Storyline

Strolling up and down a bustling outdoor flea market, a withered silver-haired man browses the tiny and humble stands, when unexpectedly, a shadowy, out-of-the-way cramped antique shop grabs his attention. In the first place, everything seems quite ordinary, but after a while, inside the gloomy, crammed with objects shop, the choosy customer will eventually dig out underneath a pile of dusty boxes, a worn-out, unobtrusive paper box of a jigsaw puzzle which bears neither a label nor a picture. Obviously, this is no ordinary item, so, anxiously and with eyes gleaming with desire, the eager, yet unaware buyer, after offering a small fortune, he will leave the shabby place ignoring the unwilling vendor's warning. Soon, as the man painstakingly puts the puzzle's pieces together one-by-one nearing its completion, somehow, reason's frail confines will be irreparably breached by sheer and undiluted man-devouring paranoia. What could the puzzle's sinister mystery be? Written by Nick Riganas

A delightfully scary piece of film making
2 July 2017 | by ghbbrown-1See all my reviews

This is visually stunning, tautly told,with a real surprise at the end. An unidentified man buys a dusty box of jigsaw pieces and takes it home despite discouragement from the man who sells it. Hours fly by. Then the final tiny piece slips into place and....A book is ALWAYS a less risky choice for an evening's entertainment. It took me a while to recollect a similar written tale. I finally hit on the horror/ghost stories of M.R. James, an early 20th century master of creepiness and odious apparitions. I used to think James' work was overwrought. Now, with THE JIGSAW in mind, I may go back to revisit.
