scariest thing I've ever seen
9 May 2005 | by (San Jose CA) – See all my reviews

oh my god... i am a huge fan of nine inch nails, and have always wanted to see this... and i finally have, and nothing has ever left me more disturbed... after watching it, i felt very uncomfortable, and it got to me in a way nothing else ever has... genuinely frightening... i would love to see NIN do more stuff like this... maybe a WITH_TEETH movie???.... but nothing could be as scary as this movie... i don't think I've ever seen anything this scary... the torture scenes are brutally honest and will leave you breathless and wanting to wrap your arms around the person you love more than anything and keep them there forever... clearly inspired by the olden days Texas Chainsaw Massacre-esquire style and story and clearly influenced other simmilarly themed movies like House of 1000 Corpses... very very scary....
