A wonderfully arty and creepy post modern slasher film with grin inducing offbeat performances. It's like Ten little Indians went to Twin Peaks to get offed one by one and for that this film gets a high recommendation from me!

A creepy opening scene involving a nice old fashioned horror movie chase complete with masked psycho and beautiful lady, leads the film moves towards it core plot. Ten woman arrive at the mansion where the aforementioned chase took place but in an intriguing twist  it transpires that these are all apparent strangers with no ties to one another.

As the women find themselves stranded for the night, a masked maniac begins taking them out one by one.... you have all heard THAT one before I know, however Ten has a refreshingly different tone to your usual slice and dice fare. There is a dreamlike quality to proceedings that may take the seasoned slasher fan out of their comfort zone but will certainly appeal to those looking for something a bit different and original. There are some funny scenes for sure - ten very different people all holed up together? Of course you should expect some fighting and squabbling! You may not, however, expect a musical number but that's what you get and it should raise a smile.

Please show your support for TEN and go and check out the official movie website.  I am excited to see what is next in store from this team that's for sure.
