Confident college girl Eva (Carolien Spoor) is looking at apartments to rent when she finds the perfect place in a block near the university where she studies. Dividing her time between study to become an actress and a vet, the low rent flat is perfect for her and the cute neighbor opposite more than makes up for the creepy landlord and the spying old man that she spots through the window. However, her life takes an awful turn when she awakens in a dungeon cell chained to a bed with a camera watching her every move. She is a prisoner and her captor has a dark and disturbing plan for her that she may not survive.

easy to follow Netherhorror
30 May 2012 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

Now and then out of the Netherlands comes a horror. They are called Netherhorror and I surely would add this one on that list. The story is easy to follow and even as it doesn't have gore or messy situations it still delivers.

It starts with a young boy following a teenage girl. The girl promises that he may kiss her if he dares to be locked in a mortuary. He agrees, once locked up the girls ran away. We move further a few years with nothing explained. It's up to the viewer to solve the case. If you are a bit cleaver it is easy to follow. Even as we don't go too deep into the characters still you want to know what is going on.

The acting was okay, only Dragan Bakema as Alex Purvis wasn't convincing all the time. All the thespians are known for people living in the Netherlands, but aren't big names. Somehow it reminded me of Caged (2011), another Netherhorror.

Gore 1/5 Nudity 1/5 Effects 2/5 Story 3/5 Comedy 0/5
