The Dark Hours

Lean, smart, and relentless, this Canadian nail-biter by director Paul Fox recycles familiar plot elements but twists them into a psychological pretzel all its own. An officious psychiatrist (Kate Greenhouse) takes time off from her work at a treatment center for violent sex offenders to relax with her husband and younger sister at a country house, where they're captured and terrorized by an escaped patient (Aidan Devine) who has an ax to grind with the doctor (literally). Sadistic games follow, though screenwriter Wil Zmak focuses mostly on the war of wills between doctor and patient, which is freighted with all manner of secrets. 76 min.
