Plot – Spoilers:
Aiden spots Liz at a store and later sees her trying to kill herself. So he partypoops her suicide attempt, takes her home located in the middle of nowhere and holds her captive under the watch of two adorable dogs. He also constantly calls her Helen, the name of his wife.
Liz is coming from a fucked up situation herself. She watched her kid brother throw himself off a building, ran over her sister’s dog and got thrown out of their flat, not necessarily on account of the dog. So Liz is kind of ok with anything that happens in her life. Well maybe not all ok, but at least she’s not hysterical when she awakens to her new fate with Aiden.
Liz has a few things going for her though. She’s smart and though she feels intimidated by Aiden’s quiet aggression, she’s not flustered by his bizarre behaviour and has enough of her wits about her to know he’s probably unhinged and that she shouldn’t go blind into an escape plan, but instead bide her time. She’s also manipulative – for the longest while, she’d used her charms on her brother-in-law to keep him on her side – now, this trait could turn out quite useful. But most of all, she can lie with a straight face.
But Aiden isn’t just sitting by, watching Liz being cheered on into escape by the viewer. He seems pretty sly too. He’ll play unhinged, but only up to a point. The moment it tips over to her possibly outwitting him, he can quickly switch back to making a very sane and well-thought-out decision.
It’s cat and mouse. Who’s gonna make it…

wrt the optional English subs available, the timing isn’t great. Too many mistakes, too much of a hassle, so corrected minimally.

OH and my comments are not movie request every movie I suggest I have seen. When I see movies like the one above I was just suggesting to cleanse the brain with some good art. ????
This movie is unintentionally hallarious and I 100% think it was made to show off her A1 Acups. Like seriously I’m impressed by how nice them Itty bitty bits are.
Grade A vegan tittys.
Notice how her boobs are all I’m talking about? That’s all I remember from this movie. I couldn’t tell you wtf I just watched. It’s like a not deep black snake moan.
You’re wasting your comments by posting them under Zed Man’s gravatar. You’ve already been told they’ll be deleted. Your choice….
Bit boring first part, made love in the mean time; second part better, more interesting. It’s true how bring surrounded by evil can make us do misdeeds ourselves. God knows how often serial murderers or lone gunmen have been bullied. The media generally is on the side of the bastards who provoked.
Can a movie still be concerned fucked up if it has a happy ending? Sorry this inquiry is only barely relevant to this movie in the sense that it is fucked up. But I really wanted some thoughts on this and I didn’t know where to ask. Please don’t name any movies! Just give your honest thoughts on the subject. Thanks.
Thoroughly enjoyed it.. funny .. good pace.. nice drama.. and a happy bloody ending…. A cute curio from Oz… Deffo watch it again..
Meditation Before of Satan- Ott Sumerian
A beautiful stockholm syndrome movie 🙂
this movie was pretty nice, ive been wanting to watch it since y’all posted it !
a wholesome love story.
My favourite part was at the end, when he’s wondering how the baby came out with red hair. She says it must be a throw back. Then you instantly remember the brother-in-law from the start of the film – lol!
she can’t go to hospital, she’s vegan. bro i lost it LMAO
Directly into my heart, thank you for providing this gem.
did not like how dogs died 🙁
It Would be real sick if this was based on true story XD
Liz is way cool. Aiden is really annoying. Movie takes a really unexpected turn. It’s a good film. 4 stars.
“You’ve got a blockage!” *Starts up the vacuum cleaner* Lmfao, some poignant moments though. A decent watch 4/5 xx
