It's a good movie.
26 August 2014 | by jrdnycSee all my reviews

Have you seen Martyrs (2008) by Pascal Laugier, because you definitely should, but also because he directed this film too.

The Orphanage (2007) obviously took a few cues from here.

I'm only writing this review to save people time.

If you enjoy Pascal Laugier/Guillermo del Toro type movies then you have every reason to check this one out.

Wikipedia also says something I find very interesting about Laugier. Apparently he "was set to direct the remake of Hellraiser but was later taken off the project due to creative differences with the producers; Laugier wanted his film to be very serious and explore gay S&M culture, whereas the producers wanted the film to be more commercial and appeal to a teen audience." Wow, too bad, that would have been brilliant. Instead, they chose to make a Hellraiser for kids who enjoy watching the VMAs. Lol
