Intro:

Growing up in a small town my whole life, I’ve yearned for the big city life – Just to be around different people and places would be an amazing experience for me. I don’t think of all the possible dangers that would be waiting for me out there. For instance, who knows when you might be in the eyes of a kidnapper, and could very well be his next victim? If that was the case, then it’d like the unknowing couple in the 2008 release of Ryan Cavalline’s Stockholm Syndrome.

Dialogue:

Written by the director, Stockholm Syndrome’s had great dialogue. I enjoyed the pace of the film; even with a few lengthy sequences. I was glad to see that those sequences weren’t plagued with the the f-bomb being used 10 times in a sentence, like other independent films I’ve seen in the past.

Acting:

I was VERY impressed with the acting in this film. I was able to notice a few actors I saw in another independent film at Fright Night Film Fest back in 2007. Todd Humes is an actor who I MUST give kudos to. This guy can act; he pulled off a hell of a performance in this film as well as the one I saw him in at Fright Night (Chasing Darkness). Overall all the whole cast seemed to give a perfect performance. From a disturbed priest to a estranged husband, everybody did a great job.

Plot:

The plot was very nice as well. It seemed similar along the lines of Hostel, but wasn’t a complete knock off. I enjoyed this very much, and it was interesting seeing the different characters’ true natures and feelings develop in the film. I loved the gore – there wasn’t an excessive amount, but when there was some it was pretty extreme, which is ALWAYS a plus.

Music:

The scores present in this film were excellent. I loved the music in it, it TOTALLY helped set the right mood for the appropriate scenes. Whoever composed it NEEDS needs to get more work, because he is a very talented composer!

Overall:

Overall, The Stockholm Syndrome was a VERY entertaining film. I was pleased to see this come out of the independent world, which has been taking a beating here lately. I can’t wait to see more original work from Mr. Cavalline in the near future, he’s a talented talented guy! Kudos All Around!!!
