Vile

6/10 - Torture porn's a bit tired now, but this was actually a reasonable example - though some aspects didn't really make sense. Why would the counter wind back when someone dies? The chemicals should still be good... And why wouldn't you just kill the lot of them once you've got your batch? There's no profit in leaving survivors.

Wouldn't give this more tha 2/10, utterly dreadful - walked out after 45 minutes and i wish i'd left before that. Worst film of FF so far and im sure it'll still be the worst by the end.

2/10 from me as well. My worst film of the weekend (even Inbred was better than this!). I thought it failed on just about every level as a torture porn effort. Why did everyone just accept their fate after watching the woman on the video screen? Why didn't they at least try to break a few boarded up windows to see if they could get out? Why didn't any of them seem that irritated by the contraption attached to their brain on the back of their head? Why was the Saw 2 style 'plant' so obvious but none of them could see it? More importantly, why didn't I just put my head down and catch some much needed shuteye until it was all over? (I would have left early and had an early night if I hadn't had a bunch of mates expecting a lift home in the car after). Woeful.

I hate to say it, but this film would have been better if there had been more violence and gore in it.

Apart from the idea of collection vials this did nothing for me other than sing Therapys? 'Dopamine, Seratonin, Adrenaline' song (which, like this film, there a far better example of their 'genre').

Of course it would, the only thing that kept the Saw sequels vaguely interesting was the extreme gore and the fact they kept being inventive with the gore. This was just a crappy Saw clone with no gore, and it made you realise how shit the Saws would have been minus the gore. And factor in the crap acting, twattish characters, unexplained set up and unoriginal plot, and it all adds up to a complete turd. I thought Choose from the Halloween all nighter was the worst Saw clone I'd seen, but Vile outdoes even that in the crapness stakes.

I don't remember that Therapy? song being played, I must have walked out by then, I love Therapy? but I hate that song, but I guess it's fitting they chose a shit song for a shit film.

It wasn't played in the film, it was in my head when they were banging on about what neurotransmitter's they collected.

At least in the film they mentioned that those hormones are released during sex too, they could have gone whole hog with the torture porn, but no, they felt the need to go the 'morals' route instead.

'Saw' wannabe that was largely ineffectual. I could see why this was in the graveyard slot. The hard choices to be made did at least maintain some interest, while 'the bitch' getting her comeuppance got one of the loudest cheers of the weekend! However, I felt the rationale was silly, the acting ropey and the plot stale. 6 / 10
No tears, please. It's a waste of good suffering.

Thought it was just alright this film

Liked the idea there was countdown and how much pain someone has to go through for making perfume.

Silly but watchable.

It's not very good. Not as bad as some were saying, but really it's time to think of something else other than just having people hurting one another for narratively thin reasons.
