    Alyssa Milano is a delight, but her ten to thirteen minutes of screen-time mark her as more of a distraction than substantiation.
  2. A particularly nasty slice of medical-themed horror, Marc Scholermann's film is the sort of thriller in which the tenderest scene depicts an autopsy.

    It takes a certain genius to make butchered corpses, sociopathic lunacy and meth-fueled debauchery nerve-scrapingly dull, and German director Marc Schoelermann and screenwriters Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Crank) possess it.

    Extremely awkward. Plot development is empty and the acting is nothing special, which is the overall feeling of this movie...nothing special. Just another gruesome, gory, and violent movie trying to mask itself with a mildly interesting plot. By the end of the movie you find yourself saying "Why am I watching this?" Full Review »

    Why 6? Two reasons: First, that's only a 6 in the Horror genre, which, being genre, is always going to be thin. If you're a Horror fan, it's worth seeing. Second, there aren't enough movies depicting the thin, psychological line tread by medical folks between caring and detachment. The problem with this movie is the scenes supposed to bring the viewer to this conclusion are hamfisted. The most bungled being the easiest to pull off - two buildup scenes where the "hero", already teetering on that edge, is supposed to be disgusted by the inhumanity of humanity. This makes his later descent into over-the-top debauchery seem just exploitative. Could have been so much better, but I think it's worth recognizing their attempt. Full Review »

    This movie is only to be watched by guys. Excessively VIOLENT. Not much of twist or interesting ideas.
