Gory thriller about two strangers (Cary Elwes and Leigh Whannell) who awake to find themselves chained in a subterranean chamber and learn that their imprisonment is part of a serial killer's macabre mind game. Directed by James Wan, the film starts off well, but after an intriguing first 20 minutes, any hopes of suspense are dashed by a stomach-churning barrage of stylized sadism parading as entertainment, which nosedives from lurid to laughable in the final reel. Much graphic violence and recurring rough and crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
