    From the Trivia section of imdb:

    "The quote "King Kong aint got shit on me" is a reference to 1930s King Kong"


    Fascinating.

    Why is there a picture from the original Clerks on the poster? Don't make no sense.

    If you don't like this movie, you probably just have a case of the Mondays.

    "Hi, Eli Roth. We're gonna remake Cabin Fever. Got any ideas for it?"

    ★★★★

    This movie really honed in on so many cultural fears of the time. The movie speaks to a post- 9/11 fear of foreigners, a post- Abu Ghraib fear of torture, a universal fear of creepy eastern Europeans. To write this off as "torture porn" is about as lazy as criticism can get and strengthens the old grampa views of Roger Ebert that anything bloody is void of artistic merit.
