Series / The Confession

Go To

A web series about a hit man (Kiefer Sutherland) who goes into confession, and confesses his sins, but he is unrepentant, and the priest (John Hurt) can't shake off the feeling that the guy is here for a specific reason, but can't figure it out.

Tropes seen in this film:

  • The Bad Guy Wins
  • Confess in Confidence: Naturally.
  • Cruel Mercy: Done twice. Once with the corrupt businessman, and the other with the priest at the end.
  • Advertisement:
  • Dark Secret: Played straight with the priest, inverted with the confessor, who is very open to the priest about his evil. He does have a secret but it's about a time he showed mercy to one of his hits.
  • Driven to Suicide: The businessman, and the mother.
  • Hiding Behind Religion: The Confessor accuses the priest of doing this.
  • Karma Houdini: The Confessor doesn't pay for his crimes, and will continue to kill, with the priest watching from the sideline, helpless to stop him or tell anyone else.
  • No Name Given: The Confessor and the priest don't have names.

How well does it match the trope?
