The masochist Elizabeth lives a marriage of convenience with the cynical, sadistic and reckless playboy Victor, who is the heir of a huge inheritance including the mansion where they live. She is the lover of Victor's lawyer and best friend Roman, but she can not divorce Victor since she signed a prenuptial contract that would leave her with only $10,000. Roman plots with Elizabeth to poison Victor with an experimental drug, but it fails and Victor is completely paralyzed without dying. During his autopsy with three medical students, Victor awakes from his comatose status, and totally deranged, he seeks revenge using his torture chamber. Written by

I almost gave up on this movie, it seemed like a drama going nowhere. After almost getting bored with the minimal acting some action kicked in with unexpected humour. Just when the laughs were rolling it turned into a gory horror movie. I gave it what for me is a pretty high rank just because it was able to switch so quickly and keep my attention. If you got an hour and half of hanging out with some friends who are OK with some gory scenes but are not big fans of movies devoted to gore-genre but want a taste of some gore with some humour thrown in then this is the movie for you . Don't watch for an emotionally enriching experience or to be challenged by the plot.
