Don't take candy from strangers.....
4 August 2005 | by (Laguna Hills, CA) – See all my reviews

"Suite 16" has always been a personal favorite of mine. Mostly due to the excellent performances of Pete Postlethwaite & Antonie Kamerling, this gripping drama in psychological and physical control has all the right ingredients to get right under your skin like a bad case of flesh eating bacteria!

Summary: After an argument and fight with a wealthy one night stand in a posh hotel, young hustler Chris finds himself trapped inside. With nowhere to go and the cops closing in on the hotel fast, he wanders into "Suite 16" in a fit of despair. Inside, a handicapped and wheelchair bound Glover (Pete Postlethwaite) is held captive for the evening once discovered by Chris.

However, things change the next day when Glover informs Chris that the woman he slept with is now dead; and that he surely will be sought out for her murder. Lonely and bored, Glover offers to shelter Chris for awhile while the cuts and bruises from the previous nights escapades have time to heal.

Without much of a choice, Chris agrees......and our twisted tale of indulgence begins.

Doting on the boy with his money, Glover feeds Chris, offers him up plenty of booze and cocaine...and lavishes him with hookers at his whim to meet his every sexual desire.

All the while Chris treats Glover like a handicapped gimp, verbally insulting and abusing him during the process. After Chris realizes that his sexual encounters are being taped and watched by Glover in the next room....Chris threatens to leave, much to Glovers dismay.

So Glover makes a deal with Chris--he will pay him to stay and be his own personal porn star--while he watches every encounter from the room afar. Since Chris has dreams of starting his own club in the Carribbean, this offer sounds to good to be true....and he gladly accepts.

However, Glovers demands on what he would like Chris to do in the sack grow increasingly more disturbing, masochistic, and bizarre. Finally, after having enough Chris tries once again to leave.

But this time--Glover offers him ALL the money he will need for his club once he leaves- IF he performs just one sick and twisted act of murder for him.

Will Chris do it?

What will be the consequences of such a high stakes game of cat and mouse?

"Suite 16" is a very good movie with some heavy handed material. However, it is quite intriguing and compelling for mature audiences- and the chemistry of Glover and Chris is quite fascinating to watch as it develops throughout the film.

The DVD transfer isn't all that great (actually it sucks) - but as a viewer without heavy expectations on ratio aspect etc...the annoyance fades rather quickly.

All in all - if you can get your hands on it..stop in and check out "Suite 16".

Highly recommended!
