Among the worst films I've ever seen.
4 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Caught this movie on TV and I can't remember a movie I enjoyed less.

It's so bad, it defies placement in any genre. It's hard to call it a horror movie when it lacks any suspense or call it torture porn when it lacks gore. Other things lacking from this film include plot, character development, and competent acting and scriptwriting.

The reviews calling this a character study are way off the mark. Caring about a character's moral choices requires characters with moral agency and an audience that's invested in the story enough to care about the choices made by the characters. These characters are nothing more than objects to be used in a sadistic fantasy.

If you're thinking about watching this movie, don't. There's a long list of things you'd rather do.
