Plot: An ultra-paranoid murder suspect videotapes himself around the clock so he'll have a rock-solid alibi if he's ever accused of another crime. But the one tape that could prove his innocence of a new murder mysteriously disappears and he's forced to go on the run to fabricate the evidence of the missing hours...

Traumatised by his arrest and near conviction for a series of brutal murders, Sean Veil (Lee Evans) has become a true paranoid. Convinced that sinister figures led by a criminal profiler are determined to fit him up, he has spent the ten years since his acquittal video-taping his every waking and sleeping moment so he'll have a rock-solid alibi if he's ever accused of another crime. But the one tape that could prove his innocence of a new murder mysteriously disappears and he’s forced to go on the run to fabricate the evidence of the missing hours...

A conceptually original and visually distinctive contemporary thriller, FREEZE FRAME is the feature film debut of writer/director John Simpson and stars Lee Evans (MOUSE HUNT; THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY; THE FIFTH ELEMENT; FUNNY BONES). Currently on stage in ‘Endgame’, and soon to star in THE PRODUCERS, Evans plays Sean Veil in a genuinely career-changing performance. Winner of the coveted Perrier Award at the Edinburgh

external linkHowever, the narrative does not have the films aesthetic ingenuity and visual punch; after the first hour it becomes desperate and rather silly. Credit due though to writer and director Simpson for having had the confidence to create such an unorthodox British film - he is certainly one to watch.

external linkA fast-moving, contemporary thriller with a deep and disturbing resonance for the paranoid world in which we currently find ourselves.
external linkSignals a talented newcomer in writer-director John Simpson and boasts a gripping central performance from popular British comedian Lee Evans.
-- (Variety)

external linkRepetitive and ultimately a victim of its own hysteria, the U.K. indie is nonetheless an impressive exercise in high-tech gothic style, with a convincingly deranged Lee Evans.
--Sheri Linden (Hollywod Reporter)

external linkThis nastily efficient thriller from British newcomer John Simpson offers a low-budget, high-tech expression of the idea that just because you're paranoid doesn' mean they'e not after you.
external linkOriginal, ultra-paranoid, enjoyable thriller with a surprisingly good straight performance from Lee Evans. 3/5
