Aro Recommended Disappearance of Alice Creed, The


UK 2009, 96 minutes
Dir. J Blakeson
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Suspense/Crime / Hostages & Terrorism


Aroview: Nominally another addition to the flavorless torture genre, this ransom drama centred on the abduction of a millionaire's daughter by two would-be kidnappers is an excellent exercise in tension building and resourceful filmmaking.

Confined primarily to the interior of an apartment, dir. Blakeson indulges in some of the cruelties that have become standard issue in recent times, however handles the plot twists, reversals, and interaction between the three actors with a level of control more typical of a stageplay than a chamber piece horror. If not sustained all the way to the film’s end, a tense and riveting watch.
