Storyline

It's Christmas time. Roger returns home to reconcile with his younger sister, Brooke, who he hasn't seen in almost three years. He arrives with his new fiancée, Gwen, only to find out that Brooke is nowhere to be seen. To make matters worse, he's greeted by his estranged friend, Charles, and his ex-girlfriend, Kate, who have come to meddle in the evening's festivities. Suspicious of their intentions, Roger tries to keep his volatile temper at bay while everyone waits for Brooke to get home. Brooke's alleged boyfriend, Marcus, enters the house unexpectedly and assures the group that Brooke will be there shortly. As time passes, and her whereabouts still remain unknown, the night takes a disturbing turn. Roger's unsavory past comes to light as Marcus's true intentions explode into a shocking display of violence and deception. Written by Anonymous

Marcus
4 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had a chance to see Marcus at the Appalachian Film Festival last week. I was very impressed with what the filmmakers were able to achieve on a shoestring budget. While certain parts of the story became a little claustrophobic at times, the mixed relationships of the four visitors proved to be a great combination and setup for Marcus' creepy personality to play such a disturbing and violent game with. The real payoff of the film happens in the last twenty minutes when Marcus turns frighteningly hostile towards the Christmas dinner party, leaving only the brother left alive to deal with the serial killer's bloody massacre.

The film won best narrative feature at the festival, and proves to be a great niche cult film for horror/thriller enthusiasts.
