Calvin Gabriel: Uhh... we've also experimented with duct taping shrapnel to the outside... and, as far as it's effectiveness, uhh... we can't say anything because we're not testing any of them and we won't be using them until Zero Day.
Calvin Gabriel: So if you really wanna know you might wanna... ask a survivor.

stunning
10 December 2003 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Cutting to the chase: This is one of the most amazing, most intense film I've seen in a long time. The first movie in years that left me absolutely staggered. I could barely feel my way out of the theatre, I was so overwhelmed.

I've been staring at the screen for about fifteen minutes trying to find some way to describe the power of this film, and just failing. Highlighting any one aspect of it -- the documentary-style video diary format, the unflinching portrayal of the events, the force of the characters -- just seems to trivialise it all. Some may find it laughable that any killer could be characterised as normal. But then not all killers are raving lunatics foaming at the mouth. Many are quite regular, unassuming people. They're just wired differently.

And that's perhaps the most chilling thought of all.
