I had a surprisingly good time with this one. It starts off with Anthony Peterson (Ron Thompson) waking up in a large storage container. He has a cell phone that’s not his and he has no idea how he got there. He gets a call and they have his wife. In order to keep her from being raped and murdered while he listens in, he needs to scrounge up 10 million dollars. Something he tries pushing back on. The problem is they know he has it and they know a lot more. Like Anthony actually isn’t a very good man. 10 million in 24 hours or she dies horribly, then they come for him....The soundtrack here is awesome by Tangerine Dream’s Thorsten Quaeschning! It really reminded me of John Carpenter's THE THING at times.
Freddy Beans of ain't it cool news
