I decided to take a chance with this film because the premise is pretty good - a woman plays a game to win $1m, enduring different things every round. I find it bizarre that the previous review said the film has no plot, sense or script - the reviewer is possibly braindead or didn't actually watch the film. The fact they rated it 1/10 is astonishing - that rating is for films like "Sharknado". PLOT The film definitely has a plot - this is mentioned in the synopsis. There's also character development throughout the film, so I'm not sure what some people are watching, because it's certainly not this film. SENSE A lot of people I know said that "Saw" was senseless and just "mindless violence", and I've heard the same said about "Hostel". This film is the same as those two films - it definitely has sense, and once you realise what's going on, it make 100% sense. If it doesn't make sense to a viewer, then I can only assume they're not paying attention. SCRIPT It's not the most original story, but it certainly has a script. I felt the pacing was just about right, and there was enough intrigue to keep you guessing what's really happening. My feeling is that this possibly would've been better as a TV episode (Outer Limits, Black Mirror, those kind of shows), as 1h40m is a little long deliver the punchline. Overall, I give the film a solid 8/10 for solid acting, a good script, and plenty of atmosphere.
