Yum yum !!
21 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

What WOULD you do if you were stuck in a underground room with four other people for a month, with all the water you could drink but nothing to eat? Considering the irritation level of the individuals here, perhaps I wouldn't wait until starvation set in before killing them all. And I'm pretty sure you'd be driven even more insane than what is depicted here. But still, if you ever wanted an accurate representation of cannibalism, here it is in all its unflinching glory.

Reminding me of an old Keira Knightley flop called The Hole and about a million other films where innocent people are abducted and forced into obeying the whims of a sadistic 'mastermind', at least this one has a bit more depth than most. We find out about the history of this manipulative psycho, and the final denouement is ingenious to say the least. It's still VERY generic in tone, but it could have been much worse. Just eat before viewing... 5/10
