Our Score
Parking valet and petty thief Robert Sheehan gets more than he bargained for after breaking into the luxury home of short-tempered millionaire David Tennant and discovering a woman held captive in chains. While the terrified burglar struggles to convince police and FBI agents of his story, the methodical Tennant sets about destroying the lives of the young man's friends and family, before exacting a final, brutal punishment. Director Dean Devlin aims for Hitchcock-like suspense (and here Tennant bears more than a passing physical resemblance to Anthony Perkins in Psycho), but the ludicrous, hole-infested plot elicits more groans and misplaced laughter than the requisite chills. Sheehan is such a hammy irritant that viewers may find themselves rooting for an even swifter comeuppance, although Tennant's against-type performance offers a neat line in cold, black-hearted menace.

Summary

Two criminal valets get more than they bargained for when they break into the home of rich sadist Cale Erendreich, and find a woman being held captive. Thriller, starring David Tennant, Robert Sheehan and Kerry Condon.
