The Devil (with a proper British accent) holds a bunch of people hostage in a infamous abandoned old house.

Among them are a married couple who got stranded there because their car broke down. The other four (or five?) are hikers who were camping out at the old house before said couple showed up. They get cozy and the hikers tell the couple stories of evil doings in the house years ago and how it's a regular pilgrimage for them. Enter the Devil shortly thereafter, Britishing all over the place, telling them they can't leave and that he wants to play a game. They have to choose which of them is to be tortured and killed first.

What can I say? --Low budget, using the tried and true 7 or 8 people you've never heard of out in some remote or secluded area. In this case, a house. Very graphic, gory violence. Acting at, or slightly above porno. What's that you say? --You're innocent? --Never seen a porno movie? --I don't believe you! --But let me put it this way: If you randomly picked out someone off the street, their performance would be as good if not better. But to be fair, and not use a broad brush, I'll except the guy who plays the Devil. He seems to have some experience.

The movie had "some" merit for me (I gave it 3 stars, didn't I?) because I found the situation the people were placed in an intriguing psychological one though this aspect unfortunately was not explored in any real depth and took a back seat to the violence which I thought was exploitive, over-the-top, and unnecessary. The psychological angle, the real dilemma of people leveraged by someone (if not the Devil) to choose another human being for torture and death, intelligently explored, could have yielded a very tense, nail-biting, on-the-edge-of-your-seat film. My loss, I guess. This movie is what it is. It's not pretending to be anything else.

Finally: While it has some merit, as I've explained, I don't believe this is a movie one rushes to see. Rather, you should just let it come to you. For example, you could wait until one day a friend or relative buys the DVD and invite you over. Or, for a day when you're not thinking straight and buy it yourself. Love, Boloxxxi.
