Michael (Bernard Glincosky) seems to have fallen on the sunny side of life, he excels at his job as a realtor, he's got a dream home, a lovely wife, Karen (Julie Stackhouse), and a loving son, Lucas (Kieran Boyle). Sure, he has walked over a few people getting where he is, including some colleagues at work whom he tricked out of their accounts, and Karen's ex John (John DiRenzo), his "best friend" whom he stole her from, but that's really minor hiccups in an otherwise perfect life. Perfect ... until Lucas is kidnapped from his front lawn in broad daylight - and the kidnapper demands Michael to kill 6 random persons in the next 24 hours, threatening to kill Lucas otherwise. Now Michael might not be a perfect specimen, but he's not a killer at heart - but for his son he'd do anything - so he meticulously plans to commit the killings during a house showing the next day, including where to hide the bodies and everything. At first it's hard, but after a few murders he grows numb and even tries to lure his own cousin (Tom Schmitt) into his death trap - but still, killing six people is quite a challenge for an untrained person, and being one person short, he sees his time run out. But he'd literally do anything to save Lucas ...

Genre fave Jessica Cameron plays one of Michael's prospected victims.

 

The Listing raises a very interesting question: How far (low) would you go for the one you love, and one might argue that the film's protagonist goes several miles too far. But that said, the film's main objective is not to have a sterile discussion about the topic, but to tell a compelling story, and to so in a very cinematic way - and this way it manages to help us root for the main character even though we know his actions are totally wrong, objectively speaking - and that's of course made possible by a clever script, an inventive directorial effort, and also a strong central performance (receiving solid support from all involved). And the result is a really tight psychological thriller that manages to shock without going all-out spectacle, and keep its audience entertained throughout.

Worth a look for sure!
