Movie Info

A Los Angeles liquor store owner and his friends are stalked by a serial killer during a late-night poker game in this grisly slasher film from first-time writer/director Daniel Maze. A voyeuristic madman is torturing the owners of inner-city convenience stores and stealing the security tapes for some sick thrills. Upon hearing that the reward for the maniac's capture is up to $500,000, liquor store owner Steve (Eduardo Garcia), beer delivery driver Morty (Steve Guttenberg), and their pals begin playfully speculating on what they would do to the killer if they caught him, and how they would spend the reward money. Later, after locking up the store, Steve and his friends Donny (Peter Story), Jimmy (James Duvall), Mona (Ellia English), and Jess (Elizabeth Nicole) settle in for their regular poker game. When one of the players goes missing, the rest of the group starts to panic and attempts to convince local transient Jacko (David Jean Thomas) to alert the authorities. But that plan fails when Jacko is butchered, and the terrified poker players realize that the killer is murdering each of them in the same way they said they would do away with him, and that it's only a matter of time before he discovers the lethal set of butcher's tools stockpiled in the basement of the store.

I got the impression Cornered! wanted to be a melding of Clerks and Scream, but all I wanted to do was scream "Get on with it!" and clock out early.

Audience Reviews for Cornered!

An irreverent, funny, and entertaining slasher film, Cornered! is by no means truly original or intelligent in its blend of horror tropes and comedy, yet it still manages to be an engaging 90 minutes worth of slasher fare that still far outshines the crappy Scream films' attempts to blend horror and comedy.

(* 1/2): [img][/img] It starts out okay, but it turns into yet another boring, predictable horror film.


A smart, hilarious film with an incredible twist. I loved this film, all though it was slow paced at times. I demand a sequel!
