Despite having been completed, and having had its theatrical trailer attached to several widely-released horror films in 2007, the film was eventually pulled from release without any official explanation. It was later given its first official limited release seven years later in 2014, when it became available as a "Video on Demand" title through DirecTV. The film was finally granted a DVD and Blu-Ray release through Shout Factory three years later in late 2017- ten full years after its initial planned release. See more »

Instead of listing the actors and their respective characters, the credits only have a big "Featuring" section (in alphabetical order) with the names of both the actors and the characters they play. See more »
Rather than a cheesy rip off or mindless moronic gorefest this film takes a terrifying concept and gives it a body. The effects are slightly low budget and but very powerful when combined with the psychological effects of the story. Without going into detail, somethings are slightly off and open small holes or just seem pointless altogether. But they are few and far between. "Ed" the Killer is portrayed very well as a psychopath with sociopathic tendencies.
The torture videos themselves are not nearly as disturbing as the underlying theme that someone could actually do this. A real breath of fresh air in a genre that seems to be nothing more than retreads of the same garbage. The blood is minimal and the film relies on the tone to frighten and disturb the viewers. It really is a shame that this film didn't make mainstream.
