Jonas Åkerlund's original plan was to use real devotees of suspension - the S&M practice depicted in the film - as the murder victims. However, he soon encountered all sorts of issues with Health & Safety over the spilling of real human blood (an unavoidable consequence of having hooks pierced into skin) so opted for prosthetics instead.

I don't know about you, but when I sit down to watch a horror film, I don't expect to be blown away. My expectation is only to be engaged, kept in suspense, and hopefully scared out of my mind (this last one being of the rarest variety).
This movie lived up to my expectations in all the important ways. My curiosity was jump started in the first scene, and the somber, introspective mood of the story line, spiked with horrific scenarios and sickening plot twists, was exactly what I hoped.
The final twist was too easily guessed, of course, but it didn't take away from the finale - a powerfully emotional scene portrayed very convincingly by Dennis Quaid, who brought his usual energy and charisma to the role.
If you're looking for a quality horror flick or suspense thriller, this one is well worth your while!
