Dir. John Langridge
John Langridge's debut feature film is a tense, psychological thriller, produced by Raiomond Mirza for Oh My! Productions from a script by Paul Chronnell. It stars Martin Compston (The Disappearance of Alice Creed), Craig Conway (Doomsday), Sean Pertwee (Dog Soldiers) and Kiersten Wareing (Fish Tank)
A jealous husband hires a corrupt detective to kidnap his wife's lover to administer some rough justice. His simple plan for revenge starts to unravell however, when the detective has a revelation of his own...
...he has kidnapped the husband's wife as well.
'With just four actors, a single setting and more twists than a bag full of pretzels, John Langridge’s grimy lo-fi debut is almost smart, taut and nasty enough to bid for the Tarantino comparisons he’s obviously after. A stagey British indie that does a lot with a little...'
Paul Bradshaw, Total Film
'John Langridge’s feature debut is a nicely taut low-key thriller that delivers a series of nicely staged twists and a few doses of violence...'
Mark Adams, Screen International
'I suppose this story could easily have been a stage play, but the film has successfully rendered it its own. Oddly enough this has been achieved in no small part to Langridge’s theatrical direction and blocking, which manages to utilise a basic space very imaginatively. Mix with that some great cinematography, a neatly paced edit and chilling soundtrack from composer/producer Raiomond Mirza and I guarantee you will require time in your seat at the end of the film to recuperate before leaving the cinema. It’ll be as if you need to regain “control”. Fab.'
