Held takes place in a secluded vacation home where Emma (Jill Awbrey) and Henry (Bart Johnson) are attempting to rekindle their failing marriage.
In what appears to be a perfectly normal situation, soon devolves into fear and desperation. A stranger has gotten into the house securely locking all of the windows and doors making escape impossible. Also, the entire house is wired with hidden cameras and intercoms.
The couple soon begin receiving bizarre orders from an unknown intruder who somehow knows every specific detail of their personal lives. He begins forcing them to follow his every direction or suffer severe and painful torture with deadly consequences if disobeyed.
Up to this point, Held is on fairly solid ground. Sadly, it begins changing direction building up plot holes like Swiss cheese. The gore and violence begin to dominate the film, while the initial story premise literally gets covered up in its own blood.
The movie defeats itself with illogical plot twists and a failure to resolve its own questions. We are left hanging with no real closure. The ending consists of Emma (Jill Awbrey) getting into her car and driving off down the road.
What happens next? We’ll never know.
