionals.

However, maybe I’m being a little unfair on the actors. They really don’t get much to work with. Every line they’re forced to speak is filled with clichés and sounds like it’s been copied and pasted from one generic cop movie or another. With acting and dialogue like this it makes it impossible to care for any of the characters as they sort of bumble about, trying to catch a killer who’s hell-bent on making his victims confess to their darkest secrets or murdering them if they lie.

Simple verdict: don’t bother. There’s absolutely nothing positive about this film at all (with the possible exception of the quite breath-taking establishing shots of London, which I found quite nice!).

James (Simon Phillips) is a detective investigating the strange deaths of a "you lie you die" serial killer. The killer uses a lie detector as a trigger mechanism to kill its victims. The killings start to center around James who is released from the case. Determined to still solve the crimes, James flies to NY to see a crime profiler who happens to be an old girlfriend (Juliette Bennett). His pregnant wife (Lucy Clements) doesn't want him to go.

The opening scene made me chuckle. The killer had a Saw-like attitude and feel. This is a crime/thriller with a touch of horror. Film includes your basic twist, nothing fancy, and an ending I might have done differently.

Good rental.

F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

Interesting to watch....kept thinking "this will kick in, in a minute" and then it was over. What happened, who was that ?
With a British film using London and New York locations it seems a wasted opportunity.
and similar to The Big Sleep question..who killed the chauffeur ?
Who killed the taxi driver ?
