Goofs

When Ted tells Jake the means of the first murder in 'the game' he says that Jake did it with "you mixed ethanol and nitric acid with the alcohol [sic]; probably a flavored alcohol to mask the bitter taste..." This is incorrect. Acids are well-known to be sour in nature (eg, lemons are sour due to citric acid); bases are bitter.

Even worse, the mixing of ethanol and nitric acid results in a reaction that gives off nitrogen dioxide, a toxic gas, and the reaction is so highly exothermic that it can result in an explosion. You can see what really happens by doing a quick search for the two ingredients on YouTube. See more »

worthwhile psychological thriller
4 April 2008 | by nunyabiz1973See all my reviews

After seeing an advanced screening, this film honestly delivered more than expected. Not being a fan of the gruesome torture-porn films so wide-spread in recent years, nor of the writers previous film (utterly ridiculous, in my opinion), I had reservations going in. Not in regards to the abilities of the cast, but as to how the concept of the film would be handled on the screen. The first 10 minutes, while well done, gave me pause as to whether the filmmakers would get beyond showing how extreme and outrageous they could be to an actually engaging story. In the end, I found the graphic and brutal nature of some of the scenes to support the development of the story and it's well drawn characters as well as the effective exploration of the darker potentials of the human psyche. My final impressions were of the solid performances of the cast and how the film was able to accomplish making the outrageous and often twisted ways of its characters seem both natural and plausible given the context of the story. I highly recommend giving this film a shot, even if it isn't a genre you'd typically see.
