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

No Spoon Feeding Here
7 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you are looking for a no-brainer, slasher, nudity laden horror flick

  • don't waste your time on this one.




After seeing some of the comments, I didn't expect too much - but was glad I gave it a chance.

Excellent performance by Michael Eklund as the drug dealer (look him up
  • this guy has no problem finding gigs); fantastic range in his


performance.

The cinema-photography was excellent! Good sound track. All around good production values. Good cast and acting.

I loved the mystery of it; don't expect the "expected". Very good script; nicely layered; loved the way elements unfolded. Just when I kind of thought I knew where things were going, delicious little "twisted" twists were added. I liked that I was required to pay attention, to be patient and observant. Yes, the uneasy pacing - kept me off balance; added to the tension. And, I even experienced a couple startlingly scary moments; doesn't happen much for me anymore; such a treat.

I even liked the ending - unsettling as it was.

Well worth a coffee shop chat after viewing this film - so much going on; so much left to the imagination.
