Rating: O (R)
NEW YORK (CNS) — The following is a capsule review of a movie recently reviewed by the Office for Film & Broadcasting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Gruesome horror tale in which a handyman (Josh Stewart) breaks into his employer’s (Michael Reilly Burke) isolated country home, believing it to be empty, but finds that the boss, his wife (Andrea Roth) and their daughter (Karley Scott-Collins) have all been taken captive by a sadistic lunatic, who also has booby-trapped the house with killing devices.
Director and co-writer Marcus Dunstan’s pitch-black painfest leaves aside the fish hooks, barbed wire and bear traps only long enough for a gratuitous teen sexual encounter.
Pervasive gory violence, including dismemberment and torture, graphic nonmarital sexual activity, upper female nudity, some rough language, and a few crude terms and uses of profanity.
The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O — morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R — restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
