Trivia

Mae Whitman plays a very similar character in this film as she does in a similarly plotted episode of Criminal Minds (season 5, "Cradle to the Grave"). See more »

Goofs

When Carl removes the corkscrew from his chest, he twists it clockwise and then pulls it out. Twisting it that way would only screw it in farther. See more »

Screamingly idiotic scrapings from underneath the Hollywood cheese counter.
8 October 2012 | by (Under your bed) – See all my reviews

We all like John Cusack. He's a lovable presence, very watchable in anything he's in, and possesses a kind of wiry energy which translates brilliantly to the screen. But he's really squandering the good feeling with "The Factory" and looks throughout like he's embarrassed to be part of something so intensely pathetic and which insults the intelligence of its audience so catastrophically - but you still took the cheque, didn't you, John? Weak...

"The Factory" is set in a world where there's only one type of pregnancy test kit on the market. It's a world in which imprisoned female victims of rape profess undying devotion to their rapist captor

  • and mean it. It's a world in which people are sliced open and drowned


but are okay two minutes later.

I hate myself for seeing this film through until the jaw-droppingly ludicrous final twist. So will you. Please, please, if you have an hour and a half to spare and are considering seeing this movie, you can achieve the same feelings of incredulity and self-loathing for free by standing in a corner and occasionally hitting yourself in the face with a big spoon.
