Poker Night


When you become a detective in Warsaw Indiana - you go to Poker Night, where you play against some of the best cops in the business. They tell you stories about their time on the job - their successes and failures. When new Detective Stan Jeter leaves the game, he is caught by a vicious psychopath and locked in a basement. Using the stories he heard at Poker Night, he must match wits against his captor - and save not only himself, but the young girl trapped in the basement with him. Like Seven and Usual Suspect, Poker Night combines thrills and twists and turns that will leave you guessing till the very end.


  • This mash-up of cop thriller and torture porn features some clever twists and provides the opportunity for some terrific characters actors to strut their stuff.
  • The players are good, with Mirchoff earnest and young as a nice contrast to the salty, rough-and-tumble elders, especially the iconic screen heavy, Perlman.
  • Poker Night is a blend of genres, including those of: horror, crime thriller and even comedy. Poker Night is well produced. From acting to directing styles, the film is made of quality. It is also interesting to see so many recognizable cast members here, including: Ron Perlman, Giancarlo Esposito, Corey Large and Lochlyn Munro. Director and writer Greg Francis must have pulled several strings, to bring together such a great cast.
  • Greg Francis certainly shows a strong hand with Poker Night, providing a fresh alternative to cop thrillers and horror slashers by smashing the two together in a Frankensteined effort. While Perlman entertains and Mirchoff guides, it's Eklund who walks away from the table boasting the biggest stack thanks to an immersive turn of villainy that makes Manson look like a candy striper. Poker Night is a cool, calm, and confident thriller with a few aces up its sleeve that'll keep you guessing, achieving a wild freshness that typical horror thrillers might skimp on – a case of ambition yielding surprising rewards.
  • I suggest checking it out if you're looking for something unique.
  • Poker Night is one of the more memorable thrillers to come along in years. Featuring a capable cast having fun with their supporting roles, Poker Night will keep you guessing until the end with its startling twists and turns. Could this be the birth of another horror franchise?
  • Half Reservoir Dogs, half Saw, with a splash of over-the-top Natural Born Killers thrown in for good measure and you get the wonderfully entertaining and equally disturbing Poker Night. The acting is generally top-notch, the story moves at a brisk pace, and the ultimate resolution is a satisfying one. Oh, and you'll never look at superglue the same way ever again.
  • I knew very well that Poker Night was going to be a great film just by viewing the trailer a time or two, but I didn't know how great it was going to be. There were tons of twists that no one could see coming, keeping me enthralled in the action the entire time. If you're looking for the next hidden gem in this genre, this is it, for sure.
  • Decent brutal and bloody fun, a somewhat intriguing mystery and a powerful cast composed of numerous extremely talented individuals. It also has some hilariously twisted moments, reminiscent of a demented dark comedy, and a number more sequences that are grisly, intense and quite well done.
