This has a lot going for it - the inventive non-chronological sequences early on, a great cast, terrific edge-of-the-seat thrills, plenty of suspense and mystery, and lots and lots of heavy rain.

Top marks for creating the right atmosphere!

But it falls down in two places - it reveals the main plot twist too early. This revelation almost kills any remaining suspense and interest in further proceedings is almost lost. The whole basis of the movie hangs on this brilliant plot twist and it needed to come right at the end.

However, even with this failing it's still worth a look if you want to see a fast paced intriguing thriller. A lot of people must have thought so too, as at the box office it made approx. 3 times its cost!

Oh, and the other failing - how could anyone write out the stunning Rebecca De Mornay so early on in a movie! KAN

Entertaining yarn with some twists and turns, a group of assorted travellers find themselves holed up overnight in a run down Motel in the middle of nowhere and they are trapped there by a heavy storm and flooded roads, its a bit like the ten little indians story with people getting murdered one by one but who is the killer? Its actually very watchable, well acted and well put together with some genuine jump out your seat frights here and there, its not your usual cheap slasher movie, its quite a few steps above that because there are a few unexpected twists and turns going on and as the story progresses you realise that actually all is not what it appears, anyway, I wont give the game away here but I bought this movie because I admire the work of actor John Cusak, he never seems to make bad movies and here is no exception, this is very good and an entertaining movie to watch on a rainy evening.

Ten strangers are brought together in a desolate motel due to a savage rainstorm. Although relieved in finding shelter they are murdered one by one. If they are to survive they have to uncover the secret that has brought them all together. One of those films which leaves you thinking "what the heck" after the finish. Great cast which included John Cusack, Ray Liotta, Amanda Peet, Alfred Molina, Clea DuVall and Rebecca De Mornay. A must buy for anyone who loves that film which is a bit different.

I don't know what it is about this film but it's one that I never get tired of watching ( The big Lebowski is another one), great transfer to bluray and two wonderful commentaries on the U.S. version which is region free.

Well above average serial killer romp with a clever twist. I won't spoil it. Just watch it and enjoy a creepy night in!

A modern attempt at Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None. It's done fairly well, with a twist that I really didn't expect. My only criticism is that they reveal what is really happening too soon, and so the tension of the film is relaxed to a certain extent. Good performances from John Cusack as always and Ray Liotta supports with a great success. A good mystery, very close to being great

Wasn't expecting it to be that good as i'm not usually into these type of thriller/mystery films but i do like john cusack, always been a class actor same with ray liotta, both good actors, it's a good watch so i recommend it to anyone thinking of buying it!

A great film with a great twist. Brilliantly cast, and well directed. The film will have you second guessing from the off, but holds the twist until the very end. A great film.

One for fans of films with clever twists such as Fight Club, The Machineist, Shutter Island, The 6th Sense, The Number 23, Memento, 12 Monkeys and The Others.

This is a gripping thriller, kept me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning. Great twist, turns and shocks with enough gore for good measure.
