Two worlds collide in this psychological thriller that will make you question your trust in mankind. Written by Production Staff

Trivia

According to Michael Biehn, the person who inspired him to direct was Robert Rodriguez. While shooting Planet Terror (2007), Rodriguez told Biehn that he should've made a grindhouse movie himself. Biehn wasn't very sure about it, but promised himself he'd have done it one day. A few years later, while in Canada working on Xavier Gens' The Divide (2011), Biehn saw a guy in a restaurant reading Robert Rodriguez's book "Rebel Without a Crew"; he remembered his promise and put things in motion to make this movie.

Victim=Viewer?
19 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

I'm not a big fan of movies like this one, but it's pretty solid for what it represents. It is a surprise that Michael Biehn would do something like this, but he's open about this movie. It's not supposed to be taken seriously in any way. I get it that people were not pleased by it, but I'd hope some reviews wouldn't be so personal. I don't think Jennifer Blanc does a good job in this, but insulting her with foul language is really not a good way to express that.

The movie itself is pretty predictable, has some sex, some violence in it and Michael Biehn does also play in his own movie. This was shot quick and as gritty as possible. It's not for film purists and it won't satisfy gore hounds either (most of them anyway). But while ill-advised flashbacks do not add anything to the story, you're wasting your time being angry at a movie, that never pretends to be anything else than it actually is. If this is the worst movie you've seen, you should call yourself lucky or watch more movies. In any way, this curiosity is worth a look, but don't bother watching more than 5-10 minutes, if you feel that it doesn't work for you.
