The only reason I didn't give it a perfect score was the fact that it took a long time to get to the real meat and potatoes of the film. But once it got there, the film was one of the best of the year and I can't wait to see it again when it comes out theatrically. Unfortunately, when it comes out it will be a heavily cut film and a lot of the intense scenes will lose their punch, especially during the final 15 minutes which I must say has some of the craziest stuff you'll ever see in a movie. The acting was great. The gore effects were great (and should be improved once everything is colour corrected). I found some scenes to be way too darkly shot and you couldn't some of the neat stuff that was on display. And one last thing, everything you've heard about the level of violence in this movie is true, It is ultra graphic and very disturbing stuff. I won't give away any of the plot cause doing so would ruin the experience.
PS. I'd definitely not recommend this as a date movie
