Routine torture crap
13 December 2012 | by Zbigniew_KrycsiwikiSee all my reviews

Cute girl and her friends go to a party at a subterranean back alley club, only to realise it is the hunting ground for a sadistic killer in a black body stocking. The police force a survivor from an earlier attack by the killer to help them find the girl and stop the killer. Once they find the building's location and enter, we, the audience, endure nothing more than a combo of Saw II, and Cube, with only some occasional visual flares and good set designs, and cute Emma Fitzpatrick as one of the leads in film's favour.

Idea of the torturer injecting his victims with enough drugs to turn them into wired killers themselves was unusual' but overall the film ranges from cruel and sadistic one minute, to boring the next, and it climaxes with a routine "victim-becomes-the-killer" ending, and its brief 82-minutes runtime seems much longer than it is.

Filmed in Jan./ Feb 2011, unreleased until Dec. 2012, and it's easy to see why. It is interesting to note also, how many people don't even realise this is a sequel to anything.
