Ex-jailbirds Eddie and Paul are on parole and working in a New York diner. Their lives are a dead end. That is, until English lawyer Katherine Rookwood walks into the diner with an offer they can't refuse.
As with many of the reviewers I caught this at the Frightfest festival
This London Gothic chiller is loaded with a huge degree of suspense and intrigue. The tension is felt throughout the film, amplified by the exquisite cinematography and lush classical score.
David Soul, the man who was Hutch, dominated the screen with his magnetic presence, anytime he is on, you simply have to watch him. Nick Moran holds his own, delivering a truly intelligent acting piece to his portfolio. And the always steadfast Ralph brown acts the part with ease.
I have to say the ending completely blind sided me, the film is littered with a great deal of clues that deserves a second viewing. i shall be buying my ticket to check what i missed the first time.
