Movie Info

A modern transgressive thriller in the style of Brian De Palma, this Hitchcocktail of elevated suspense and shock begins when Sarah Montrose meets the philosophical, smooth-talking Lewis Blake. Handsome and captivating, Lewis is the bait in a sick and twisted game conjured up with his low-life-rich-kid house mate, Kenneth. When the men's sexual game backfires with wild abandon. Sarah is forced into an unlikely and bloodied alliance, her fragile psyche threatened by a monster, she calls on all her strength and cunning to do battle with a psychopath, and her own inner demon.

The two leads, who like so many young Australian actors these days have made their names in American TV series, are utterly, creepily convincing...

A mesmerising psychological noir thriller in which a one night stand turns sour; and that's just the start.

February 2, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

This is, at its core, a rape revenge film, and while Pimped is co-written by a woman, there's a distinctly masculine perspective to this story, making it a muddled affair that wants to have its cake and voraciously eat it too.

This could have been intriguing if the film's ideas were clearer. But they aren't. ... Mystery and ambiguity can be gripping and exciting onscreen, but as I watched Pimped I mainly felt bored and annoyed.

Lewis is a smarmy sybarite who plays women as sexual chess pieces with housemate Kenny as his gormless second banana. When their paths cross with party girl Sarah, they're all headed straight to hell.

June 22, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Slick, ripper little low-budget thriller in which a very nasty sex "game" played by party-loving womaniser Lewis (Benedict Samuel) goes very wrong, leading to a lethal domino effect.
