Storyline

Bud is a strange loner who works in a liquor store by day and is addicted to betting on the horses at night. He lives in a low-rent building in an even lower-rent section of town, and one day a couple, who appear to be brother and sister, move into Bud's building. Soon the sister begins to try to seduce Bud, but not for the reasons one would expect, as she and her "brother" aren't what they appear to be--but neither is Bud. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Humiliation through art ........
4 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Horseplayer" is a well acted, but slight, psychological drama. Brad Dourif plays a loner who bets on the ponies by day, and works in the liquor store across the street at night. This very orderly existence is totally upended by the arrival of an artist, M.K. Harris, who gets his artistic inspiration from his girlfriend, Sammi Davis, and her seductions of innocent strangers. When Sammi Davis puts her moves on Dourif complications ensue. Understandably Dourif does not handle rejection well, so when she has to let him go, he gradually becomes unhinged, with disastrous results. Vic Taback, in his last film, is Dourif's sympathetic boss and owner of the liquor store. - MERK
