Directed by Stuart Gordon
A nurse (Mena Suvari) hits a homeless man (Stephen Rea) with her car, then, fearing repercussions, imprisons him in her garage while she figures out what to do. Horror honcho Stuart Gordon (RE-ANIMATOR) puts his Lovecraft-fixation aside to explore man's inhumanity to man (something especially relevant during an era when torture was being debated by our highest officials). The vicious and bloody third act - in which Nurse Brandi and her victim fight for survival - is a thing of true beauty. Believe it or not - it's all based on a true story.

The acting was sub par. The storyline was weak. The premise was interesting, a classic 'trapped' film. Unfortunately, it was poorly executed and the result was lacking the ability to trplace the viewers in to the mind of the victim and
I wouldn’t spend the 1.5 hrs to watch this if I were you. There are many more movies worth your time. The acting was pretty subpar. The storyline was weak. The premise was interesting, a classic ‘trapped’ film, it just wasn’t successfully executed.
How come everything is so boring to me lately!
