Did You Know?
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
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.
Oh, I get it.
worthwhile psychological thriller
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.
