A review by manwhonose

By manwhonose

This is definitely one of the films to see before you die. It's seat-squirmingly unsettling, shocking and very violent.

It's a journey into a truly disturbed mind; a mind, which - like yours will be - is unable to cope with what it discovers.

This film is brilliantly twisted. It has a thread of the most wonderful, blackest humour running through it, a sense of complete disorientation and enough plot twists and turns to sustain your interest.

Not one of the best revenge thrillers I've seen - simply THE best!
