Trivia

The entire movie uses only five locations: The interrogation room, the control room, the hallway, Dr Olivia's office and the park in the epilogue. See more »

Goofs

In the final scene, the chess board is set up incorrectly. (The lower right-hand square should be white, not black). Also, as an added error in continuity, the board switches to the correct set-up later in the same scene. See more »

Quotes

Olivia: [walking up] Do you always play alone?
Fonda: [playing chess] Challenging yourself can teach you quite a bit about who you are. Plus, I always win.
[swivles the board to play the opposite side]
Olivia: [toppling the king] Or lose.

Solid low budget movie
10 March 2018 | by jhonnyphiveSee all my reviews

For a straight to dvd type movie, this is actually pretty good. Most of the acting is up to par and the special effects were better than a lot of indie movies I've seen. My biggest issue is the movie starts off slow, but eventually it picks up and the ending made it worth watching. Other than that, this was better than I expected from something so low budget.
