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

Goofs

Having graduating levels of prize money is pointless because he can never opt out of the game at any level and claim a lesser prize - either he wins or loses. If he fails any level or opts out at any time he "loses any prize money won up to that point", so having increasing tiers of prize money is irrelevant. See more »

A Nice Surprise
26 July 2014 | by (macthemovieguy.com) – See all my reviews

I think this movie could have done well in theatres if just given even a moderate push. It's a smart horror movie. I know we are so used to getting bombarded with ghost story horror movies, like The Conjuring, Insidious, and Sinister (which are all basically the same movie), that something like 13 Sins couldn't possibly stand out. Right? It's like a horror movie version of The Game, or a horror version of Series 7. Not quite The Running Man. In this version, a man (Webber) is told that he can potentially win 6 million dollars. Of course, he's down on his luck, which is why he was chosen. He's also planning a wedding to his girlfriend (Wesley), and needs to take care of his mentally ill brother (Graye), and potentially his sick father (Bower). So a lot is at stake.

He has to complete 13 tasks. The first is easy. Kill a fly. But the stakes are upped with each new task, and soon he finds himself doing things he never thought possible. What can a man convince himself to do to provide for his family? 13 Sins is an interesting take on something that's already been done before. It does enough different to feel fresh, and not only do you want to know how it ends, you'll be surprised by how it turns out. There's a great twist at the end, and it makes the movie so much better.

Webber is a great lead, and underused in Hollywood. Hopefully more people will see him in this so he can get higher profile roles. It's also a nice departure for Wesley, who usually has to kick ass as Tara in True Blood. It's nice to see her play the sweet girlfriend for once.

It's on Netflix, and it's very much worth a watch. Probably one of the best surprises I've had watching a random film on Netflix that I knew nothing about.
