Storyline

Locked in a dark basement, Laura, a psychiatrist in her early thirties, contemplates in horror a video where a man confesses to be a serial killer. His name is Ramon, an apparently normal man in his forties, who seems to be quite harmless. Gagged and bound to a chair, Laura realises that it's the same person who kidnapped her and who is now pacing in the shadows. Ramon continues to speak as he turns off the television. He walks over to her, takes off the gag and challenges Laura to play the "Word Game". If she wins, she gets to go free, but if she loses, he'll poke out her eye. Laura is terrified, but reluctantly accepts. The game begins. Laura makes a mistake. Ramon menacingly moves towards her. Laura's screams are useless. Written by Niz

Wow!
20 March 2014 | by (Russia) – See all my reviews

A very interesting film, even gripping I would say. Reading the synopsis, you may find yourself thinking that it's a usual psycho-maniac horror crap with no claims to originality, but let me assure you that you are mistaken. It's a pure mind-blowing thriller which will keep guessing what's going to happen and what it's all about till the most unpredictable and stunning ending. I feel no need to write anything more, because I don't want to ruin you the whole joy by saying how surprised I was every time something incredible happened in this movie, I mean writing spoilers like 'when he said that…, I couldn't believe my ears' or 'when she turned out to be his…' oh, man. I nearly did it! So, well, that's it. Find this film somewhere and watch it immediately, it's a must see one!
