Not entirely sure why people are reviewing this film so very poorly. If you've ever seen an Eli Roth movie, you know what to expect, which essentially is that it's kind of cheap, lots of blood, lots of gore and a few awkward laughs thrown in here and there on a modest film budget. I found this to be no different. I loved Cabin Fever and I knew what to expect after Hostel so should others not know this, too? Should they even be reviewing this film if they had no idea what they were going to be watching? I don't think so. I don't go into Resident Evil expecting it to be Hotel Rwanda and, if I did, I wouldn't then review Resident Evil on IMDb because it wasn't the Hotel Rwanda I was expecting. Just a thing to think about when you read these reviews, folks.
In any case, the film was pretty much what I expected. It's a little cheesy, a little quirky, ample blood and gore (although maybe not enough for the torture porn crowd), some uncomfortable rape scenes and plenty of Eli Roth atmosphere. Generally, I found it was a decent flick. It's a little dark but has moments that will make you laugh, too. It's not going to set the world on fire or win any grand awards, but if you know what to expect from Roth and/or are a fan of this type of film, you'll find it enjoyable enough, as I did.
