This film shows a world that most people will never ever see. It blasts you into this intense, horrible, psychological nightmare. Thinking of what it would be like to be a part of this facility creeps me out.
The acting is top class and there are loads of familiar face that make you laugh when you think of them in recent films ha ha.
I don't want to give anything away but if you like harsh movie you will love this one! things like KIDS, Doom Generation, Thirteen etc Great movie 10 out of 10.
This film had made me want to watch more of the directors works. If this is his standard then im sure i will not be disappointed.
