After introducing his desensitised cameraman friend to a scene of numbing terror, and a helpless young woman tied to a chair in his filthy basement, a depraved serial killer starts committing acts of sadistic torture, taking great pleasure in hurting her. Then, when the nightmare is finally over, the depraved duo embarks on a killing spree in the streets of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, abusing, beating, dismembering, and killing all those unfortunate enough to cross paths with them. Of course, the camera captures everything on tape. Written by Nick Riganas

what the hell
1 June 2007 | by bjguaySee all my reviews

what exactly is the point of this movie?

I just watched a little of it, and at first I was obviously disgusted. It's not hard for me to believe people watch stuff this extreme, but I at least would like to know what the point is. It wasn't even entertaining or scary, just disgusting. The director might as well try making real snuff films. It's obviously his real passion. Another question would be why exactly there's a minimum of 10 lines to a comment. I hate reading long comments anyway. But anyway, I guess i see films like hostel and the saw movies and I thought that was extreme, and then there is underground stuff like this going on. Sooner or later there will end up being real victims in movies. I mean honestly where can they go from here? I guess we all do wanna see things that disgust us and scare us to some degree that cant be denied, but I mean how far are we willing to go?
