Storyline

Small-town crook Cody (Mike Dwyer, "Sandbar") was at the end of his rope when a mysterious stranger offered him the chance of his life. There was just one catch - in this game he would have to wager everything, including his life. Cody finds himself trapped amongst a band of outsiders and misfits - all fighting for their lives and a slice of the American dream. Fueled by a horde of masked sadists, Cody and the others will win a fortune or die a brutal death. Set against the grim backdrop of a hard-bitten Midwestern town, "Union Furnace" captures the desperation and the resilient optimism of the Rustbelt. An eclectic cast of supporting characters, including genre favorite Keith David ("The Thing", "They Live") lead the audience on a roller coaster ride of gallows humor, camaraderie, betrayal, sacrifice - and terror, in director Nicholas Bushman's electrifying thriller. Written by Danny "Dice" Butler

Decent
23 August 2015 | by Red_IdentitySee all my reviews

I definitely like the premise for this. It's not totally clichéd and what's usually expected, certainly not for an independent horror film. However, it does play with some conventions we've seen before even if it does it in a new light. I can see others liking this more than me. Something about it kept me at a distance in terms of enjoyment. Definitely nothing that sticks out as being bad, but just thoroughly average maybe. The acting is fine, and the editing certainly does things to just make it all the more confounding and disorienting just like how the characters feel. Not sure ow watched this will be but I could see it gaining some sort of following, whenever that would be.
