Synopsis: Moments before his comeback performance, a concert pianist who suffers from stage fright discovers a deadly note written on his music sheet.
Release Date: March 7, 2014
Thoughts: Taking more than a few choice notes from the likes of Hitchcock and De Palma (Passion), I’m hoping that Grand Piano is better than it looks. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a taut thriller set in a confined space where our lead had to figure out a way to escape death without tipping off the killer but I’m not sure if Elijah Wood has that everyman quality that made Cary Grant and James Stewart so appealing. The trailer also makes the mistake of giving away the identity of protagonist which could be a risky move if there are no more surprises in store. Arriving On Demand before a theatrical release, this is one that may go down easier from the comfort of your own couch.
