Storyline

Vancouver Homicide Detective Porhowski likes her job, but her father would rather she do something less dangerous, like work for him in his latest project, specifically overseeing the renovation and ultimately managing the seniors care facility he has just purchased. One day, a man, who she later learns is drug dealer Ryan James, walks into the police station, and reports to her a fantastical kidnapping and murder. He states that he and four other men unknown to him were kidnapped, and taken to an underground parking garage where they were forced by a "voice" to play games against each other for their lives. The five were chosen for the sins they have committed. The loser of each game is shown a film of his sin before he is killed by a supernatural force. James was able to escape with the help of the garage's janitor, a man calling himself Joe Balberith. Porhowski dismisses his story, but her partner, Detective Nolan, and Police Constable Banks follow up on some leads regardless. But ... Written by Huggo

Was Lack of Budget to Complete the Movie?
24 June 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Detective Porhowski (Sarah-Jane Redmond) has dinner with her father and he invites her to administrate a clinic that he has just purchased since he is worried with the dangerousness of her profession.

Porhowski returns to the police department and she is informed that a man called Ryan James (Michael Eklund) wants to talk to her. He tells an unbelievable story that he has been abducted and forced to play games against four other men, selected for their sins, in a parking garage. In the end of the game, the sin committed by the loser is projected and he is killed by a supernatural forces.

Ryan has succeeded to flee with the support of the janitor Joe Balberith (Ron Sauvé). Porhowski does not give credit to his story and finds that Ryan is a drug dealer. When she returns to talk to him, she finds that he has escaped from the interrogation room. Detective Porhowski drives back home but she is kidnapped by Ryan that was hidden on the back seat of her car. He tells that made a deal with the supernatural force that agreed to trade him for Detective Porhowski. What is her dark secret from the past?

"The Entrance" is an intriguing low-budget horror movie with an original story. Unfortunately the movie does not have end and wastes a great story. Was it lack of budget to complete the movie? Or does the director and writer Damon Vignale believe that he has made a movie with open end? My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): 'Punidos pelo Demônio" ("Punished by the Devil")
