SECTION Park City at Midnight
RUN TIME 80 min
Chained by her ankle and locked away in the dismal basement of a sexual predator, Eve has been missing and presumed dead for some time. Lost to her family and friends, she wastes away in isolation between horrifying visits from her vile captor, who remains unaware that Eve has been maniacally planning her escape. With a carefully placed brick, she beats him senseless as he approaches and frees herself from his grasp at the outset of the film. But too quickly, she learns there are other girls in other houses facing sinister fates of their own. Making a deal with the devil, she vows to save them all, turning her torturer into her prisoner, one who will lead her to his prey one by one. Gleefully turning the tables on traditional horror tropes with this gorgeously shot and frenetically paced psychological thriller, director J.M Cravioto crafts a chilling tale of vengeance and rage that permeates deep into the psyche and never lets go. —L.Z.
