  • Surprisingly, not that bad. by 4

    Well, lets take in consideration the budget, the cover, the name of the movie and be honest, does anyone expect a masterpiece?

    It surely is not, yet, it is a slasher with a plot, character development, bound with a little torture porn, mixing all together and giving us the final product . It is working, does deliver on some levels, doesn't overstretch, only 78 minutes and you genuinely understand what's happening. Now I am not a fan of these kind of productions, but I think everyone involved in the making of the movie did a pretty good job. I have no real complaints, because the movie doesn't take too much time to start developing its action and also it ties all lose ends.

    A simple and effective little movie, that proved budgets can be overrated sometimes. A slasher that I don't see becoming a cult following in the future, and most likely will pass unnoticed, but strangely enough, it is better than a lot of such views I had recently.

    Cheers!

  • Actually a decent watch by 6

    So I watched this the other night in the early hours, good storyline, the main lead actors did a good job with what they had, (especially box) you can actually imagine something like this happening, theres one scene that made me feel sick (involving a child) which is something I cant stand seeing in movies, but it's good when a movie can play with your emotions , so to say its low budget they did a good job, it's not a second view movie but its definitely worth a watch once, 5.5 out of 10 from me.

  • Good, could have been better by 5

    For a low budget horror/thriller this was much better than I expected it to be. The 2 leads actors were excellent, especially Craig Ingham in the lead as Box. At the core of it the writers had a good idea for a movie, and a bit of a decent script, but in the end all of this needed to be developed and fine-tuned. While Box was developed some, James Mason's character Nathan was not well written leaving the viewer with lots of questions. In fact there were potential plot lines in the film that weren't expanded upon at all. Worst of all there was a particular turn of events in the film that made no sense considering the plot. I liked the film but it's obvious they were constrained by budget and some poor writing. Still it's worth a watch , held my interest and certainly wasn't boring.
