Unexpectedly above average Cheating Wife thriller
8 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is actually a much better film than I expected and though I only scored it 6 from 10 in the vote ratings, this is definitely above average and compares favourably to 'Buried" from 2011. A similar film about a victim being buried in a coffin.

May I say that although two people are kept in a coffin, the story is not what you may think it is - about anybody being buried below the ground, though of course they could easily be, given the nature of the storyline.

The acting is not great, agreed, but it does not need to be. the script is good enough to carry the story and keeps us gripped until the excellent twist at the end.

The main theme of the story is a cheating wife (and to some extent a cheating husband). There are many unrealistic elements to the film and I might have chosen to call the movie 'Trick" for example.

If it did remind me of another film which does not give the plot away in any way, it is the abuse of the clown in "Vulgar" from a few years ago.

Pay $16 to watch this in a cinema? Why would you? It should be readily available on DVD and that is its intended market, I am quite sure.
