Top cover girl and fashion model, Jennifer Tree has it all - beauty, fame, money and power. Her face appears on covers of hundreds of magazines. At the top of her game, Jennifer is America's sweetheart. She is loved and adored and sought after. Everyone wants her. But someone out there has been watching and waiting. Someone wants her in the worst way. Out alone at a charity event in Soho, Jennifer is drugged and taken. Held captive in a cell, Jennifer is subjected to a series of terrifying, life-threatening tortures that could only be conceived by a twisted, sadistic mind. It follows the story of one woman who is abducted and tortured, held against her will in a place where days turn into weeks. Written by After Dark Films

Trivia

The film was heavily re-shot to turn it from a thriller to a torture/horror film. This is extremely evident in Elisha Cuthbert's hairstyle. It changes throughout the movie. In the first shoot her hair was more of a shag style, while in the re-shoot it is all one length. Her hair often changes in the middle of scenes (e.g. running from one room with a shag style but entering the next room with different hairstyle.) See more »

Goofs

Right after the car goes forward and rams the garage door, the view from inside the car when it starts to back up shows an undamaged door. See more »

ending change
24 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at a test shoot. I thought it was alright. I think it is good that the main character is played by someone who isn't emaciated. She actually looks like a real person, although she is playing a model. There was not as much gore as I would have thought. I read they are re-shooting parts to make it more gory. I think the set is really cool. It looks like a cellar but it has a lot of random technology in it. The two people who are captured scratch messages back and forth to each other with the lighting it is a cool visual effect. I thought the twist was played out well, I think if the movie was a bit faster paced it would have worked better. I think it was worth seeing, but i'm really curious to see what changes they made I heard the changed the ending which I think could be really cool.
