13 Sins (2014)



Critic Consensus: 13 Sins may be derivative of other horror films that made their moral points with more finesse, but it atones with a grim sense of humor and sleek style.

Critic Reviews for 13 Sins

All Critics (43) | Top Critics (14)

The overall effect is enormously amusing. And haunting as well.

April 24, 2014

An unrepentant horror-thriller, stoked with tension and grim revelations.

April 18, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Darkly funny and deeply twisted, "13 Sins" grabs you from its startling opening sequence and doesn't let go.

April 18, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

13 Sins is a smart, stylish picture elevated by fine performances by Webber and a superior ensemble of supporting players, including Richard Bower, Ron Perlman, and Pruitt Taylor Vince.

April 18, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

An empty, efficient thriller that leaves you as cold as most of its characters.

Never satisfyingly accounts for how the unseen puppeteer manages to keep a constant eye on Elliot's every move.

Audience Reviews for 13 Sins

You don't play the game. It plays you. Very Good Movie! 13 sins is one of the most intriguing movies I've seen in quite a while, something of a "Identity" that will keep you there, craving for more even getting your mind twisted a little. It was perfect, from start to finish, and I can't believe I didn't hear more about it. Sadly, a lot of good horrors lately remain completely unknown even after they are release and it is quite the shame, but fanatics will always find a way of digging them up. The cast was good, Mark Webber did an excellent job, Ron Perlman is always good on screen and Pruitt Taylor Vince always offers a dark touch to his films. The plot was not the most original, but not one of those over used subjects either, the execution is the key here. Pretty much everything was done the way it supposed to and all horror fans will have a big smile at the end of it. 13 sins is indeed a good horror! Elliot Brindle is a bright, meek salesman, drowning in debt - and desperate as he's about to marry the ×love of his life. Upon receiving a phone call informing him that he's on a hidden camera game show where he must execute 13 tasks to receive a sum total cash prize of $6.2M, Elliot dismissively follows through with his first two ×instructions: swat the fly that is currently bothering him, then eat the fly. With thousands of dollars suddenly appearing in his bank account, Elliot remains skeptical, though comforted by the knowledge that he can stop playing at anytime if only to lose every penny that he's won. Trapped into the horrors manipulated by unseen spectators, Elliot's need to complete the game escalates as the tasks grow more extreme, to a devastating point of no return.

An imaginative horror that should have provided more tension. Average movie to add to the genre but enjoyable.
