Young Emily (Katlynne Grace) is kidnapped, with the intention of getting 1 million Dollar out of her dad Donald (Gary Alan Kauffman) - but daddy can't get the money on such short order, so the kidnapper kidnaps him as well ... but not quite, because you see, the kidnapper, Juan (Francisco Ovalle) and Donald are actually accomplices who've come up with an elaborate scheme to kill Donald's wife Christina (Natalie Alexander), who is to withdraw the money in Donald's stead and to be shot during handover. But there's something sinister going on at Juan's place where he keeps Emily, and thus the two men are soon on the edge, and ultimately, after working out all the details of the handover with Christina, Juan shoots Donald dead. Thing is, things might not be quite as black and white as they first seemed, and Juan might have never intended to Christina for reasons yet to be revealed, and maybe other players have their hands in the whole affair as well, and maybe, just maybe, even God and/or the Devil ...


The Great Deceiver is a really fun mix of crime thriller and horror that's structured in such a way that it always seems to be two or three twists ahead of its audience - something that it packs into such a light-hearted approach though that the outcome is actually pretty hilarious, even if the humour of this movie is pretty dark and twisted. And the direction really manages to keep the balance between dark and light and never drift off into one or the other, while a solid cast keep the thing grounded, all of which results in an enjoyable genre ride.
