Customer Review

on 21 January 2009
This film starts off with a brutal tour de force where a woman escapes from the cellar she is being held captive and makes a desperate ultimately futile bid for freedom. This an especially stark way for a film to start.
The film then shifts focus to her captor as he stalks and traps his next victim. These scenes are especially creepy, and creates quite a feeling on unease.
The main bulk of the film focuses on the relationship between prisoner and captor, as psychotic Herman(James DuMont) and terrified Rudy(Michelle Tomlinson) play mind games with eachother. All well and good, but in my opinion the psychological complexities could have been explored further, and I would have liked more of an explanation of how Herman has become such a monster. Still, its a constantly involving, tense struggle of wills and desires, and although its all a little bit grim and grimy, the performances of the two leads hold the film together.
The best bit-Herman getting a little bit upset with two bible bashers interrupting his murderous antics.
An interesting film if not very original. 3 out of 5
