Storyline

While driving to her hometown Ovid, Colorado, to visit her sheriff brother Jeff and niece Olympia, Joan Burrows recalls her traumatic experience with best friend Susie when they were teenagers. Joan and Susie, smoking pot in a cemetery, decided to snoop on Bishop the caretaker at the funeral home. Joan falls and hurts her knee, so Bishop, having found them, invites the girls inside to clean the wound. Soon they are sedated with chloroform and submitted to a cruel torture - a sick game where Bishop tells each girl to ask him to kill the other to stop their own suffering. When a copycat killer starts killing Olympia's classmates, Joan tells police that Bishop is back (or someone who looks just like him) but nobody believes her.

Goofs

In the beginning when the newspaper clipping are flashed onscreen, only the titles are edited. The content under the titles has nothing to do with the movie. Palestine, NASDAQ and the Internet Technology Association of America are a few examples of the real topics of the article titled "Young heroin Joan Burrows grateful to be alive; sorrowful", for example.

If you know SAW & HOSTEL, you'll know what to expect.
14 April 2009 | by Jan StrydomSee all my reviews

Lets just say I won't be leaping out of my seat and saying this is the most awesome movie ever, although I did like the movie and it did have a few unnerving scenes that were tough to look at especially if you're squeamish, what I mainly don't like is that its just another addition to the ever popular torture porn trend, if you look at films like SAW & HOSTEL, this will pretty much seem like a by the numbers gore fest, that doesn't offer anything new except a collection of gore and some painful torture scenes, which are painful actually.

The concept itself is pretty good, there was definitely a lot of potential there, and the acting was above par for a film of this standard.

Its good because it certainly has the concept, but in fact its not that great because if you know SAW & HOSTEL, which I'm sure every horror fan knows, this one will feel pretty much by the numbers.
