Like most brave thrillers that delve into very dark places, '7 Days' is not so much "fun" as it is fascinating.

This first feature from Daniel Grou, which recently premiered at Sundance, has much to offer.

Torture porn goes philosophical in this meditation on the emotional and psychological toll of vengeance.

Director Grou lacks the gene for sheer, bloody exploitation, he also doesn't know how to rack up the tension and get under viewers' collective skin.

7 Days is a brutal, passionate and precisely drawn refutation of a standard-issue cinematic revenge picture, containing harrowing and visceral scenes of violence side-by-side with delicate moments of recognizable humanity.

Brave the violence and see a filmmaker in utter control of a story we thought we'd seen done too many times to appreciate all over again.

Grou's thriller tells a deeply immersive story that at no point strays from its intended path & delivers with such a punch that you'll be talking about it for 7 days after.

In directing this torture porn, Daniel Grou is intent on dismissing the doctor's oath, 'primum non nocere,' and he does that quite well.

Perhaps not quite torture porn but undeniably torture drama, 7 Days is one of the most gut-wrenching and disgusting things you could order On Demand all year.

I found myself noticing the room tone above all else, which may be a testament to the sound guy, but it's also a testament to how engrossing some other aspects of the movie aren't.

Despite the blood and gore, 7 Days is a cut above the usual splice-and-dice horror festival, but it's not for the squeamish or fainthearted.
