Vicki Maloney is randomly abducted from a suburban street by a disturbed couple. As she observes the dynamic between her captors she quickly realises she must drive a wedge between them if she is to survive.
Teenagers Zach and Josh have been best friends their whole lives, but when a gruesome accident leads to a cover-up, the secret drives a wedge between them and propels them down a rabbit hole of escalating paranoia and violence.
While holidaying in Berlin, Australian photojournalist Clare meets Andi, a charismatic local man, and there is an instant attraction between them. A night of passion ensues. But what initially appears to be the start of a romance suddenly takes an unexpected and sinister turn when Clare wakes the following morning to discover Andi has left for work and locked her in his apartment. An easy mistake to make, of course, except Andi has no intention of letting her go again. Ever.
The Melbourne production design team and art department recreated Andi's apartment on a Docklands sound stage based on the original apartment in Berlin. The majority of scenes in the apartment were shot on that set in Melbourne. The set had working water, gas, and electricity plus a fake wall and greenscreens for the neighbouring building. See more »
It is improbable for Andi to liberate his impaled hand from a screwdriver without any sharp edge the way he did. See more »

Oh dear. We've seen so many versions of this film before. It's depressing to think of the amount of time and money spent on this. So many dutiful and professional crew members, a lot of talented and intelligent people, and several million dollars all went swirling down the drain for a semi interesting but in the end, pointless and depressing story. What are we supposed to feel when leaving the theatre? If it's a little annoyed, pretty frustrated, and thoroughly depressed, then hats off - job well done. I fail to understand how films like this get made and so many gifted people waste so much time and effort making them. Is it so awful to aim to make a commercial film that a majority of audiences will enjoy? Is that so terrible? With so much wonderful material available to film production companies and talented directors and actors, why is it that depressing and predictable stories like this get made so often. Oh dear.
