Intacto

DIRECTED BY Juan Carlos Fresnadillo STARRING Max Von Sydow, Leonardo Sbaraglia, Eusebio Poncela Opens April 11, Cert 15, 108 Mins Coming on like a cross between David Fincher's The Game and M Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable, the debut feature from writer/director Fresnadillo is a twisted, ingeniously constructed thriller.

Trapped

OPENS APRIL 25, CERT 15, 106 MINS Everything about this slice of uber-trash is insane. Remember John McNaughton's Wild Things—so over-the-top that it was both atrocious and brilliant? Trapped is its mad twin, the one they lock in the attic. Anything casting Kevin Bacon and Courtney Love (neither of whom has ever consciously under-acted) as a pair of deranged kidnappers has to have loads going for it, however hysterically flawed. In brief: Bacon grabs Charlize Theron while Love nabs Stuart Townsend; they delegate minding the kid to Pruitt Taylor Vince and demand money.
