A single mom Kyra returning from a nightout with the girls is abducted and dumped in a room with two other bound women. They’re in the middle of nowhere with no idea why they’ve been taken captive. All they know is they hear women’s shrieks from time to time in another room.

Unlike the other two, Kyra refuses to accept her impending fate and eyes the window in their room as an escape route. It soon becomes clear that the women are being bid online, with the winning bid getting to decide how they are tortured and murdered.

Damn this movie ALMOST did it for me. If they would’ve gone through with the child murder this would be one sick movie

Decent and demented. If you’re into watching people get brutalized and have an affinity for hammers to knees, this will do you just fine.

3/5 STARS -It is worth enduring this film’s torture porn elements to reach the third act which is perfectly paced and, oddly, added some levity to an otherwise brutal gore movie. Some great performances from all of the kidnappers too.

1/5, and those American accents were the most shocking parts of the film.

The fake 5 foot 2 little pussy boogeyman Manson could have never hurt you. The whole story was a lie to vilify hippies that were protesting the Vietnam war. Everyone involved with the BS Manson murders were from military families and they were all paid crisis actors, just like the laughing, smiling Sandy Hook folks.

ok….I’m a hardcore horror fan but THAT…. F*CK!!! at times you just have to remind yourself this is just a movie.
One of the first time I actually considered not continuing watching the last 29 minutes remaining. The knees, the f*cking knees
(sorry about the swearing)

Considered stop watching in the nails fall. A few directing mistakes and dumb moments but, watched till the end. Has some good acting takes.

Probably some of the worst snuff ive seen…. imagine paying for 4 minutes of a guy punching a girl and the camera is angled so you cant even see it. As far as storyline goes, not too bad.

Bah. I was hoping the kid would get it because I am one twisted bish. This was otherwise okay. I just wanted Bad Ending for basically everyone.

I’m afraid I didn’t like this much. I found the bidders most off putting. The torture wasn’t terribly convincing either. And the captured victims whined far too much.

the ending was interesting in that all of this horror can just continue – very matter of fact film which lent it credibility – the lack of any feeling regarding the kid is unusual – u normally get some sense that how horrible someone is they cant go that far

Meh. Pretty predictable, no real significant plot twists, and overall average at best. 2.5/5. There’s a lot better out there, keep looking.

Just glad that the baby survived. Hurting children is a no-no. I understand why the bearded IT guy didn’t go to the local police (bc he knew they were being paid off) but he could have driven to a further one and dropped off the child so he could be safely reunited with his worried mum.

I preferred this to the Japanese red room films. At least there was a plot to follow and it had some nasty scenes and it wasnt too try hard. And the fact it was British and not American. The yanks can overdramatise in some of their films. A solid effort and no bollocks.

I agree it’s fuckin well better,those Japanese ones were kinda weak,this one is actually something to think about too,as I’ve heard from people in the know this exact set up happens on the darkweb,I can’t say as I haven’t witnessed it with my own eyes,but not hard to imagine

I posted something up here the other day about losing sound 1/2 way thru the vid. I think it was removed & a message was sent to me but I have no idea where to see it. I really want to finish this movie!

If your into kidnapping and torture films then Hostel is the better film (imo). That said, this film does have some interesting elements such as looking at the online bidders and the husband and wife owners of the ‘operation’. Definitely worth a watch 3/5 hammers

I enjoyed but would say the acting could have been better. I would not have introduced child murder and then not gone through with it. I also felt the women victims all looked the same and surely thats a business error.
The actual red-room made me think of videodrome which I will be watching for some lighter relief. People who like hammers would probably enjoy – kill list – which is also provided by EUM.
There are however some very nice touches of extreme pain that are too good for spoilers but I am sure nearly everyone had some winceable moments whilst watching.
Normally in films the prop person will find a nice book for the actors to pretend to read but the guard mans book looks blank. Missed opportunity…Spanish for beginners…or…Beauty and the beast.
