This felt like two horror films in one. The first 45 minutes or so were great - an exciting, suprising, twisty film. The film couldve ended thier and been a good (though short) horror.

The second half of the film felt like its sequel, and like all(?) horror sequels it wasnt as good. It ties up any loose ends and then goes off in an intriguing and quite different direction. However the route it takes is unrelentingly brutal and not as good as what came before.

First half 7/10, second half 5/10.

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.

I'm surprised at all the hate - modern horror masterpiece 100% - best we've had in many years.....

Really really bad. Starts off as a slasher genre piece and descends into pseudo-intellectual philosophical crap.

Yes, that was my thought too

It wasn't that explicit. Hellraiser shows more than this movie.

Well, I admit I had a very hard time sitting through this one. Even at a point I had to pause the movie to regain my mental strength.

Intensely nihilistic and sadistic. It's not out to give you a lecture or leaven things with humour - just straight horror from beginning to end. And I think the point it makes at the end is reasonably well done - pain and horror can be transcendant for the watchers of horror films and this is conveyed through the metaphor of a cult of pain.

There are certainly problems with the third act, which wobbles badly with too much exposition, lessening the feeling of terror by explaining things, but overall this stands as an important and very good, though flawed, achievement in horror film-making.

Let me put it this way. There are things that I cannot un-see in this movie.

The second half was rubbish. But I think it's worth seeing just for the first 15 minutes.
