A 9-year-old boy and his mother are kidnapped by a serial-killing taxi driver while at the movies. Mom is quickly bumped off and the boy, now named Rabbit, spends the next decade in miserable servitude and terror. Rabbit’s captor is relentless in his efforts to tear away the last vestige of ‘being alive’ that Rabbit stubbornly clings on to – his own humanity.

Directed by Jennifer Lynch (daughter of David Lynch), Chained is a psychological riptide in the middle of all those questions that seek to answer – Can a psychopath be made and if so, can some resist?

Wow! I am definitely speechless….. The ending was a shocker! Very disturbing and sadistic! I don’t know if I could trust a taxi anytime soon. EUM, you guys are the best! Thanks for including this new video, I would recommend anyone to watch it.

Well all I can say is it you get into a private minicab make sure you check the taxi serial number on the outside of the cab matches the one inside the cab & have your mobile phone handy to ring 999 or 911! I’ m 53 and when I was 17 I got a taxi home around 2am and suddenly he went passed where I.lived & he stopped talking altogether.Suddenly.I found myself being driven to abandoned dockland area & after I asked him to where the f* co he was going & was ignored I decided to overpower him & all 5 ft 10 of me kicked off screaming and kicking until .heard the door lock release and I ran hell for leather like Usain Bolt home & collapsed shaking when I.got through the door ! …
..35 yrs later and diagnosed with MS ,I got a Hackney cab ( considered far safer in the UK) home & noticed the driver checking me out in the mirror so I got him to drop me off 2 doors away .About 40 mins later there was a ring on my doorbell,looked through the spyhole to see the driver & I opened the door with the security chain on thinking I’ s left something behind in his cab.The guy had a strong Nigerian accent but I could make out that he was saying he wanted to come into my home for a coffee & ‘ get to know me better’ ..then I realised he had his foot blocking me close the door …I.got my walking stick & handle first slammed it into his shin & he was down my path & away in his cab in seconds !.I reported him to the cab company who said they’d ‘ had some complaints ‘ and to the police…put .edu off using a cab for years ,I do a triple number check now before even getting into one .

OMG, that’s so scary. I know a lot of cabbies take the long way to make more money, but when I notice that it scares the hell outta me. Same thing happened 2 me in Mexico, but luckily w/o the combat. Ppl are awful. Glad ur ok.

Jesus, you would think being 50 year old with MS would be enough of a turnoff but nothing stops these jungle bunnies from wanting coffee and cookies huh.
If I was gonna chance a prison sentence I at least woulda chosen a firm late teens-early 20s “girl”. Not someone needing a fucking walking stick yuck!

Now I can understand why the killer didn’t really want to hurt the kid. The near ending explains it all. It brought me chills from start to finish. Great movie EUM! Two Thumbs-Up!

heyyy you posted one of my suggestions. Love this movie! Vincent is one of my favorite actors in recent memory! I know Im not supposed to post suggestions here but Listening 2014 by director Khalil Sullins is another excellent movie. I mean as far as blood and guts go there isnt any there, but as far as whats happening in the real world today this movie hits home.

It’s a good movie. pretty original. There was a reason behind the madness of the killer which is revealed at the end. Too bad it took langer than 15 years for the kid to grow some balls despite what he went through. That said, the Killer could’ve just told him, use his anger to exact revenge. He probably woud’ve became loyal. That, and coupled with Stockholm syndrome.

That was quite good. Didn’t expect it to be, especially the twisted ambiguous ending.

I really liked the movie, and it was really good. The sad truth about this, is that it can and it probably happens a lot irl, with the criminals never being found out. Lots of missing girls cases never resolved and etc.

Is incredible, how all those mentally disturbed potential criminals are out there in the streets, doing whatever they want. There’s always some kind of trauma or trigger, involved in their motivations, and of course, sexual related too. Guess people should be careful while being around men that shows their resenment towards women or people in general, or some weird sexual fantasies. Those always turns out to be a total danger to society and people.

Well, not all criminals have traumas. Like this one, the man who hired the killer driver probably wanted the insurance money for missing wife and son. He’s just being an asshole sociopath, because if not, then he should’ve at least get a professional help or try to be a good man in spite of his past experience.

This was so great. Really enjoyed a lot of the strange dialogue, far better acting than most mainstream captivity films. This is gonna stick with me for a while. Thanks so much for having this film in hd!!

Rabbit, this kid needs so much hug. QAQQQQQ

Such a great plot twist at the end of the movie.

BTW, what happened now to Angie? Also, I think it needs some incest tag here for that one forced scene with the killer driver and his mom(?).

I really like this movie. Great acting- D’Onofrio’s weird speech impediment was a great touch. Great directing, good job little Lynch (the cameo in the TV commercial was a nice touch).

The guy could have killed the kid, but instead takes him in under his wing, gives him a roof over his head, feeds him, only to be betrayed. What an ungrateful little shit. The only language kids understand these days is back of the hand language. Good movie, but that kid Rabbit will make you want to punch babies, disrespectful little piece of shit.

Exactly, the kid had just lost his mom for Gods sake, he didn’t know how good he had it! Vince shoulda just let him end up in the system, then the kid MAYBE would’ve realized “Hey, maybe I didn’t have it so bad with nice man after all!” But probably not, when you’re that ungrateful and self centered nothing is ever good enough, and everyone exists just to please you. Fuckin psycho kid, makes me sick
