A very low budget Saw clone, 10 August 2011
Author: Red-Barracuda from Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

Six strangers awake in a strange sealed off room. A surveillance camera constantly watches them, while, via a speaker, someone relays instructions to them. They are left in no uncertain terms that only one of them will survive this ordeal.

Aquarium is a pretty decent attempt at ultra low budget film-making. It's fairly compelling and intriguing, and makes the most of its limited setting. However, it does feel as if not enough was made of this basic premise. The characters never even discuss their last memories before they arrived in this situation, while the psychological games played upon the participants are never developed enough and mostly feel quite rushed. It really feels like a short movie stretched – just – to feature length. Its too under-played, it would have been better adopting the more in-your-face approach of the film it is most mimicking, Saw.

Still, I didn't think this was a bad film, just one that could've been much better.
