Long Story Short:
Elliot has just lost his job and his wife is pregnant. Wondering how he is going to provide for his family, he receives a mysterious phone call: A man promises him several million dollars. All he has to do is pass thirteen tasks, and keep this “game” a secret.

Review:
13 Sins is a remake of the Thai movie 13: Game of Death from 2006, but one could say it is a remake that has its own unique tone and can easily stand on its own. While 13: Game of Death is rather comedic and a little nauseating, 13 Sins is dark and mysterious, and turns quite gory towards the end. While I expected the conclusion to be much bigger and louder in the US version, I was still satisfied and didn’t regret watching it. I liked the twists and turns in the middle, the commitment of the actors and the relatively round storyline. If there ever was a sequel to come out I would definitely check it out. What I didn’t like was the title; it didn’t make sense. How about 13 Tasks or just keeping the original title? For one day I would like to get in those people’s head who make movie titles. Anyway, I can recommend this movie to anyone who likes a thriller that is above average. There haven’t been that many around lately.

My Rating: 6.5/10

Caution: Two scenes are definitely not for the light hearted. So beware of signs for something bad happening, pick up a pillow and cover your face! 😀
