Basically, I wasn't really into this film. There are a couple factors the film itself couldn't help, like the fact that I have a huge soft spot for the 2004 version of The Phantom of the Opera and that I feel that the acknowledgement that it's a Freddy look-a-like was cheesy (and blatant sell out of the similarity on certain posters). Really though....deep, deep down I just couldn't get into it.
Yes, it has gore. Yes, I enjoyed the prosthetics…
I've seen this film about four times, and according to most people, that's 3 1/2 times too many.
I know why I really enjoy this film and why most others don't as well. The premise is original and the characters were great. Though Shiloh is not the best actor, Noah stole the show and plays an engaging anti-villan.
I assume most of the audience can't get past that these guys are using a dangerous, insane naked chick for sex. BUT if you can stomach that, the way they display carnal urges is interesting, in my opinion.
A nice, new rape-revenge movie of the new age.
