Storyline

Elliot Brindle is a bright, meek salesman, drowning in debt - and desperate as he's about to marry the love of his life. Upon receiving a phone call informing him that he's on a hidden camera game show where he must execute 13 tasks to receive a sum total cash prize of $6.2M, Elliot dismissively follows through with his first two instructions: swat the fly that is currently bothering him, then eat the fly. With thousands of dollars suddenly appearing in his bank account, Elliot remains skeptical, though comforted by the knowledge that he can stop playing at anytime if only to lose every penny that he's won. Trapped into the horrors manipulated by unseen spectators, Elliot's need to complete the game escalates as the tasks grow more extreme, to a devastating point of no return. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Prof. Edgar Solomon: A bear taking a dump asked a rabbit, "Does shit stick to your fur as a habit?" "Of course not," said the hare, "It's really quite rare," so the bear wiped his ass with the rabbit. There once was a lady named Dot who lived off of pig shit and snot. When she ran out of these, she ate the green cheese... that she grew on the sides... of her twat.

Watered-down but effective hybrid
16 April 2014 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

'The Box, 2009', meets 'Saw, 2004', meets 'Eagle Eye, 2008'. Combine the plot, premise and mood of those three movies and you'll know precisely what to expect from this taut, energetic thriller/mystery. It most resembles "The Box" but focuses more on action than psychological thrills. It most certainly doesn't qualify as a horror.

It was a pleasure to see Rutina Wesley (HBO's True Blood) on the big screen, and Ron Perlman is always a delight. All of the performances delivered were good, some more-so than others. A comprehensible script along with some talented directing made it all come together nicely.

If you're looking for a film to keep you glued to the edge of your seat, this one misses the mark, just barely. If you're looking for a film that will have your mind reeling, it also just misses the mark. As an effective genre hybrid it walks the line and makes for a palatable, enjoyable, viewing experience for a wider audience set. It's plain movie fun that doesn't cater to idiotic 'tweens.

How far would you go to become a multi-millionaire? Can the promise of fortune turn the meek-mannered into a violent sociopath? Who is being entertained by this insidious game and how?
