Editorial Reviews

For years, Aaron Tyler (Johnathon Schaech, Quarantine, Prom Night ) has been getting together with his three best friends on Monday nights to play poker. But tonight, everything is about to change forever when the men accidentally kill a burglar who's broken into Aaron's house. Fearing the consequences, Aaron and his friends dispose of the corpse and agree to take the secret to their graves. However, they soon discover that someone knows what they've done and is now playing a murderous game of revenge with them in this horrifying thriller. Based on the novel by Ed Gorman.

Effortless... Based on reading one preview article and Judy Reyes' involvement, I saw The Poker Club. I wasn't let down, for once. This story is of an accidental murder after an innocuous poker game (Hosted by Johnathon Schaech) among friends. Soon enough, it becomes clear that almost everyone who appears to be an innocent bystander to the homicide in the beginning, actually has MUCH deeper problems. I love how this story is told... every time a guilty party is approached by a cop (In most cases, Reyes, the lead detective), your stomach sinks. You really don't want anyone to be caught, even though you know what happened was horrible. In the end, everything is wrapped up nicely, and though no moment in the movie is happy, I'm glad I saw it. It portrays the guilt of all those involved better than most movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tight Thriller Brought to Life by McCann April 19, 2009
Format:DVD
Poker Club is one of those smaller genre films that could easily get lost in the shuffle were it not for Tim McCann's tight, smart and stylish direction. This is not the first time we've seen this kind of film, where one mistake leads to a series of disasterous choices by the hero. McCann's first foray into genre filmmaking is informed by his more individual indie style.He captures his audience and moves the film at breakneck speed building to an unusal and unexpected ending.Entertaining and well worth seeing for the fine acting and directing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice, tight indie thriller. April 18, 2009
Format:DVD
Not really a poker movie, but a character driven thriller. Tim McCann is an excellent, underrated director who always brings a gritty edge to his movies. Nice performances and snappy direction elevate this nifty crime drama.

5.0 out of 5 stars nice plot-twist September 15, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had to watch this movie a few times, just to catch all the little clues that lead to the plot twist at the end. This movie has a good plot, but the real focus of the movie is on the acting. The behaviour, the eye-contact, the facial expressions. And it's all good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good solid thriller April 18, 2009
Format:DVD
I saw this at a screening and liked it. It's a murder mystery thriller in the vein of a Hitchcock film, but with a contemporary spin to it. The direction was solid, the actors good and the script kept me guessing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Poker Club is.... May 19, 2009
Format:DVD
"The Poker Club", which I saw at a film festival, examines the bad choices we make when we take our life for granted, and shows how they can come back to haunt us. It is a thriller that, for the most part, keeps a strong momentum going, and has a lively cast of characters (although it is an unrealistically good looking group). It's a lot of fun to watch, is not going to strain anyone's braincells, but is much more emotionally involving than most films of this kind. Judy Reyes, who is from the TV show Scrubs, plays a detective. It's a much different role for her, and she gives a standout performance. Also, Lori Huering is very impressive.
