review by
Mike Haberfelner

A woman (Johanna Stanton) finds herself in a gloomy room with no idea how she got there or who she is even, but she's pretty sure she can't get out. Soon all sorts of bizarre characters pop up pretty much out of nowhere, like a sleazy couple (Debbie Rochon, Matthew Tompkins), a creepy "man of God" (James Simmons) who accuses her of every evil under the sun, even if she doesn't feel any guilt per se, a girl who's the epitomy of innocence (Hayden Tweedie) to a point of self denial, another girl with no eyes (Katie Kensit) who refuses to let reality in, and a man (Nicholas Ball) who slowly tries to piece everything together and convinces the woman that whatever she's going through is a mental journey stemmed from her very own past rather than a physical one. But the more our heroine learns, the more uncomfortable and downright frightening the truth she has to face is getting ...

 

Now while the premise of Doom Room might sound quite a bit like Saw and other movies of this ilk, its execution is definitely on the brainier side of things, not going right for the guts but digging deep into the sub- and unconscious, leaving the audience with a fascinating (and disturbing) puzzle that only gradually begins to make sense. And this is all thanks to a script that's only seemingly chaotic but in the end makes perfect sense, a directorial effort that gives the narrative enough space to breathe and helps to tell the story instead of drawing too much light onto itself, and a cast that's really in on the story and its many layers of reality. Maybe not for everyone, but a fascinating movie for those into intelligent and off-mainstream horror for sure.
