Goofs

In the first round, Lambrick asks if the players would rather electrocute themselves or another player. Lambrick makes the common mistake of saying "electrocute" instead of "shock," because "electrocution" only happens when the victim dies from the electric shock; otherwise, the person is just getting shocked.

good idea. not as good execution..
30 December 2013 | by Philipkenyon1998See all my reviews

When I started this movie I wasn't expecting too much. I thought I was going to get a badly acted run of the mill horror. But as the movie progressed I started to find myself getting invested in the plot and the main character. However, my new found hope for the movie was tarnished when it came to the torture itself. There is so much more that could have been done with character development and plot but it just seemed like it couldn't be bothered. It turned into a movie where you could predict every move up until the end.

To me it kind of felt like hostel where if more time and effort had been taken it could have been really good and got the audience invested but sadly it was not the case.

When watching a film like this I kind of hope to see the torture at hand but this movie lacked in this aspect. Advertising a movie as horror and torture and not providing it is disappointing.

This isn't a terrible movie by any means but it isn't exactly good. If you want a sort of popcorn flick to watch with some friends by all means give it a go but this isn't a movie that stood out to me at all.
