Storyline

Cole is a likeable regular guy. Except that ever since he witnessed a gruesome murder-suicide, things haven't been quite right. His wife left him, he is tormented by hallucinations and his career has nosedived into a blue collar job with a carpet cleaning service. Just when it seems his life has reached bottom, Cole is called out on an all-night cleaning job in an Italianate mansion far from the city. For company he has Henry, the rich, condescending homeowner who seems to take sadistic pleasure in letting Cole think he has just murdered his wife. A reddish stain on the carpet, a knife hacking into baked rabbit, a cell phone that won't stop ringing - does it add up to murder or is Cole losing his last handhold on his fragile sanity?

Bloody Fun! With an Ending Twist You'll Want To See Again
3 August 2011 | by ginatbryantSee all my reviews

I'm not usually a big fan of low-budget thrillers with all their gratuitous gore and hacky flashbacks but for its genre, I think this movie is a 10. I love its offbeat intensity. It has all the fun of a campy movie while avoiding being....well...campy. For a thriller it's remarkably gripping, sophisticated and well-acted, without taking itself too seriously. Mark Kelly's flammable character is an edgy yet cool carpet-cleaner. Oz Perkins (son of Tony) gives us impeccable poker-faced comic relief as an uptight millionaire. (Makes me want to look for them in other films.) Billy Burke is his penetrating, sensitive self. There's also a great cameo by Elliot Gould playing a psychiatrist. And there will be blood- plenty of it. But it's the story's ending that gets you. It made me want to turn around immediately and see it again! There's nothing better than walking out of a film reeling! (pun?)
