The Factory is parent’s worst nightmare

9 Apr

Writer/Director Morgan O’Neill puts together a twisted tale about a police officers (John Cusack and Jennifer Carpenter) pursuit a suspect responsible for the disappearance of several hookers in the Buffalo, NY area over a three-year period. His fixation turns to obsession and anxiety when his seventeen year old daughter is abducted by the kidnapper. Abduction has become a popular theme in films these days because of the recent discoveries of young people being held prisoner as sex slaves. It is a parent’s worst nightmare and the Horror Industry has picked up on this fear for profit. The Factory is an average film with some moments that make you feel sick to your stomach, but the characters are over-exaggerated and most of the performances are mediocre. There are some interesting twists that will take you by surprise, but it’s too little, too late.
