Did You Know?

Trivia:
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 and The Hangover.

Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Ted is performing Gwen's autopsy, the entire time the body block (under her neck) is left in place which would have made the autopsy difficult. Usually the pathologist will place it under the back, causing the arms and neck to fall backwards to stretch and push the chest forward to make it easier to cut open.

Quotes:
Jake Gallo: [before explosion] Oh, I get it.



User Review

worthwhile psychological thriller

Rating: 8/10

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.
