The Disappearance of Alice Creed is a low budget 2010 film.
7 out of 10 stars. For a film that takes place almost entirely in two rooms with only three actors, it’s pretty good. A better than average kidnapping flick, but still very British.
Alice Creed is the disinherited daughter of a British millionaire who makes the mistake of dating an ex-con named Danny. The next thing she knows she’s got a bag over her head, a sedative stuck in her arm, and is being whisked off to somewhere in the woods by two male kidnappers. She has no idea one of them is Danny until about halfway through the film. The other kidnapper is Danny’s former cellmate, Vic, who he’s convinced he’s in love with. They had a sexual relationship in prison that they continued outside of prison, but Vic has a very dark side.
The kidnapping itself is brutal. She’s drugged, gagged, stripped naked, tied to a bed, and photographs are taken of her. That’s just the beginning of a kidnapping gone terribly awry.
7 out of 10 stars. Pretty good for a low budget production. Excellent acting.
