    Stupid torture trash. Why do people like this crap? Better to throw it in the can and watch The Loved One. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0059410/

    An actual, intelligent black comedy and a landmark film.

    I dug it. Is it original and fresh? Hell no. But no one bitches about slasher or zombie films that are just clones of stuff we've seen a million times already, why not a torture film that doesn't break ground? It was fun and fast paced. I doubt I'd buy it, but it was a fun way to spend 90 minutes on a Friday night (The Ballast Point Tongue Buckler Imperial Red Ale helped things along too....)

    I really enjoyed it too. I rented it at Blockbuster and it was the rated version. Is there much of a difference in the unrated cut?

    Someone on the Blu-Ray.com forums said that the UK Blu-Ray can be made region free by the top menu button trick.

    Can anyone here test this on a PS3?

    Gave this a second try finally after really enjoying The Devil's Candy. Unfortunately my opinion didn't really change. I didn't find the females villain all that interesting and felt the torture went on too long with not enough payoff. Good soundtrack though. It's still just ok to me.

    Finally caught this. It's on Prime if you haven't had a chance to watch.

    I really enjoyed this. I thought it was a lot of fun. Original it was not, but I don't give a shit, entertaining flick from start to finish.
