Storyline

Vancouver Homicide Detective Porhowski likes her job, but her father would rather she do something less dangerous, like work for him in his latest project, specifically overseeing the renovation and ultimately managing the seniors care facility he has just purchased. One day, a man, who she later learns is drug dealer Ryan James, walks into the police station, and reports to her a fantastical kidnapping and murder. He states that he and four other men unknown to him were kidnapped, and taken to an underground parking garage where they were forced by a "voice" to play games against each other for their lives. The five were chosen for the sins they have committed. The loser of each game is shown a film of his sin before he is killed by a supernatural force. James was able to escape with the help of the garage's janitor, a man calling himself Joe Balberith. Porhowski dismisses his story, but her partner, Detective Nolan, and Police Constable Banks follow up on some leads regardless. But ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

The bathroom mirror Michael Eklund cracked with his forehead in the fight scene with Sarah-Jane Redmond was real. Breaking it was not planned. The actors remained in character and continued with their performance, allowing the take to be used in the film. See more »

Quotes

The Janitor: They are as all men, made or unmade by themselves, creators of their own destiny. And just as like is drawn to like, they attract not what they want, but that which they are. Those responsible, and those who fall victim tonight are one and the same. They are all sinners.

Great performances by a remarkably talented cast will tend to make a good script great. Happens every time. Written and directed by Damon Vignale, "The Entrance" showcases the importance a director should place on getting the most from his cast. In this case, Mr. Vignale started with great talent and managed to get, in my mind, award-winning performances from them. They, in turn, took the script and and ran with it very effectively. From beginning to end the pace of this film is consistent in its flow. The audience is drawn into the bizarre set of circumstances which befall a young female detective after interviewing a visibly upset felon. She embarks on a journey which ultlimately challenges her own humanity while forced to revisit a crime she was victim to in her childhood. Unfortunately, much of the subject matter of the film precludes it's being something for your kids to watch. Nevertheless, The Entrance should be on everyone's list of "should see's". A great piece.
