I'm a horror movie fan, and lately I've been very sick of the dredge coming out of Hollywood with very a loosely interpreted genre of "horror".
I initially only watched this because Jackson Rathbone stars in it and I love him as an actor and have enjoyed many of his films. In this movie as well as others he brings a special depth and quirky charm to his characters.
This movie starts rather slow - however the build up is definitely worth the wait in the end. The plot is entirely believable and the acting genuine. Not to mention that there were some moments in this film that I personally thought topped even the most squeamish moments in the "Saw" franchise. This is NOT a movie to watch if you are faint of heart or get grossed out easily.
However this is a completely unique story and I've never seen anything like it before. I love Clive Barker yet I've not read the story on which this movie is based (am definitely putting it on my "to read" list!). As a horror movie it stands out above the crowd as one of the best in years if you've got the stomach for it!
