Long Story Short:
Pippa is a former model that is trapped to her apartment due to a tragic incident that happened to her about four years ago. But soon the only safe place she has is being intruded, and Pippa has to fight for her territory.
Confine starts with different scenes of unimpressive runway shoes, then it goes right into the protagonist’s everyday life: Being trapped to her own apartment, trying to convince herself over and over that she is safe here, however, we never find out what really happened to her. Then one of the villains enters her apartment and this is when the horror is supposed to start. But this movie didn’t get any emotions out of me besides confusion and boredom. I was confused about how it is possible that Pippa has to walk with a stick and is limping, but every now and then she walks just fine. I was bored from the story that was too shallow to even make sense. I was wondering what importance it had that they spoke all those different languages and Kayleigh was only cursing in German? Being German myself I actually like it sometimes to hear German in English movies but I couldn’t care less about it here. The question is, what went wrong here? I would say almost everything. I don’t think the actors were bad, but I am not sure if they even knew what was going on themselves, and the twist at the end didn’t save it either. There have been released plenty of claustrophobic thrillers in the past years, but none of them can deliver uniqueness, excitement or creativity, because the storyline is simply too shallow. If the setting is usually the same throughout the whole movie there has to be a banging storyline. My tip: Watch movies like Copycat or Death and The Maiden to get a great experience.
