Trivia

Originally, in the scene in which Zack tries to cut in line for the bathroom, he is stopped and asked, "Who the f** do you think you are... Tony Danza?" When the movie was released in France, the name "Tony Danza" in that line was changed to "John Travolta" for the French dubbed soundtrack. See more »

Goofs

In the final scenes, the record with the country song, having reached the run-out grooves, changes labels between different shots. See more »

Pretty sick stuff really
25 February 2008 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Im not gonna leave a massive comment about this as im not sure how yet, this is my first ever comment on a title... this film, which i did enjoy for the most part, is an excercise in filming torture graphically, if you have a weak stomach i cant say i recommend it but if you like extreme violence and have a perverse liking for watching others in agony then this might just be your thing!!! the acting is a little weak, the story is as usual very loosely "based on a true story" the maniac is pretty good and believable and the violence is extreme,the scene in the outhouse still haunts me-is that a spoiler? if you liked hostel then you'll probably like this i guess
