From The Shadows
A young woman wins a fortune on the lottery; next thing she knows she is being held captive out in the wilds by a man who can only be described as totally ruthless. He wants the ticket, but there is more to him and more to her captivity. She is raped, brutalised, and injected with drugs that make her hallucinate. But are the mysterious entities she sees in this derelict building purely the product of the drugs acting on her mind? This is where it gets silly, because just prior to her escape, her captor sees them too. Also, what of her love interest, the guy who'd come into her life with a bang, he is certainly an enigmatic individual, but is he part of the plot too, or another victim?
This had the makings of a half-decent film, gratuitous damsel torture aside, but it tries too hard, and although there is a resolution, the biggest question is not answered. Also, there are numerous flashbacks, which coupled with the nightmare scenes are confusing if not outright annoying.
