This is a faithfull and solid adaption of Jack Ketchum's brutal masterpiece, which was based on a true story. Could be deeper, but satisfying nonetheless Not for the squeamish.

This movie is not an easy one to watch, but it is just as gripping and disturbing as the book, and blance baker as ruth was phenomenal.

Don't listen to stodgy critics - this film is a powerhouse on all levels. Terrifying and tragic, it sucker punches the viewer and leaves him with a film experience he'll never forget.

Yes it is unsettling and vile, but it is supposed to be that way. This movie feels like Stand By Me and It in certain ways, while also bringing strong scenes that truly reflect the terror these kids experienced. The movie was filmed quite well and has excellent production quality, along with strong acting from the lead actresses, and decent child acting. The character of David was a standout performance in relation to the other kids. This movie starts by showing how innocent and kind Meg is, then quickly begins to show the abuse. The abuse can seem pervasive at times, perhaps dragging on a bit. I think the physical violence was fairly mild compared to what it could have been. The movie focused mainly on the psychological torture elements more, showing the kids strength and will to live. Overall very good but disturbing 8/10 Expand

Makes the Hills have Eyes look like Marry Poppins. It's not an easy film to watch but if you can get past that, it's good

Two main flaws make the film way less shocking (and good) than the book: the way the movie was directed, in which the director didn't mind excluding essential parts of the book in order to get to the good stuff (the girl's torture),which madeTwo main flaws make the film way less shocking (and good) than the book: the way the movie was directed, in which the director didn't mind excluding essential parts of the book in order to get to the good stuff (the girl's torture),which made it all the harder to enjoy. And the child actors who were HORRIBLY unconvincing (except for the two sisters). The highlight to the film though, is Blanche Baker who was the most interesting character of the film. Expand
