From the author of Hostile (2017). He's cocked his moviemaker's weapons as second unit director of Inglourious Basterds (2009) and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011). With the actress, sorry, finalist in the category of worst female performance at the Razzies for The Legend of Hercules (2015). With a mind-boggling screenplay that sees the lead character trapped inside a tube of a design not unlike a human intestine made of steel (just look at the poster). It goes without saying that every bend in said piping conceals (or offers the sadistic viewer) a trap. Either you get on with it and may or may not die, or you stay there and definitely will meet your maker. At Sitges they said it was minimalistic, claustrophobic and bloodcurdling. Well of course it is.
