Goofs

Superglue (i.e. cyanoacrylate glue, CA glue) is a kind of glue that does not actually "dry". This kind of glue sets through a chemical reaction when exposed to moisture. And in presence of sufficient moisture it sets very quickly. This is the reason it can instantly bond human skin, or varoious porous moisture-containing materials (e.g. wood). This is also the principle on which various CA "glue accelerators" are based. However, this glue can maintain its liquid state for a very long time when exposed to fairly dry air. A drop of CA glue will sit in the open for hours and hours without setting, since it pulls very little moisture from surrounding air. It is incorrect to claim that superglue applied to a gun would've dried quickly. Quite the opposite, the movie depiction of CA glue's behavior is very accurate: it remains liquid on an exposed metal surface, but cures instantly when comes in contact with human skin. See more »

Simple but its all in the delivery

In this mix between Silence of the Lambs and Creep Show a rookie cop has to escape a serial killer whilst calling on the stories he was told during a poker night hosted by experienced police.

The stories are played out in flash back, as are some of the serial killer's.

The actual plot of the film isn't that spectacular and some of the cop stories amount to little less than a routine arrest. But they are told extremely well with plenty of colour just the right blend of drama and quirkiness.

The punishments the killer dishes out make you wince but were very subtly handled.

Elements of darkness are expertly counter balanced with lighter scenes and themes. Even the abstract way a group of paedophiles are depicted is surreal yet sinister.

I found this to be a very enjoyable watch, not very many bells and whistles but if you like character acting and suspense you will love this..
