    What a twisted, brutal film. Throughout it I enjoyed how artistic it was, but the twist at the end really brought the entire film together for me.

    Revenge is nothing new. Stories of revenge can be found as far back as the Bible and new revenge stories continue to come out every year.

    I don't know what I expected from this, but I certainly got way more than I bargained for. This was a seriously bizarre story and I'm still not sure I understand everything that happened.
