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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful - But Completely Unoriginal March 25, 2010
By Compay
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just a big Cheat, and a Saw Ripoff April 25, 2010
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).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, until the ending April 27, 2010
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great thriller --- without an ending April 10, 2010
By Karen
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nine Dead March 20, 2010
A masked maniac locks nine strangers in a room together and reveals that he will kill one of them every ten minutes until they can figure out the factor that connects them all. As the clock starts to tick, the desperate prisoners scramble to solve the malevolent mystery in time to save their own lives. The acting, sets and story are quite average. Yes the movie is a lot like the idea of Saw. Actually not that bad, but not that good either.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting January 4, 2013
I love movies where you must try to figure out where it is going. Nine Dead is such a movie. Clues are given throughout. The ending resulting in compiling these clues and coming up with the "aha" moment of realizing why the event happened. Highly recommend!

4.0 out of 5 stars Saw - Gore= Nine Dead October 7, 2012
Nine Dead is a well crafted Saw like thriller. A killer puts nine people in a room and they have to guess why they are there. The killer will come back and kill someone ever ten minutes so it makes it harder for them to figure out how they are connected. The characters are very well done, espeically the pedophile. He is down right creepy and steals the film. It does lose a bit of steam in the second act but it's still very enjoyable. I highly recommend this movie to horror fans who don't rely on gore for a good time and likes a story.

3.0 out of 5 stars Melissa Joan Hart is still cute! July 18, 2012
By J.N.
SPOILER ALERT! There's been some negative reviews concerning Melissa Joan Hart's acting and the film's lack of originality, but I have to disagree. I think Melissa Joan Hart did fine in this movie despite the cheesy dialogue she had to regurgitate. And this may have been a low budget b-movie but it was actually quite interesting and very watchable. My biggest complaint and why I only gave the film three stars is the "Killer's" uneven motive. I mean I can understand why he would want revenge against the people who have wronged him. But quite frankly, some of the nine people he kidnapped are barely guilty. The poor Chinese lady only misidentified someone. She's an aging, immigrant who was pistol whipped during a store robbery and pointed out the wrong person in a line up. Who can blame her? And the insurance agent was just following protocol when denying a claim to someone with a criminal record, there was no malice or evil intent. So I couldn't really empathize with the killer when he chose them as part of the nine to die. The stereotypical, street tough, gun selling thug and the obnoxious, Nicholas Cage-like, mafia, strip club owner were also only incidentally guilty BUT I didn't mind seeing them get killed because they were such unlikable characters. The others in the group like the petty thief, dopey priest and sucky cop were also unsavory jerks but not directly involved in any wrong doing. So their deaths did not bring much satisfaction. I think it would have made a stronger impact if these people were a tad more loathsome and directly responsible in wronging the killer. Strangely, the two characters who were the MOST guilty got off kind of light. Read more ›
