A man (Daniel Gillies) and a woman (Elisha Cuthbert) awaken to find themselves captured in a cellar. As their kidnapper drives them psychologically mad, the truth about their horrific abduction is revealed.

The story of “Captivity” revolves around Jennifer Tree (Elisha Cuthbert), a naive  buxom blond supermodel-actress whose only true friend appears to be a fluffy white toy dog that she totes around everywhere she goes (including posh Soho nightclubs). 

Enjoy Your Stay: Squatters (2014)

 

Home early from their vacation, a wealthy Pacific Palisades family discovers a pair of homeless young drifters who were squatting in their home.

This movie has everything and you should definitely check it out. It is delivered by director Martin Weisz in an interesting way, and the script by Justin Shilton brings a lot to the table.

“Copperhead” Comes to Blu-Ray & DVD

I received an advanced copy of the film last week and let me tell you the film transfers nicely to digital. Warner Home Video blu-ray discs offer resolution six times higher than standard definition DVDs, as well as extraordinary vibrant contrast and color and beautifully crisp sound.

Amy, a naive college graduate who believes she’s destined to be a great poet, begrudgingly accepts a job at a sex shop while she pursues a mentorship with reclusive writer Rat Billings. The sex shop is aptly titled “Adult World” – a great pun for the film.
