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

The Janitor: They are as all men, made or unmade by themselves, creators of their own destiny. And just as like is drawn to like, they attract not what they want, but that which they are. Those responsible, and those who fall victim tonight are one and the same. They are all sinners.

I saw this one today at the premiere and was pleasantly surprised by it. Mr. Ecklund definitely deserved the award he won for his part in this one and the directing was great to take advantage of the actors individual spirits and talents.

If you have the chance to see this one at a theatre near you go for it, there are enough moments to keep you paying attention and wondering what's going to happen next.

I definitely look forward to seeing more from this talented cast and director and would definitely like to see more even about these characters and where the may go from the events in this film as well. Well done.

If you can see it, go see it, plus it's shot local to Vancouver which is a plus for sure. You can see what places you know...
