Gruesome, but on the whole rather boring
1 October 2012 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

Awakening to find themselves trapped in an underground bunker with no way out, a group of people find themselves subjected to an experiment in food deprivation to determine the effects of hunger on a person, and begin slowly loosing their humanity.

A pretty dismal and really uneven entry, this one doesn't have all that much going for it. Beyond the initial appearance and trappings of a torture film, the particular area of study conducted by the madman dictates that hardly anything at all even happens in this one as they sit around talking to each other or attempting escapes while they're being watched over, letting the film seemingly go on forever with absolutely nothing happening or even getting any kinds of answers to questions since the lead psycho never utters a word and all of the notes undertaken don't come off legibly. While it does have some grisly, realistic violence and gore shown here, the fact that this is more of a human psyche study than an out-and-out carving up of the human body, it's not as suspenseful, chilling or even creepy as it stands and really only serves those looking for the deeper meanings while those looking for more traditional efforts will be utterly bored and disappointed.

Rated R: Extreme Graphic Violence and Graphic Language.
