Editorial Reviews

An all-star cast including Melissa Joan Hart (Sabrina: The Teenage Witch), John Terry (TV’s Lost, 24) and James C. Victor (TV's 24) triggers top-notch suspense in this gruesome tale of a masked gunman on the prowl. With hoods over their heads, nine handcuffed strangers are about to learn their kidnapper’s game. They must work together to answer one question: Why have they been targeted? One of them will die every 10 minutes unless they can strip away each other’s secrets to solve this dangerous, twisted puzzle that could leave NINE DEAD.

Clear or ambiguous.

The movie keeps you guessing up until about half way through, but as you get closer to the end, you figure out more and more.

Good suspense movie.

The best part about Nine Dead is that it keeps you in suspense. The downside? It's been done before in the 2007 film Fermat's Room.

The story is centered around nine strangers who have been kidnapped and handcuffed in a room. Every 10 minutes, their kidnapper will kill one of them, until they realize what they all have in common. Their situation is also complicated by the fact that one of the nine strangers doesn't speak English.

The biggest problem I have with the film is that the film's concept has already been tackled by several movies, including La Habitación de Fermat. In Fermat's Room, four strangers are trapped in a shrinking room that will crush them to death, unless they can discover what they all have in common.

The majority of the cast has worked primarily in television, and there's nothing particularly special about the cinematography. While the film was suspenseful, the film's open-ended conclusion will disappoint many viewers. Not to mention that it was virtually impossible for the kidnapper to know how many of the strangers were connected. Even though I'm straight, I thought the director's choice of which character just so happened to be a pedophile was an unnecessary stereotype and in awful taste.

Overall, the movie is worth a buck to watch through Redbox. But considering it's light on originality, I'd consider giving it a rent before deciding to buy the DVD.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Brian Dowrick on April 25, 2010
Format: DVD
I like Cheesy films, but there is only so much I can let slide.
The film is basic. 9 people in a room. They are all connected somehow with something bad that happened. They will be killed unless they can figure it out.
In Saw, the information about each victim can be researched. In this film the killer finds stuff about each person that even THEY never told anyone, and forgot. Even a world Class Hacker could not find out this stuff, and put the pieces together. Secret stuff that happened in a car on an empty street, or in an office, or even in a confessional.
Letting ALL that slide, I can still find fault in the ending. If the cops are complete idiots, they could still find out what happened.
The acting is B-Film levels, but very good for first time actors.
overall, if you have 2 hours to waste before falling asleep, pop this in, but you'd be better served by re-watching one of the SAW movies, or even Smoking Aces 2 (a much better film, with less holes, and a better ending).

Yes, this film is clearly a bit of an homage to the Saw series, but it is different enough to be interesting. The characters are decent enough, if a bit generic. However, the plot itself is very good. Granted, it's a bit unrealistic insofar as the killer managed to find out the relevant information that not only started the scheme, but also linked many of the nine captives to the background story. However, the film is very suspenseful and builds up quite nicely. However, I agree with just about all of the other reviewers in that the ending came out of nowhere. The writers clearly intended it to be open-ended, but either that type of ending doesn't work well for this film, or the closing shot could have been done much better. Still, a very solid piece of work.

This movie is one of the best thrillers I have seen in years. Tight, fast moving, intense drama. The film makers only made one critical error --- they left out the ending. It's like they ran out of money or something and simply said 'okay, that's a wrap'.

With an ending, ANY ending, I would have given this film a 5 star rating. Alas, I can only give it 1 star for being one of the most frustrating films I have ever wasted 2 hours of my life on.

Give this one a miss ... if you're not into frustration.

Format: DVD
A masked gunman is going around town adbucting people. Citizens are concerned, the police are puzzled, and just for fun Daniel Baldwin gets tazzered in his cameo appearance. Then we see nine hood figures in a room, bound to poles by pairs of handcuffs. The masked man appears and removes their hoods. He explains that the nine of them are there for a reason and until they can figure out the connection, he will return every ten minutes and kill one of them. To help them solve the puzzle he dumps a bunch of chalk on the floor and on his way out the door he releases one set of handcuffs so they can chalk their own Cliffs Notes on the wall. There is even a miniature "Lost"-like clock to countdown the ten minutes, and that is how the game is played in "Nine Dead."

There are a few familiar faces in the crowd, with Melissa Joan Hart as Kelley, making Sabrina the Teenage Witch a tiny speck in her rear view mirror, the most prominent. You should also recognize William Lee Scott from "The Butterfly Effect" and John Terry from "Lost." Then there is Lucille Soong, whom you will recognize and probably not be able to name (I could not), whose character is an interesting wild card because she does not speak English. You will suspect early on that the more familiar the face, the higher more likely a character is to survive longer as the film tries to make good on its title.
