Movie Review: Redd Inc. (aka Inhuman Resources)

Red Inc. Movie PosterBy Marcey Papandrea,

While looking back at my viewing for this year, I have seen a lot of genre films, and actually I have seen a lot of really good ones. I had been surprised quite a lot this year, and I wasn’t sure if anything else this could do that. I was proved wrong with Redd Inc. (Inhuman Resources is the US title), not only did this film surprise me, but also it is one of the best genre films I have seen this year. This is a great film, not just a great genre film, there is so much to enjoy and embrace here.

Our storyline here is very intriguing, with a setting that is very brave and it works like a charm. Six people wake up chained in an office, to desks by a man named Thomas Reddmann (Nicholas Hope), an escaped killer. His aim for these six people is not to hurt them (unless they disobey) but for them to prove his innocence, something which may or may not be possible. They must work under his demented reign, and are given warnings when they don’t do as he has asked. This is the best I can describe this film without entering into spoiler territory, there is a lot going on here and the fun is watching it all unfold and play detective with the mystery at hand.

It begins with a bang, and our first glimpse of Reddmann is quite maniacal. It probably helps that he is played by Bad Boy Bubby himself, and from the get go I was glued to the screen. It is apparent early on that there is a lot at play, and things cannot be seen as they are presented. I was actually reminded of the ‘giallo’ style with this, and I had memories of The Bird With The Crystal Plumage, which does such a great job with that element. It is a film where you need to wear your detective cap, the audience is basically like one of the six chained to the desk. It isn’t often these days that a film really can bring the audience in like that, and Redd Inc does it in such a perfect way.

This film has so much going for it, and those things are used to their advantage. It is a film that contains gore, and this is practical stuff that had the expertise of Tom Savini supervising. It looks … well juicy, some of the best stuff I have seen in recent years. Between how great it looked and the amazing sound design, I found myself actually cringing over some of the violence. Now I can watch anything, I don’t generally cringe unless brains or eyeballs are involved (I am just sensitive to those things), so it was quite an experience to see a film that made me wince and cringe. Heck during both my watches of A Serbian Film I didn’t even have that reaction, yet there was that something special with this film that did. All these elements just came together for the perfect mix, and I just have to applaud everyone involved for a job well done.

I can’t lie; one of my favourite things about Redd Inc was Nicholas Hope. I really do have a lot of love for the man, he is best known for Bad Boy Bubby, which was one of his first roles. He has this amazing talent of really bringing forth a character and embracing it. I didn’t see Hope the actor here, I saw the character of Redd, he embodied the role – talk about a perfect fit! I felt there was a great rapport between actor and director Daniel Krige, an understanding that bleeds through. I also do have to mention Kelly Paterniti as our main victim Annabelle; she shone right through. Her character could have easily been a cut away, but thanks to being written so strongly and followed through by a great performance, we actually care about her. It certainly wasn’t an easy role, and a lot was required of her, this woman pulled it off perfectly. Major props to the rest of the cast with Sam Reid, Alan Dukes, James Mackay, Hayley McElhinney and of course Daniel Krige as Guy.

Redd Inc really is a great film, I just can’t stress that enough. Those involved have done a phenomenal job, with such an awesome and brave script by Anthony O’Connor (you can find our interview on the site) and Jonathon Green. Having a film set in an office location was ballsy, and these guys just knew how to make it work. This could act as a bit of a nightmare for those in office jobs, that metaphor works wonders. There is so much right about this film, a great beginning, middle and end, and an amazing pace to boot. I can’t wait to sit down and watch this again, you can’t argue with a film that has major re-watch value!
