Learn the rules of “13 SINS” in an exclusive clipMovies/TV,News Michael Gingold
Unimaginable wealth will be yours if you play the dangerous game of 13 SINS, and the rules of that game are explained by a voice that sounds remarkably like Angus Scrimm in an exclusive clip from the new-to-disc thriller.
Making its Blu-ray/DVDebut today from Anchor Bay Entertainment, 13 SINS was directed by THE LAST EXORCISM’s Daniel Stamm, based on the Thai film 13: GAME OF DEATH. The synopsis: “Elliot [Mark Webber] is a bright but meek social services coordinator, drowning in debt and desperate because he’s about to marry the love of his life [TRUE BLOOD’s Rutina Wesley]. Upon receiving a cryptic phone call informing him that he’s on a hidden camera game show where he must execute 13 tasks, Elliot learns he will be on his way to winning a multimillion-dollar cash prize if he quickly follows through with his first two instructions: swat the fly that is currently bothering him and then eat the fly. Although thousands of dollars are suddenly appearing in his bank account, Elliot remains suspicious, though comforted by the knowledge that he can stop playing at any time if only to lose every penny that he’s won. As he leaves a path of destruction behind him and runs away from the law [Ron Perlman], Elliot’s need to complete the game escalates as the tasks grow increasingly sinister, to a devastating point of no return.”
That’s actually George Coe as the voice on the phone in the clip below, and the cast also includes Devon Graye, Pruitt Taylor Vince and Tom Bower. Anchor Bay’s discs include the following special features:
• Audio commentary by Stamm, Webber, Perlman and Graye
• “The Making Of 13 SINS”
• Alternate ending
• Deleted sequence
• “Anatomy of a Meltdown”
