too long, and boring, 1 June 2011
Author: trashgang from Midian

The same people who made the hyped "Grotesque" are behind Death Tube. If you read my review on Grotesque then you know that it wasn't my cup of tea. Death Tube has the same problem for me. First of all, it takes a bit too long to watch, it clocks in at almost 2 hours. It is a combination of Saw and Cube. There are puzzles to be solved like in Cube, if you can't do it you die. And the people who designed Death Tube are disguised as did Jigsaw. But the solving of the puzzles take a bit too long. The best part is the last reel but then it's too late. The teddy bears (the jigsaws we can say) are annoying after a while and there is too much of blah blah in it. Due the reason that it takes so long it is even low on blood and doesn't really contain gore. The first minute, the beheading, is really okay but after the opening credits it really is low on everything. Sad, it could have been a bitter rougher and more like a snuff flick. Clearly to see it was low budget. can't say any more, have to leave you know to watch You Tube...
