    The end result doesn't even satisfy on its own sleazy terms. Not only does it lack the satirical nihilism of the "Hostel" films or the admittedly clever torture machinations of the "Saw" series, it doesn't even provide its target young male audience with the requisite nudity. show more

    Quite possibly the final word on a much-maligned genre. show more

    Captivity is torture porn without the sex. Cuthbert squirms, screams, weeps and pleads for her life with great conviction. Slick, sick sleaze. show more

    I enjoyed this movie I watched it around 1:00 & ate popcorn. This movie was not really a horror movie it's more of a..... I Don't Know this movie was very good! great ending, great acting, this was a good / gross film.

    While this type of movie has been done to death (like most movies today)...it was a solid watch. It picks up after about 20 minutes. I did not regret spending 9 dollars on it.
