This horror thriller has some impressive people behind the scenes. It's written by Larry Cohen (Phone Booth, Maniac Cop, It's Alive) and directed by Roland Joffé (The Killing Fields, City of Joy) ... but played-out torture porn is still played-out torture porn. Elisha Cuthbert ("24") stars as a young woman kidnapped by a mysterious psycho killer who has locked her in a basement and surrounded her with a series of sadistic, life-threatening traps. This one rips off Saw almost to the letter, but forgets to put in most of the gore, leaving viewers with nothing to look forward to but the utterly predictable "twist" ending. 85 minutes R.
