Trivia

The filming was so secluded, intense, and laborious that the last 20 minutes were shot with only the director and three cast members present. When off-screen the cast operated the boom mic and assisted with the camera work. See more »

Smart indie film
14 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I discovered this movie while building the schedule for my new film festival. Now called Maelstrom Festival of Horror and the Fantastic.

It was so well received at the screening that I am bringing it back for Crypticon Seattle. It will play at 11:00pm Friday night the 23rd of May.

This is a film worth checking out. If you spend any time looking at small indie films you will appreciate "Sympathy". Powerful and compelling find it and watch it.

People stuck in a room after a heist. What are they doing in the hotel room and who is really calling the shots?
