Storyline

In Los Angeles, a serial-killer with unknown identity is slaughtering clients in convenience stores. He steals the surveillance tapes and the police department offers a US$ 500,000 reward for him. 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

Trivia

The title of the movie is hidden at least twice in the film itself. (1) Near the beginning of the film, the newspaper that's magnified by the pair of reading glasses next to it has text that reads, "Chief Wilson proclaimed 'WE WON'T QUIT TILL WE HAVE THIS SICKO CORNERED!'" (2) Near the end of the film, the camera pans across some cans and boxes on a shelf. A can of corn is placed next to a quarter-turned box so that the word "corn" from the can, and "ered" from the end of text written on the box, spells out the name of the film. See more »

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.
