For years, young Americans have flocked to Eastern Europe in search of a “culturally broadening” experience, i.e. hard partying, easy sex and all around general recklessness. However, if there was ever a movie to deter carousing youngsters from such a hedonistic pilgrimage, Eli Roth’s flick would be just the one to do it. After being seduced by beautiful Russian women in a Slovakian disco, three friends — Paxton, Josh and Oli — find themselves in the throes of a sadistic underground torture ring where savagely disturbed rich people can pay to mutilate and kill live humans. That alone should be enough give you an idea that there is some messed up stuff going on this movie, but we’ll continue. Josh gets tortured with a drill before violently having his throat cut, Oli loses his head and Paxton makes it out of the prison a couple of fingers lighter than when he came in. Like we said, it’s messed up.
