Top cover girl and fashion model, Jennifer Tree has it all - beauty, fame, money and power. Her face appears on covers of hundreds of magazines. At the top of her game, Jennifer is America's sweetheart. She is loved and adored and sought after. Everyone wants her. But someone out there has been watching and waiting. Someone wants her in the worst way. Out alone at a charity event in Soho, Jennifer is drugged and taken. Held captive in a cell, Jennifer is subjected to a series of terrifying, life-threatening tortures that could only be conceived by a twisted, sadistic mind. It follows the story of one woman who is abducted and tortured, held against her will in a place where days turn into weeks. Written by After Dark Films

Trivia

The initial advertising campaign for Captivity featured a multi-paneled poster. The first panel was labeled "Abduction," featuring actress Elisha Cuthbert appearing petrified, her mouth covered by a black gloved hand. The second panel was labeled "Confinement" and showed Cuthbert behind a chain-link fence with a bloody thumb poking through. The third was labeled "Torture" and featured Cuthbert on her back, her face hidden within a white cast and red tubes going up her nose. The fourth panel was labeled "Termination" and featured what appeared to be a limp body hanging over a table. The poster was placed on several billboards across Los Angeles, causing a significant uproar and resulting in many complaints. Distributor Lionsgate - who were not involved in the film's advertising campaign and claimed to know nothing of the poster in question before the posters were distributed - and producer After Dark Films ultimately decided to remove the controversial poster from the advertising campaign and took the billboards down.

captivity
3 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

i watched this film last night and to be honest with you i wish i didn't i would rather watch paint dry than this awful film. basically the director or writer have stolen there ideas from saw 1,2 and 3 but made it less violent (what is the point).One good thing about this film is the acting which is good and the characters make it there own.I really do wish these people that make these films could come up with at least 2 to 3 original ideas rather than steal there ideas of other producers. story line is lame and is just boring , you can predict right from the start whats going to happen, i plead with you all out there do not waste your time on this movie. thank you for your time ocd productions (fool)
