Truly gripping and thought provoking thriller
29 July 2004 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

A superb Irish thriller about a disturbed young man who kidnaps a successful business man and terrorizes him in a cellar in revenge for what he did to him when they were children 18 years earlier. He basically tortures the school bully which in itself is a very satisfying concept. This is made more interesting as the school bully has grown up to be a wealthy celebrity nightclub owner with his face in countless magazines and the clever kid he bulled has grown up to be a mentally disturbed social misfit who believes the bullying he endured as a child had led to his sad failed life as an adult. If revenge is best served cold, in this story its served straight from the freezer.

Though only 40 minutes long, this is excellent stuff throughout and the action never flags. The drama intensifies all the way to a haunting and very clever ending. In my books, it stands out as one of the best Irish films ever made.
