A woman trying to escape traumatic memories from her past finds history repeating itself in this gory horror story. Joan Burrows (Brittney Wilson) was an ordinary teenager growing up in a small Colorado town until she and a friend were abducted by Ernie Bishop, who ran the local funeral parlor. Joan and her friend discovered to their horror that Ernie was a violent lunatic who performed elaborate torture rituals on young women, and while Joan was able to escape with her life, her friend was killed.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As one character asks, "It never stops, does it?" Well, no. Not as long as people keep paying to see such dreck."
‑ Michael Ordoņa, Los Angeles Times
"I'd read about this one for three years. Then I saw it and forgot it immediately."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"The acting is more wooden than the numerous coffins, the plot a rehash of any crazed serial killer flick you care to mention, with extra torture. It's unremittingly nasty stuff."
‑ Wendy Ide, Times [UK]
"Despite it's technical savvy, this pans out as merely the latest in the dispiriting procession of torture porn movies while the dreary identification of the perp doesn't raise the excitement levels much higher than a half-hearted game of Cluedo."
‑ Tim Evans, Sky Movies
"This kind of torture porn is beyond bad taste."
‑ , Sun Online
"To make a 3-D 'torture porn' movie is at best opportunist; to make one with flat, boring torture scenes is unforgivable."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"The perspecto-effects are a real letdown, while the pacing and performances are as flat as roadkill."
‑ , Empire Magazine
"Another week, another yucky horror film with a title that sounds like "Saw". This one's in 3D."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian [UK]
"The result is humourless, implausible and lacks a single original idea. There would be no reason for this film to exist, were it not the first live action feature shot entirely in HD3D."
‑ , Total Film
"This boasts of being "a first of its kind 3D movie event", but it's just the same old torture porn tarted up."
‑ Anthony Quinn, Independent
"The sole high point? 3D tits. The porn industry is going to love this technology, presuming you don't mind wearing stupid dark glasses while masturbating."
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"This nasty, witless and hopelessly dated effort is still a landmark release. Think of it like the first dog shot into space, but don't forget it is an absolute dog."
‑ Matt Glasby, Film4
"Despite the killer's slavering way with a scalpel, there's no blood spurting out into your near-vision, just a lot of hopeless acting in your face."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"If you make the mistake of going to see it, I recommend taking a spoon so you can scoop your will to live off the floor at the end. Derivative, dull and with a daft ending, even the 3D's not much cop."
‑ , Daily Mirror [UK]
"Run of the mill, largely predictable slasher movie that unfortunately squanders the 3D gimmick that could have made it interesting."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
