Grand Piano

I caught this fun and weird little thriller featuring Elijah Wood, Kerry Bishe, and John Cusack last October at the Philadelphia Film Festival and it is now available on Video on Demand.  Wood plays a concert pianist who receives a disturbing note during his concert, and needs to follow certain instructions ... or else.  Playing out in real time, this movie feels like a mix of real time thrillers like 'Nick of Time' and 'Phonebooth' but played out like an episode of 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents'.  It's not a must see but it's a fun 90 minutes you can watch in the comfort of your own home on Video on Demand.

Grade: B+

Who is this movie for?  Fans of thrillers that take place in real time and those suspense anthology series like Alfred Hitchcock Presents.
