Imagine waking up not in your bed. You don’t know where you are. You have a bag over your head and you are tied to a chair. Weird right?

Well, meet Dave, Lew Freeburn, we know he’s called Dave because he has a name badge on his polo shirt that says, Dave. Other than that, we know very little about Dave, other than the fact that he’s tied to a chair with a hessian sack over his head.

And then, a mysterious figure walks into the room, Dave just able to make him out through the sack. The figure is wearing a dark boiler suit, with a balaclava and goggles on, all very mysterious, all a bit scary.

Dave tries to talk to the man, but the man isn’t having any of it, instead he begins sharpening a very, very large knife. Dave tries more talking, all the while desperately trying to free his hands.

Finally, he’s free, and as the man turns his back on Dave, he clobbers him about the head with a plank of wood and legs it, eventually bursting out into the bright sunlight and…well, that would be telling.

Captive is a well written and nicely shot film from newly graduated director Thomas Elliott Griffiths who co-wrote with Duane Williams. It has a lovely twist that takes the film from dark and mysterious to something else completely and it works. I look forward to seeing more the guys soon.

THE QUICK SELL
Dave is an ordinary guy who just so happens to wake up with his hands tied and a bag over his head in the company of a suspected cannibal serial killer.
