After being fired from his job, Dan (Kris Desnautels) moves to the country with his wife Chris (Cyn Dulay) and her sister Rowena (Claire Davenport II), supposedly to calm his nerves, but in fact, just the opposite happens, first he gets bitten by a spider, and since he can't afford a doctor in his jobless situation, the infection from the bite gets worse pretty much every minute. Then there are indications that the house they live in is haunted. Next Rowena, who's moonlighting as an S/M-prostitute, finds herself on the run from a blind customer (Max Da'Silva) and his homicidal mate (Jenny Sanchez). But what really breaks Dan is when he picks up a hitchhiker (Spirit Phipps) who turns into a cut up corpse in his car before his very eyes. Dan falls into a state of catatonia, but then the blind man and his mate pay him a visit and slaughter Rowena and Chris before his very eyes, and in his state he is just unable to help them, instead is fed their flesh by the evil couple ... but wait, this story might not be true to the fact at all, maybe he himself was the killer, and Chris and Rowena were not even his real wife and sister-in-law but two complete strangers who he has just preyed upon ...


An interesting thriller to say the least that's weird in a David Lynch sort-of-way. That said though, being weird in a David Lynch sort-of-way doesn't equal being David Lynch, and thus sometimes it seems director Ricardo Islas doesn't really get a proper handle on his own oddball script and tries to smooth everything over with a slick yet decidedly uninventive directorial effort, and in the end he tries to explain away way too much with an all-too logical solution.

That all said, Lockout is still a pretty good movie, thanks also to a solid cast (especially Cyn Dulay, who also had her hands in production, is pretty good), given the unusual script though, it could (and should) have been even better.
