Wow. The whole movie gave me an off-putting vibe, and I found the beginning relitavely slow, but the final act was absolutely phenomenal! Rarely has a movie made me cringe so hard, or made me feel sick to my stomach at parts, but this did the job. A definate must watch, and now I want to read it as well!
EP¡C. a soothing cure to a morbid fascination in the pain of psychosis in others demonstrated through induced fear.
enjoyed the plot and representation of ones demons , thought it was much deeper than sheer retribution or self justification. great if your looking for a movie that plays on psychosis and the evils that can lay within the human mind!
I forgot how bad this movie was. The main character is an asshole and the whole "I've been traumatized/hurt so I have to hurt other people more" is a poor and overused driver for plot.
Deeply unpleasant, but not for the right reasons. The bones of Barker's excellent short story are there, but it becomes a grind rather than a thrill by the midpoint and doesn't really find a way out from there.
