SCRIPTED FILM - 2009
Shrewd, smart, and thought-provoking, THE KILLING ROOM ultimately works because it doesn’t seem that far-fetched. Truly effective horror movies explore what we already fear.
The suspense in this film is absorbing as action after action has a probable bad result, yet the subjects go through with them out of a desperate desire to survive. Much of this is the result of the excellent directing of Jonathan Liebesman, also the director of BHM favorite Darkness Falls…an excellent film that will have you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. The suspense is painful, yet so compelling that hitting the pause button is not possible – your hand just won’t move.
