| Boring, bland, cheap, predictable. The only real torture is to the viewers....
There seems to be a recent trend of low budget movies where the "action" takes place in one room/location and is focussed on 2 main actors for virtually the entire 90 minutes. This is one of those movies.

It's fair to say there isn't really much of a plot. In fact, the entire movie is a bit like watching two students in a method acting class being held in a dimly lit room. While there is an element of torture horror, it is very predictable and adds nothing to the "plot". If you're a gore fan, you will be disappointed.

Sadly, Mischa Barton's total screen time amounts to around 5 minutes of cutaway scenes - I'm guessing she turned up on set for no more than a couple of hours at most as a favor to the director.

In summary, if you enjoy serial killer movies, you will have an infinitely more enjoyable experience watching old episodes of Criminal Minds.
