    You can dress this up as much as you like and put a bow on it, but it's still just torture porn. 4 years ago

    Ok, I agree that this movie last hour was a complete change in direction from the past hour and that for the most part the "martyrs religion" was nonsensical but the ending was perfect, just the best possible.
    Also, I don't think that this was so gruesome or violent like some say, "Human Centipede" was grosser and Funny Games was much harder to watch.
    The worst thing is that I was bored many times and this doesn't have any rewatchability.

    One of my all time favorite horror movies, and the most disturbing movie I've ever seen. The acting is fantastic, you care about the main characters, and it genuinely terrified me. You can call the second half pseudo-intellectual and pretentious, but I disagree. It's a movie about pain and what people will do to justify inflicting pain on others. The villains have a motivation. The characters might be pseudo-intellectual, but not the movie itself. spoiler 2 years 4 months ago
