Steel Trap at face value may seem like an intriguing thriller, yet itís actually a preposterous, badly written, highly implausible gore flick.
The premise sees a group of despicable media types at a new yearís eve party in a high-rise office building, invited to a secret secondary party on another floor. Once the guests arrive, they soon discover that they are trapped and their host is out for blood.
The film is aesthetically pleasing, has some good gore sequences and keeps you guessing as to who the masked killer is until the end, but itís the ending that ruins the proceedings. This is just another niggling aspect of the silly script, which is akin to that of an Uwe Boll film with foreign screenwriters trying to construct American phrases for a largely British cast, which makes both the dialogue and delivery cringe worthy.
Steel Trap isnít the worst film Iíve ever seen but itís incredibly cheesy.
