Hatchet director Adam Green teams with that film's star Joel David Moore to craft this simmering psychological thriller about a reclusive telemarketer and artist who finds the many layers of his complex psyche gradually peeled away by a vivacious co-worker. Asthmatic cubicle dweller Mason (Moore) doesn't have many friends, and the closest thing he has to an actual relationship is his awkward interaction with his swaggering boss. All of that begins to change, however, when soul-searching newcomer Amber (Amber Tamblyn) lands a job at the office where Mason works. Amber is friendly but lonely, and on her quest to find herself she begins to open up to Mason, and the two become fast friends. When Amber discovers that Mason is a gifted painter, she agrees to pose for a series of portraits. Recognizing the similarity between the portraits of herself and the portraits of a blonde waitress that Mason recently removed from his studio walls, Amber becomes curious about Mason's past and begins to look deeper into his personality. But Mason has his fair share of dark secrets, and as Amber begins to probe deeper, the familiar cycle of torment and destruction that Mason has kept from her begins spinning once again and soon threatens to consume them both. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
I'm really upset that I went by all the positive reviews because the movie was awful! I know it was a character study and getting deep into this guy's mind, but it left loose ends and it was so, so depressing. I would never recommend this. I have no idea why some loved it so much.
This movie isn't worth renting. Maybe if it came on TV one night and you had nothing to do, a small portion of you might get a little something out of it. But it's pretty boring. Not much else to say about it, because not much happened in the movie.

This was quite different from other psychological films, it was a little slow but kept you interested and guessing what was going to happen next, the acting was great and story was good, had a great twist at the end a must see.............Enjoy.
Ok, I have to admit I'm starting to like writing movie reviews. Maybe because I'm better at picking movies! Once upon a time I needed lots of stuff jumping out at me from the screen to get my attention. I've matured and like to see stuff that's below the surface......deep. This is some get-under-your-skin kind of stuff that makes you think twice about judging a book by it's cover. This movie is it!! It keeps you craving for some answers and hanging on waiting for them. Just when you think you know what's what.....BAM! Nope that's not it! And then the movie takes another shocker and I just went WHOA! Awesome actors, lots of emotional ups and downs and psychological truths. Remember this: Sometimes when you think you're helping someone, you might be making the situation worse. Let go of your ego and call a damn therapist!!! Great movie!!
