Ruth Chandler: One sound down here and I promise I’ll kill the both of you. Not just punish you, kill you. Dead.
Dark, dark movie, that is pretty much torture porn, no matter what aspirations it has to be something more meaningful. Certainly disturbing, but the period setting adds a layer of hokey artifice to the events, the main antagonist tries way too hard to act, the actual torture doesn’t seem to come with any plausibility, and the film almost entirely avoids real resolution.
