How far would you go to get revenge on the man who raped and killed your little girl? In the tradition of the horror masterpiece The Last House on the Left, this Canadian nail-biter that premiered at Sundance shows a doctor (Claude Legault) kidnapping, tying up and then methodically extracting every drop of justice from the vile criminal he is convinced did that horrific deed. The hostage (a very creepy Martin Dubreuil) begs and pleads and insists he's innocent...only to turn around and boast of his crimes, perhaps in the vain hope that the nightmare will end sooner. But the not-so-good doctor has told his wife and the police and the world he will not relent - for seven days.

Daniel Grou's gripping 7 DAYS centers on a successful surgeon whose world is torn apart by the murder of his eight-year-old daughter. The father embarks on a quest for revenge against the perpetrator of this heinous crime, and in a game of cat and mouse with the police detectives assigned to the case, he successfully kidnaps the accused murderer as he is transported to the courthouse. With the roles now reversed, this father-turned-predator drives his prey to a remote cabin, where seven days of unspeakable torture await. He even keeps the police apprised of his plan, vowing to turn himself in after the execution of this alleged monster. Director Daniel Grou (aka Podz) does a masterful job of immersing the audience in this dark and gritty world, deftly capturing the psyche of a sane man gone mad. Far more than your average torture flick, 7 DAYS is an eye-for-an-eye tale that is chock-full of tension, suspense and inner conflict.
