Not horrible. Not wonderful. Somewhere in between

"Open Up" is about a young woman named Nell (KateLynn E. Newberry) who wakes up in a strange room with no explanation as to why she is there nor recollection as to how she got there. As she works out trying to escape, she hears another captive, Travis (Lanny Joon), and builds a plan to get them both out.

First, the plus: Great cinematography! The camera work is top-notch, and the special effects (of which are few, but impressive for the budget) are worked in nicely.

For the negative: Nell's character is unconvincing throughout the entire film. There doesn't seem to be much emotion or suspense, which leaves much to be desired. The ending has a nice twist, and it does wrap up the plot fairly soundly, but after the reveal, it seems rushed.

Might be worth a once over, as this troupe has been done before, but it retains a certain unique aspect. Don't expect too much, however.

Isolate

Warning: Spoilers
Also known as O9en Up, this was directed by Tyler Lee Allen and written by Michael Ferree. It's all about Nell (KateLynn E. Newberry), who has just woken up trapped inside of a room with no memory of who she is or even how she got there.

There's also a man next door to Nell in the same situation. While she doesn't trust him, their conversations lead ot her realizing not only who but what she is.

Also featuring Lanny Joon and David Solomon Abrams, this film is a claustrophobic one, keeping its characters confined for most of the movie. The footage outside the prison looks great as does the cell scenes, which says to me this team got the most out of its budget and delivered a movie that looks way better than what they spent.

Complete and Utter Waste of Time!

98% of this entire movie is set in one completely bare room with one "actress" and the voice of a guy in "another room". I use the word actress hesitantly, because that girl could not act her way out of a paper bag. Nobody in real life reacts the way that she does to situations.

The whole movie was as boring as watching grass grow. I mean, unless you are the kind of person who likes sitting down and watching two people talk about nothing for an hour and a half... The last ten minutes or so have a LITTLE action - as in something happens - but not much. The ending really does not tie in with the rest of the movie unless you do some interesting mental gymnastics.

I won't give away any spoilers but I will tell you that there is an opening scene that is meant to lead you down one trail... don't fall for it.

Tl:dr; DON'T BOTHER!

Enough said. Horrible boring couldn't last 10 minutes before trying to google what highschool chump got daddy's money to make a play film. Amateur hour. No story. Annoying characters. More enjoyable to watch paint dry.
