Starting without a single clue , nine strangers face the mind-bender of a lifetime when a hooded madman locks them in a basement and announces that he will slay one of them every 10 minutes until they uncover the mysterious connection they all share. Can any of them solve the puzzle in less than 90 minutes? This horror-suspense film from director Chris Shadley stars Melissa Joan Hart, John Terry and Lucille Soong.
Rated R, 1 hr. 26 min., 2009
This is another single location shoot, but it is mixed with flashbacks as each participant is trying to recall their connection to their abductor. This one is very entertaining and will leave you guessing to the very end.
Skull Rating: 3
When Tonya (Ailsa Marshall) finds herself stranded in an unfamiliar room with 13 prisoners, and each is held hostage by an electronic collar left to agonize about what horrible fate may await. It turns out, they’re slated to die, and as the clock ticks down, the terrified strangers go toes up one by one. The catch, of course, is that one of them is the killer — but who is it?
Rated R, 1 hr. 29 min., 2007
There a few movies like this where you have a single location and we a forced to examine each character to figure out the puzzle. This one is good and I would recommend it.
Star Rating: 4
Revealing the stunning truth behind a horrific string of homicides near Santa Fe, a young girl (Ryan Simpkins), police officer (Kent Harper) and drug addict (Pell James) spill their wildly different witness accounts to FBI agents Elizabeth Anderson (Julia Ormond) and Sam Hallaway (Bill Pullman). Jennifer Chambers Lynch (Boxing Helena) directs this thriller that co-stars Michael Ironside, Cheri Oteri and French Stewart.
Rated R, 1 hr. 37 min., 2007
Found this little gem cross-referencing other horror movies. How could Bill Pullman make a bad movie? So I took a chance. This one written and directed by Jennifer Chambers Lynch (yes, David Lynch’s daughter) will keep you on the edge of your seat. While not a fast pace movie, you will find yourself hanging on every word. About mid-way through the film you will start to scratch your head. Nothing is really what it seems. You won’t have any love for the bad cops that are being interviewed by the FBI, but karma is a bitch right? Brilliant movie.
