Watched House of 9.

Take nine people, made up of various unknown European actors and Dennis Hopper sporting an Irish accent that runs about a two on the believability scale. Kidnap them and stick them in a hotel with all the doors and windows sealed off with the admonition that the last one alive will get 5 million dollars.

Huh. Sounds like Saw. Or Das Experiment. Or The Cube. Or Saw II. Or Saw III.

Okay, at least the Saw series had nifty gadgets of death. This movie really relies on the characters to get the story across, except that the characters are not particularly well written. All two-dimensional. I don't really care about any of them. And no surprises. It's almost a parody of the sub-genre, except it takes itself seriously.

Shot in Romania. I'd guess a tiny budget.

Has some trailers from other movies from BauerMartinez studios. Apparently this is where all the actors that you thought "hey, where did so-and-so go?" go to when they make movies. Roy Scheider? Dolph Lundgren? Jerry Springer, fer Chrissakes? And isn't Pat Morita dead?

    Woke up this morning, let the dog outside. There is snow. Crawling back into bed now.

    It got cold enough in the kitchen that the pipes to and from the dishwasher froze. I had to thaw them with a space heater.
