There has been much positive word about this dark thriller from the festival circuit of late, picking up the Audience Award for Best Film at Dead By Dawn and also a best actress gong at the recent Fantasia Festival along the way.
Now we've got a chance to see the official trailer of this film, that has been described as a cross between Funny Games and Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. Released by Capri Film, the Canadian thriller was directed by Paul Fox and stars Kate Greenhouse, Aidan Devine and Gordon Currie.
Warning: This film will tear your heart out. Dr. Samantha Goodman is a psychiatrist in her late thirties, dealing with what could politely be described as a life-altering situation. Hoping to get her mind together, she decides to spend the weekend at a winter cottage with her husband and sister.
All chances of healing are shattered when a brutal sex offender and former patient of Dr. Goodman’s arrives to take the group hostage in the center of oblivion. He is a hypodermic needle dripping with controlled hate, and together with his protégé, he will force the family to partake in a cruel series of "games." Games designed to punish… and reveal."
30th May 04 When the guests do arrive, they have an amusing habit of dying. This is obviously bad for business and so, with family honour in jeopardy they take quite quickly to hiding the bodies, usually accompanied by some big musical number.
