Raindance Closing Night Film: The Odds

A woman enters an underground endurance competition, hoping to win the million dollar prize and turn her life around. As the increasingly punishing rounds progress, she finds herself entangled in a sadistic, manipulative game with no way out.

First feature from American writer and director Bob Giordano, The Odds is a tense, close psychological body horror. Featuring Abbi Butler (County Line) and James J. Fuertes (Silver Twins) as main characters, it serves as a powerful allegory for domestic abuse and delivers an agonising viewing experience, culminating in a thrilling final sequence. Giordano keeps the action up-close and personal with a minimal set, holding the audience rapt with gripping performances and claustrophobic cinematography.

The Odds has received multiple awards in the last few months including Best Horror Feature Film at New York City International Film Festival, Best Actor in a Feature Film at North Hollywood Cinefest and the Graveyard Shift Audience Choice Award at Nashville Film Festival. 

The Odds makes its international premiere at Raindance.
