Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A high-concept/low-impact twist on torture porn, The Killing Room will likely do its slaying on DVD."

‑ Tim Grierson, Screen International

‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"Brutal, daring and utterly unpedictable - three qualities quite rare in movies these days."
‑ Larry Carroll, MTV
