Storyline

In a big American city, the serial killer The Picasso Killer is terrorizing the dwellers and the police department does not have lead to find him. The bartender Christie Wallace dreams on moving to the countryside with her six year-old daughter Zoe to have a peaceful life far from the violence of the city. Late night of Christmas Eve, Christie leaves the Tides Bar where she works and walks back home. In an alley, she sees a woman dying covered on blood and The Picasso Killer sees Christie and chases her. She runs to a commercial building where the night watchman Wade is reluctant to open the door and does not give credit to Christie. She calls the police and Detectives Stefan Kerchek and Lawrence Kellog attend the call. When Christie tells that she can recognize the infamous serial-killer, there is a blackout, the phones are dead and the detectives cannot call the precinct. They lock the building waiting for reinforcement but sooner they find that The Picasso Killer has broken in the ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Above average but still somewhat flawed slasher
3 April 2015 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

Finding herself trapped in an apartment building, a woman finds the culprit to be a dangerous psychopath that mutilates women and carves them up into works of art and considers her his next project, forcing her and the residents still inside to fight back against the deranged madman.

This was a slightly flawed but still enjoyable enough slasher that has enough going for it. One of the good points to be had from it is the rather fun and fairly intense stalking going on inside here, as the film takes full advantage of the fact that they're trapped inside a crumbling apartment complex to full advantage. The languishing scenes played out over darkened corridors, endlessly twisting and turning back on themselves to get inside potential hiding spots but usually drowned out by the various hideouts within. The pace is fast enough that there's not a lot of dragged-out spots, furthering how exciting it was by keeping things flowing along quickly enough to keep interested in what's going on as the various deaths and stalking scenes throughout here become even more exciting towards the end as the big race to get out of the building starts. The final confrontation on the roof generates a lot of excitement as well with all the action really centered around that segment which makes for a thrilling finish to this. As well, the killer is pretty unique and creative though saddled with a lame gimmick to keep it exciting since there's no sense as to why the cops would dub him this given that all the information for that is given to us rather than the police. That's still not to discount how effectively creepy he is, but there's also some problems as well that are pretty hard to overlook. The criminal lack of a body-count here is the main issue, as there's just not a large enough number of victims to get killed off here, and the fact that this one has them done in by a gunshot or rather rudimentary stabbing off-screen highlights the thriller nature this was intended to be. The rudimentary storyline also has a few lame problems with it as the general sense pervading this one tends to be all made up on the spot with little room to actually maneuver around it's turns effectively since they're mostly seen coming from a mile away. Overall, this one wasn't as bad as it could've been.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Full Nudity and a sex scene.
