Excellent movie. Really gets you involved. I found myself feeling a lot of empathy for these people. Very realistic characterizations and it was refreshing to see realistic dialog. Nothing seemed contrived or false..riveting film. It reminded me a lot of Open Water and Open Water 2..with claustrophobia thrown in. Desperate race against time. The young man trapped with the two young ladies had a great plan, but he panicked and gave up too easily. He weighed down a towel with a heating stone and tried to swing it through the open portal and snag the step ladder that blocked the door. It was <more>
just inches too short. Had he asked one of the ladies to volunteer her bikini top, he could have tied it to the towel and saved them all.
Excellent movie should have had better ending (by richbolis)
This movie was quite excellent at times the guy Michael was pretty stupid and ends up regretting it at the end of the movie. I suggest you watch this movie it is a thriller, sometimes ratings are wrong but this movie is underrated i saw it on DVD very good they should have had it in theater and it is a true story wow shocking unbelievable movie !!!!!!! At times it gets unrealistic but it being true at that temperature that is unbelievable , though this is a good movie the problem is many people have not heard about it this is simply terrific, i suggest you see it any way you can because this <more>
This is the type of movie that you can easily decide whether or not it is worth your time. The plot says it all. Stuck in a sauna..why are they stuck and what will happen to the people? Nothing more, nothing less. If this plot sounds cool to you which it did to me as a fan of Open Water, Buried, Frozen, etc , then you will enjoy the movie. Period. Good acting, likable characters, etc. If a movie can leave a lasting impression on me, it worked. I will always be reminded of this movie any time I see or go into a sauna. Not that I frequent saunas, but you get the idea. This doesn't mean it <more>
was a great movie. It wasn't. But it was definitely above average. Scout Taylor Compton is a legit face in horror now so I enjoyed seeing her. I give it an 7/10 horror movie scale but I'm bumping it to an 8 just to offset some negative reviews.
Good movie. Simple premise and predictable but all around, well done. The characters trapped in the sauna weren't stupid as is often the case in such movies. They used their heads and tried to get out of the predicament they found themselves in. As one of the reviewers said, it did make you want to reach out and choke one of the characters. It will keep your attention; give it a look.
