Storyline

In this harrowing thriller-dark comedy hybrid, six friends are called together under the guise of an emergency, only to find themselves at the center of an elaborate scheme concocted by a mysterious mastermind who threatens to kill them if they do not obey his instructions. Confined in an apartment by the threat of violence, the group quickly realizes that their captor knows all of their darkest secrets -- secrets they've had to keep from each other... until now. When an attempt to flee the apartment is thwarted by a knife-wielding maniac, the psychological tension mixes violently with this physical threat and the tightly-knit fabric of their relationship begins to fray.

Too bad this isn't a standard
2 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What I mean is shoestring budget films like this shot in surely a week or two with mostly unskilled crew and actors but ultimately it's a decent film the held my attention decently through most of the runtime.

The acting is pretty bad to average off and on. The story is somewhat "oh not not another one of these low budget slasher movies" only to remain more an adult scoobydoo level. Finally the twists and turns bring you to the conclusion and while I think it could have been done better, they had a good overall idea and managed to do a decent job start, middle and finish.

It's too bad there isn't a small production studio putting out these simple but entertaining movies on a regular basis rather than everyone trying to start here and build their way to 40 million dollar movies in 5 or 10 years.

Filmmakers are too focused on their movies absolutely consuming viewers one after another and we've reached this despicable society where movies now dictate who everyone wants to be and then can only pretend to be. If more of what was available was just simple, low budget and with the single goal to entertain it just might do some good.
