An interesting film.
31 March 2002 | by cmykleftySee all my reviews

Three roommates looking for another to share their apartment. They find a new roommate, who lives with them. The new person suddenly dies with a suitcase full of cash. The three roommates battle over the cash and can't trust each other. What is a lot of money between friends? If you cannot trust your friends with money, then who can you trust? Shallow Grave is the most interesting thrilling film, I ever saw. It is well worth your time to watch.
