Plot – Spoilers:
Yannick’s life seems on the upswing. He’s just been offered admission in a film-making course. This also means he gets to move out of his parent’s home and away from his bullying Dad.
Driving around his new neighborhood he falls off his bike and stops at the nearest house to phone for a taxi. While cleaning himself in the kitchen, he hears muffled pleas for help coming from upstairs. If it were you, would you get the hell out of there or try and find who is it that needs help?
This was a surprisingly very good film. The acting and storyline gradually builds to a boil while the antagonist straddles the line of right and wrong so seamlessly at times it becomes hard to define which is which.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It is refreshing to stumble upon a movie with an original storyline, in my opinion. Thank you EUM for delivering the goodies once again in your indomitable style.
Yes, this is a must-see. Psychological torture and everybody is mental. Loved it.
This guy deserved to be held captive.. gives a girl candy out of his bare hand.. invites himself into someones house to wash up.. damn dude.
Damn i almost cried when Maude became the Queen
Very interesting film, truly a work of art, the way one mans psychosis is transferred into another mans mind is so well executed in the film. The way it was done visually through chess and all coming together in the end for the ultimate game is beautiful.
I had no expectations, I was entertained, good film
Better than The Queen’s Gambit honestly.
taxi driver wants to clean the streets of all the filth
where have i seen that before?
father should have shaved a mohawk
Captivity was merited as soon as he invited himself into a stranger’s home… Maude was quintessentially charming, Michelle was a firecracker
yeah another good movie. great acting, photography, and sfx. loved it THANKS AGAIN EFFEDUP
I enjoyed this one…story keeps you interested…religious madness…Stockholm Syndrome deluxe…
Wow! Astonishingly good film from start to finish! Definitely inspired by the chess novella by Stefan Zweig. The only thing that didn’t make sense to me was how Michelles (boy?)-friend got the tape, other than that I am genuinely pleased with this film.
Still wonder what the red spot on the wall was all about..
5/5 from me.
Thank you so much for this film and your effort in general, admins!
A excellent movie I keep returning to. The way the madness is transferred onto the protagonist is brilliant with the ending being the best part, with Yannick having gone and stayed insane.
Excellent all round
Everything was ace.. the story… The filming… The characters were believable and the dark story right on point. A marvelous film
I gotta say. I agree 100% with this one. If i’m so generous as to call a cab for you and you take it upon yourself to enter my domain without permission…… yeah! You belong to me now. You gave up your rights!
He looks like keanu reeves.
Jacques is based af xD

Amazing movie! too bad its not critically acclaimed or has many reviews cos this was and easy top 50 movie for me!!!
It’s the only movie from my country on this site, and it’s the only one that only has good comments on it. Thank you I don’t know why but it makes me feel proud lol
This was SO MUCH BETTER than I expected. I tried to watch it around 3 times but stopped, tonight was the right day to watch it. I loved Michelle and Maude.
AHHRRGG !! Du québécois ! Heureusement qu’il y avait les sous-titres, sinon je ne comprenais rien ! Sinon, très bon film, c’est pas souvent qu’on voit des films d’horreur en français québécois !
