Storyline

Notorious Hollywood bad boy Darek Playto is captured by a mysterious Jailer while scouting a decrepit, abandoned prison for an upcoming film. Playto is a volatile visionary whose controversial reputation has earned him more than his fair share of enemies in the entertainment industry. In preparation for his upcoming feature film - a violent prison drama - Playto sets out to find the perfect surroundings in which to tell his brutal tale. Upon discovering a dilapidated prison that was once a notorious house of pain, it appears that Playto has found just such a location. But Playto isn't alone in this crumbling penitentiary, and upon being captured by the Jailer the director's only hope for escape is to answer a series of increasingly intimate questions concerning his art and his life.

A decent actor in a good movie
4 January 2008 | by eminembugzSee all my reviews

I found this movie to be fairly good, due to the fact that it has one of my favorite actors in it, and had a fairly good plot with an unusual twist. I think it was more of a mystery movie then a horror, because it was leaving me wondering exactly "Why is this person doing this?" without any hint in the beginning of the movie of what exactly was going on. The actors did a good job, but you WILL need to sit through the whole movie to get a full understanding of what the whole point of being held prisoner is all about. To make a long story short, I am glad I got to see this movie because it was a little different then all the other horror movies recently released. If you like mystery/horror type movies, this is the one for you.
