Storyline

A man wakes up in a pit of dead bodies with no memory of who he is or how he got there. Fleeing the scene, he breaks into a nearby house and is met at gunpoint by a group of terrified strangers, all suffering from memory loss. Suspicion gives way to violence as the group starts to piece together clues about their identities, but when they uncover a threat that's more vicious - and hungry - than each other, they are forced to figure out what brought them all together - before it's too late.

Made me realize I haven't seen a really good movie in a long time
6 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yeah, I'm going to try and say as little as possible about the plot. Actually, nothing about the plot would be best. Some people spend the entire time watching a movie like this trying to "figure it out" or whatever. Which is fine and all but disrespects the movie to a degree. I'm not one of those people but even if I were, I seriously doubt it would help much.

The story has quite a bit of mystery to it. You don't really know much more than the characters for most of the run time, but it's a good thing. It isn't frustrating/mysterious like David Lynch or something, and there is a pay off in the third act. I'm not a particularly dumb man but a couple things I was still vague on at the end, but I prefer that to being beaten over the head w/explanations or, god forbid, a narrator.

I suppose it's more of a 7-8 but I'm giving it 9 for originality (more impressive considering it's somewhat unoriginal setup and seemingly going into an extremely overdone genre). Yeah, that won't make much sense until you watch it. Neither will this smooth segue: I don't like Vin Diesel at all (See! what?) but I still give Pitch Black a decent score for similar reasoning. That was an original sci-fi story and deserved props (despite it's Mr. Potato Head leading man/meatsicle). Same w/Open Grave. I didn't know what was going to happen. I didn't feel screwed when I found out. It wasn't perfect, but also in a good way (as in too perfect becomes fake/meaningless whereas a blemish or two makes it all the better for being identifiable). And, though it's not an ending that makes you want to jump around riding ponies over rainbows, I felt good at the end. Remembered thinking, "thanks, I needed that" (God knows why I think these things).

Most of the actors are unknown to me, w/the exception of Copley, but all did a great job. I'm digging that he's primarily becoming a sci-fi(ish) actor. Hasn't been many of those in a long time. When I finished Europa Report I had an unsatisfied, I-only-got-to-eat-half-a-sandwich-and-I'm- still-hungry kind of feeling. It was okay (I guess; opinions and all) but this is better. I'm thinking the acting was good because the parts were good. Big famous celebrities can carry movies and parts that are really empty and uninspiring just cuz we want to see them. I think Open Grave could be recast (not that it needs it) and be just as good. It's a good story, they filmed it good, etc.

Watch it. Do it, now. Just put the kids out back to graze and feed em later. Watch it. Aaarrrggghhhh....!!!!
