Due to disturbing behavior throughout - including violence, gruesome images, strong sexual content - the first theatrical trailer of the movie was digitally altered. It showed operation scenes without human organs, also Milo Ventimiglia's hands digitally erased in a love scene. But the later Red Band version was released without any alterations.See also Into the Blue (2005) and The Hangover (2009). See more »
(at around 45 mins) When the doctors slam the Asian man's corpse into the wall (on the gurney), it is clear that the actor puts his hands up defensively before he falls. See more »
After seeing an advanced screening, this film honestly delivered more than expected. Not being a fan of the gruesome torture-porn films so wide-spread in recent years, nor of the writers previous film (utterly ridiculous, in my opinion), I had reservations going in. Not in regards to the abilities of the cast, but as to how the concept of the film would be handled on the screen. The first 10 minutes, while well done, gave me pause as to whether the filmmakers would get beyond showing how extreme and outrageous they could be to an actually engaging story. In the end, I found the graphic and brutal nature of some of the scenes to support the development of the story and it's well drawn characters as well as the effective exploration of the darker potentials of the human psyche. My final impressions were of the solid performances of the cast and how the film was able to accomplish making the outrageous and often twisted ways of its characters seem both natural and plausible given the context of the story. I highly recommend giving this film a shot, even if it isn't a genre you'd typically see.
