Trapped in an isolated gas station by a voracious Splinter parasite that transforms its still living victims into deadly hosts, a young couple and an escaped convict must find a way to work together to survive this primal terror.
A young woman's quest for revenge against the people who kidnapped and tormented her as a child leads her and a friend, who is also a victim of child abuse, on a terrifying journey into a living hell of depravity.
I saw THE KILLING ROOM on Showtime last night. I found it to be a very unique suspense/thriller.
Not since THE CUBE have I seen such a truly unique, original movie like the KILLING ROOM. The action and tension never lets up. Your mind is always trying to guess what's going to happen next. The characters are compelling. And, the actors' performances are incredibly strong.
The premise, which includes the CIA's secret "MK-Ultra" mind-control experiments of the '70s adds credibility. As such, I found the movie completely plausible.
The more we learn about the characters; and, their motives, the more the suspense; and, drama intensifies. It was very engaging.
