At four o’clock in the afternoon on Oct 17th, 2015, Crystal Connor, climbed into her sleeping bag on the couch with a large plate of nachos and picked up her remote. For the next hour and a half her poor little dog and neighbors were subjected to screaming, crying, and expletive outburst…

Plotline: Six captive office workers are literally chained to their desks by a demented, escaped serial killer; former regional manager Thomas Reddmann (Redd). He assigns his ‘human resources’ the impossible task of proving his innocence or suffering gruesome consequences.
Who would like it: Gorehounds, fans of isolated/trapped environments, people who like mysteries and dark comedy.
Horror Level: 3
High Points: With everyone waking up in a locked room and chained to their desk you feel like you’re getting ready to watch a knock off movie from the Saw franchise and though it borrows some elements from those movies, that Déjà vu feeling that you’ve seen this before quickly changes which allows this movie a space of its own.
Like in Saw the demented boss Thomas Reddman believes the staff before him as done this to themselves and as the movie unfolds itself you begin to agree that they did. Mr. Reddman was committed of a crime and sentenced to death and every single person assembled played a role in conviction.
Mr. Reddman’s complain is if everyone had simply done their jobs he would have never been convicted in the 1st place.
Complaints: I’m not a gore hound and unless it is absolutely necessary it just annoys me. It’s a dark comedy but some of the lines fall flat and end up sounding cheesy and corny but whatya gonna do. There are some ‘staff members’ who are far more culpable than the others so I thought it wasn’t fair that everyone received the same level of corrective actions…lol
Overall: Despite my complaints this was really a fun, smart and at times funny movie and the comedic elements makes this a safe one to watch with your friends who like the lighter side of horror.
Stars: 4 Stars
Where I watched it: Netflix
Washington State native Crystal Connor has been terrorizing readers since before Jr. high School and loves anything to do with monsters, bad guys, rogue scientific experiments, jewelry, sky-high high heel shoes & unreasonably priced hang bags. She is also considering changing her professional title to ‘dramatization specialist’ because it’s so much more theatrical than being just a mere drama queen. Crystal’s latest projects can be found both on her blog and Facebook fan page at:
