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.

The debut feature from writer/director Bob Giordano, THE ODDS is a tense, close psychological body horror. Featuring a principal cast of only two, 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, 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. It makes its international premiere at Raindance.
