From the movie poster and the hype it generated, I expected unneccesary gore and a real slasher movie so I wasn't really looking forward to watching it. I'd already put it down as a "nonsense horror movie" but I was pleasantly surprised. Clever story, creepiness all around and a brilliant twist near the end. I really liked it! Here's me hoping the sequels won't ruin it ...
Watching the acting was as painful as the tortures on screen....
Excellent horror, sadly with absolutely horrible sequels that purely play on shock value and revolting gory murder traps. Watch only this one and do yourself a favor, forget the others.
