Movie Info

Film noir comes to the Midwest in this dark thriller. Jerry (Darren E. Burrows) runs a tiny bar near the Milwaukee waterfront, where business is bad and crime is often worse. Jerry's money problems are especially worrisome for him lately, since he's acquired a new girlfriend Jill (Paige Rowland) with rather expensive tastes. Near the end of his rope, Jerry is asked by Doug (Mark Sheppard), who stops into the tavern for a drink, to do him a bit of a favor -- if Jerry will dump an old trunk into the lake without asking any questions, Doug will give him $500 in cash. Jerry agrees, but after dropping the trunk into the drink, Jerry goes back to his place to find his girlfriend missing, blood all over the floor, and a woman's scalp left behind. So what did Jerry just throw away? Has Doug just implicated Jerry in a murder? What's become of Jill? And what else has Doug been up to?

Audience Reviews for Lady in the Box

Despite being a low-budget mystery/suspense and being released by The Asylum, Lady In The Box is a genuinely good film. While there are a few plot holes here and there, this was a very well made film and poses questions about a person will do for money, only to end up getting caught in a tangled web of lies and people start turning up dead all because of money.

This movie gets a higher rating for a few reasons; awesome story with some great twists, good acting, its filmed in Milwaukee, AND they are drinking Sprecher the whole time, one of the best brands of beer! Really though, as an independent film it is good. I liked the story a lot and its only brought down by a few cheesier parts.
