In a trashy convenience store, the owner Steve, his clients, phone sex worker Mona, and the whore Jess, his employee Donny Donut and his junky nephew Jimmy discuss with the carrier Morty what they would do with the serial-killer if they caught him. Out of the blue, they are attacked by a masked killer during a night of terror. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Entertaining!
28 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you like thrillers/slasher films, you'll probably enjoy Cornered! Set in a single location, a liquor store besieged by a notorious serial killer, the film follows several employees as they play poker after hours. Among the characters is a drunk, a hallucinating drug addict, a phone sex worker, a fat guy who can't resist donuts, and a hooker. The movie does a lot of character exploration, but still manages to kill them off in succession, including some cool scenes in which they're killed in the way that they said they wanted to kill the killer. Steve Guttenberg is back, and I couldn't be happier to see him in something like this, a completely different film that we don't often see him do. The film is slow to build suspense but it keeps it going steadily until the end. I'm a big fan of masked killers, and I wish we saw more of this main character, but by no means was he completely absent. The ending suggests a sequel, and I hope we get to see one that's as entertaining as this original.
