Verdict: A very tense low budget thriller with plenty of twists and turns

Story: Well where do I start, this is one film I switched on just to kill some time and it ended up pulling me in to see what happens. Mixing elements of two very different films Law Abiding Citizen and Exam to create a revenge film with a twist on wanting the truth to be exposed at any means. The tension builds and you are left waiting for the next twist on the real event unfolds right up to the final reveal. (9/10)

 

Actor Review: Nicholas Hope – Reddmann left to be guilty, goes through a lot in jail before his escape, pushes the characters to the limit to clear his name. Great performance creating a haunting character who will keep his word, a dominate screen presences throughout. Star Performance Award, Scene Stealer Award. Scariest Character Award (9/10)

Actor Review: Kelly Paterniti – A video stripper who wants to work in an office but keeps getting rejected. Kidnapped for being a witness in the trial and seems to be the only one who tries to escape as well as being the only person that sees a clear piece of evidence that lawyers and police seem to miss. Good performance puts up a great fight and shows great innocent presence in a room where everyone seems to have a secret. Unluckiest Character Award (8/10)

Director Review: Daniel Krige – With only a few small budget films to his name this film shows he knows how to create some great scenes in a thriller that has plenty of surprises. (8/10)

Horror: Uses some Saw like tactics in some of the kills but relies on thrills rather than scares. (7/10)

Thriller: Once you know what is going on you will be sat at the edge of your seat throughout. (9/10)

Special Effects: Tom Savini one of the best if not the best special effects man in the business today and he shows why here with some excellent effects. (10/10)

Believability: A boss snaps and traps employees well that bit has happened before but the extreme Reddmann goes aren’t. (2/10)

Chances of Tears: No (0/10)

Settings: The setting fits the film perfect creating a tight atmospheric feeling throughout. (9/10)

Suggestion: I would be suggesting this as I always like these types of films showing that you don’t need silly money to create a great atmosphere in a film nor do you need to have glorified violent deaths. The film could also appeal to other people who like high tension in films. (Horror Fans Watch)

 

Best Part: I enjoyed the final scene the best tops off the quality in the film

Kill Of The Film: Sheena O’Leary very bloody great use of special effects

Funniest Scene: The final scene.

Oscar Chances: No

Chances of Sequel: Open to one

Similar Too: Exam, Panic Button

 

Overall: Hidden gem in horror thriller films
