Boring Cannibalism
31 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

American student Katie Armstrong (Keri Russell) is researching cannibal killer Oliver Hartwin (Thomas Kretschmann) and his willing victim Oliver Grombeck (Thomas Huber).

Why Keri Russell is in this is beyond me. I don't mean that a good actress shouldn't deal with this subject matter. I'm talking about the fact that the character puts distance between the audience and the cannibalism. She serves no purpose other than be a buffer from the action. And I call it action in the loosest of terms. This is one boring movie.

This is an insanely boring movie. The only good scene is when Oliver takes out a male prostitute. Even the cannibalism scenes are boring. It's a horrific subject matter. But this is far from a horror movie. Watching this will put you asleep.
