(at around 1h 00 mins) After Von Geisler uses the pliers on the back of Alex's leg, he laughs and uses the phrase "Arbeit macht frei." This phrase, loosely translated as "work makes you free," is the infamous motto that was posted at the front of Nazi concentration camps during the Second World War, and still hangs on the Auschwitz concentration camp museum entrance today.

If you like the slasher genre, specifically the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, you'll like this. This film has the same atmosphere of dread, of bad things about to happen, of bad people on the way to do bad stuff. It takes a lot longer to get to the gory part, so don't be discouraged by the first 45 minutes or so of drama. Once the killing, maiming and screaming start they don't let up.
I found it to be considerably bloodier than Texas Chainsaw Massacre, with about the same amount of suspense. There are a couple of moments when you're hoping the characters aren't really going to do what you just know they are going to do: those "ouch!" moments right before the bloodshed.
If you're tired of the slasher satire films and ready to get back to some old fashioned blood and gore, this one is for you.
