Storyline

An ice cold tale of misguided ambition and savage revenge. Set in the bowels of an iconic derelict Los Angeles high-rise, we follow Lauren and her real-estate investing fiancé as they discover first hand what happens when a madman leads not with emotion, but rather chilling rationality. The Man in question brings a heaping helping of sanity and jet-black humor to the crazy table. The result is a wonderfully off-kilter horror/thriller that never goes where we expect, but rather draws the audience deeper into a surprising world that has dark corners even in the brightest rooms.

Cool Film
14 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

This was a Great film, But then anything that has Michael Madsen usually is. I just got this on DVD, as I buy every Madsen film that is released.

Its very much your typical revenge story taken to a more sinister blood spraying level. Madsens character of the absolute Phycho takes me back to his Reservoir Dogs days. The movie has its moment, Rachel Hunters performance could have used a bit more work, accent was slipping in and out from American to Kiwi. Loved the level of gore, The fact its all filmed in one location makes it an easy watch and keeps your attention. Michael Madsen continues to impress me with his awesome roles, I'll never stop admiring his work.

All and all, not a bad watch
