Movie Info

Bruno Hamel, il a 38 ans et il est chirurgien. Avec Sylvie, sa conjointe, et Jasmine, sa fille de 8 ans, il habite heureusement en Drummondville. Jusqu'à ce que Jasmine, par un bel après-midi d'automne, soit violée et assassinée. Dès lors, l'univers de la famille Hamel bascule. Mais lorsque la police arrête le meurtrier, un terrible projet germe dans la tête enténébrée de Bruno; il va s'emparer du monstre et lui faire payer. Le jour de la comparution du meurtrier, Hamel, qui a minutieusement préparé son coup, kidnappe le monstre, puis transmet aux autorités policières un message laconique: celui qui a violé et tué ma petite fille va souffrir pendant 7 jours, après quoi il sera exécuté. Ensuite seulement, je me rendrai.

  • Director Grou lacks the gene for sheer, bloody exploitation, he also doesn't know how to rack up the tension and get under viewers' collective skin.

  • Despite the blood and gore, 7 Days is a cut above the usual splice-and-dice horror festival, but it's not for the squeamish or fainthearted.
