- Obsessed with teaching his victims the value of life, a deranged, sadistic serial killer abducts the morally wayward. Once captured, they must face impossible choices in a horrific game of survival. The victims must fight to win their lives back, or die trying...
A story that's so ridiculous you'll at least be entertained by the outrageous plot contortions to come.
Spoiled by its own insatiable desire for envelope-pushing flair; its wider-scoped when it should be intimate, splashy instead of subtle, icky but not scary.
The slasher scenes, though relatively few, are amazingly evocative for such a low-budget movie.
Less a classical narrative than an ingenious machine for inducing terror, rage, and paralyzing unease.
Horror fans will find plenty to shriek about. Everyone else should keep their distance.
A crude concoction sewn together from the severed parts of prior horror/serial killer pics.
But humans who live above ground, including horror fans, will find themselves only fitfully entertained and more consistently appalled.
Boasts an undeniably original premise and clever plot machinations that lift it several notches above the usual slasher film level.
