Plot Summary:
"Sara Novak is an introverted college student with a few skeletons in her closet. Shying away from classmates, she prefers to spend time with Vern, an older comic store owner who shares her passion for mind games and riddles. But when the riddles she solves lead to the deaths of those around her, she realizes the riddles are more than a simple game."

The hat trick in this weeks bunch of new releases has to be this dark psychological horror / thriller that stars the excellent Carly Pope as Sara Novak, a Philosophy student who loves to spend her spare time solving puzzles with her comic book store owner friend Vern.

It soon becomes apparent that Sara has been playing a game and now she and Vern are being encouraged (seperately) to play a dangerous game with potentially fatal consequences.

I really enjoyed this film, which comes to us courtesy of the wonderful Lions Gate Films.

The Director creates a stylishly eerie yet realistic world for his characters to work in keeping the audience engaged through voyeuristic enigma.

The cast are excellent (it's a shame about Ian McShane's dodgy accent though) and really help to propel the story forward, especially Brendan Fehr who makes the most of his intriguing supporting part.

The story is wonderfully written and beautifully acted and the ending is greatly ambiguous.The only points that prevent me from giving it a higher rating are the lack of closure and the underuse of certain characters and elements.

OVERALL SUMMARY
A great film that hopefully won't go unoticed.
