'Giallo'-type detective thriller directed by Italian horror maestro Dario Argento. Police detective Anna Mari (Stefania Rocca) becomes caught up in an Internet poker game, only to realise to her horror that the stakes are higher than she could have imagined: if she loses, the maniacal 'Card Player' will slit his victims' throats live on webcam. Irish police detective John Brennan (Liam Cunningham) is sent to Rome to join the investigation after a British tourist becomes involved. But the stakes are raised even higher when the police chief's daughter (director's daughter Fiore Argento) is abducted - and it becomes apparent The Card Player knows Anna better than she thought...
