Did You Know?

The chemicals being collected, Adrenaline, Dopamine, and Oxytocin, are released when the body is in extreme pain. But like Sam suggested, they're also released during sex. So instead of torturing themselves, the members of the group could've just had sex with each other to fill up the vials.See more »

Torture Porn Lite, 28 October 2014
Author: gavin6942 from United States

A group of friends stop to pick up a hitchhiking woman only to end up getting drugged by her with a gas. They awaken to find that vials have been implanted in the base of their skulls - which are, of course, instantly fatal if they are removed.

A film where people are forced to torture each other? With the dubious reason that brain chemicals are being collected? While there is some cleverness to this latter part, the former boils down to yet another title in the never-ending "torture porn" subgenre of horror. And no one wants that. Of course, viewers should not be surprised when the cover is a pliers holding a tooth.

If there is one redeeming thing about this film, it is the inclusion of Maynard James Keenan as Special Agent Ford. But, to be fair, the torture aspects are stronger in the first half and there is some attempt to bring out the humanity in these folks. Does that make this is a good movie? No. But it could be a lot worse.
