Trivia:
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 »

Lives up to its name and then some, 9 April 2013
Author: in1984 from United States

At least the opening scene should have a subtitle "inspired by Dexter the TV series". While the basis for the plot is new and interesting and also has the Human Centipede/Saw gore feel to it, the actual setup to the point where the horror/gore begins is horrifyingly weak.

The actors help make the film bearable, and Maya Hazen is awesome. While the characters may seem stupid beyond belief or unrealistically smart in some cases, after watching a film like Compliance that's based on real life idiots, it's best to simply take it all in. They usually tie into the overall story and are better than screaming stupid naked teens running off in all directions from bigfoot, big fang, etc. In short, the stupidity typically fits into the situation and is part of building the suspense/agitation.

There's apparently a new category developing for films that annoy along side horror, tragedy, sex, and comedy. This is a combination of annoyance and standard gore. That may not be a good idea for an entire film.

This also works as a story in what not to do. It does give you points of satisfaction to offset the gore, plot development stupidity, and other annoyances as if those are all pains to achieve the gain. It's horribly disappointing that opportunities for titty twisters were missed. The writer and director are in desperate need of a sense of humor.

FYI, my rating may be a little harsh and I'm tempted to up it to a 5, but don't bet your collar bone on it.
