Plot – Spoilers:
Three volunteer doctors in Kosovo are preparing to leave when they find themselves lost in uncharted country. Stopping to ask for directions only sees them being shepherded towards a Serbian gang involved in organ trafficking. The three are held captive in cells and the only thing left to wait for is the death-toll of a telephone down the hallway that announces a buyer is on the way. Suitable inmates are then wheeled into a room from which they emerge eyeless and ribs spreadeagled.

The film was controversial among Serbians who claimed political bias with allegations of funding from Kosovo that resulted in Serbians being portrayed as the perpetrators here, when allegedly, history suggests they were in fact the victims of Kosovo-Albanian gangs.

it was solid… maybe a bit pure luck at some points for the main character

she should have brought a weapon from the surgery room or the kitchen or at least the wire cutters but didn’t. also pure luck how that piece of wood was just at her reach, and how they found them in the middle of a corn field. gore was nice, wish it had more. also did the surgeon put the heart in a plastic bag? also the surgery room looked so fucking dirty. it can’t be practical. and why put the girl and the guy in one cell anyway?

I gave it a 3/5. Pretty decent storyline, interesting characters and gore originality.
Skip at 1:09:45 if you’re distressed by animal torment.

Not sure why you guys rated this so low. This is a good one. 4 stars from me. If you haven’t watched it you should. The next paragraph has spoilers in it so don’t read it before you watch it.


I really like this one. It turned in to a revenge flick which is something that I like. The cruel, sadistic doctor with the menacing looking ridges in his forehead and the sugar bowl haircut turns out to be the biggest pussy when he gets a little cut on his neck and drops dead in 3 seconds (my favorite part). The prison guard bully who gets a thrill out of inflicting pain gets a tap on the head, drops to his knees and is all done in no time. The toughest one was Mama Cass in the kitchen making dinner. I wish the bug-eyed creep in the cornfield suffered a little harder but it was still good. There was some stupid stuff that happened here and there, like when they are running away from a mob of murderers and he throws their only weapon away in to the woods or when Carole stabs fat old Mama Cass and doesn’t pocket the knife, but overall this turned out to be a really good movie. If you read this part before you watched it I warned you.

Good movie. A bit slow to start with and if you’re a real gore hound looking for all sort of fucked up shit you’re not going to get it here. BUT. it’s a solid movie that still leaves you wondering and somewhat on the edge of your seat for a while there.

Wow, some actual comments about a movie, thats a first. Just proves that there are some intelligent people on this site and not just trolls and supposed pedos. I know I will get hammered by their comments, but I dont really care. Happy viewing.

Excellent movie, As dark, Bleak & Jarring as the subject matter it was based on, This period in Europe when this war was happening spawned some of the most brutal war crimes, I remember seeing the reports as a kid in the 90s & some of the aftermath on the most early real gore mix tapes from the late 90s & some is fetured in the movie/documentary EXECUTIONS. Harrowing stuff.
