    What started out feeling like a bad, British response to Wolf Creek, ended up feeling like a bad, British response to the already bad, American films; Captivity and Amusement. Bizarrely, while doing some research for this film, I found nothing but praise. It was low-budget, which is usually enough to find that everyone hates it, whereas I don't. In this case, it was a strange reversal, I hated it (not because of its cheap production values) because it was boring. The film is supposedly based on a "true story", but listening to an interview with director Adam Mason, it turns out this "true story" goes thusly; There was once a killer who dumped his victims in the woods. This movie is in the woods. Also the killer has characteristics that many other real life murderers could have. Yep, "could" have. So it's "based on a true story" in the same way that Titanic is "based" on the life and times of Marco Polo... You know... 'Cause there was a boat. I'd just like to reiterate that this film was woefully boooring. Because I believe that it's probably the worst thing that a film can be. Movies are, after all, filed under the category of "entertainment", so what sort of entertainment is it if it's not in the lest bit entertaining!? There's a couple of okay-ish things about it. The killer's not too cliched, although he's so obviously based on Jigsaw, and not any real life killer. Also I think that happy endings are a cop out, this film does not contain one, so points there. But honestly, when you only have 2 characters, it'd be nice to see some damn character development! There's very, very little to this movie, so already I'm running out of things to say. This is not to somehow be mistaken for a compliment. Broken was just plain bad. Ending and beginning aside, there's nothing at all to it, other than annoyance. Ridiculous amounts of filler, it made me wonder if the guys behind it had any idea what they were going to do when they started rolling the cameras, it seemed more like "Ahhh, shit uh, um, you don't like this guy Ms. ActressLady, just run with it! And you! You're scared, so, be scared? Scream, yes, just scream, that can be your entire role for the next 20 minutes, only scream!" Boring. Boring. Broken. The only reason I didn't feel this film was a complete waste of time, was because I stopped paying attention half way through and started drawing a puppy. So it was only a waste of half my time. 11% -Gimly

    I just couldn't wait for this film to be over, it was stupid, she was stupid, the young teenager makes more sense to scream! Not missing much if you don't watch it!

    This was good, but could have been a little better. And there were things that would or would not have happened. Like the razor blade in her stomach--which reminds me of Jigsaw. The more she moved, the more it would have cut her inside. And her broken leg would have turned out much, much worse. Of course if she had knowledge of herbs, she would have known how to use them against him, and for herself, if they were all growing nearby--or perhaps persuaded him into bringing their seeds, and beginning a harvest. The impression I got from the trailer was that her daughter was much older. The screaming girl was very annoying before her tongue was cut out--I thought he would have done something worse to her. Why did the woman hesitate to kill him when she had the chance? Seducing him was a foolish mistake. In the end she should have known better and used her head. She should have tried to think like the man when she saw her daughter in the shed, and expected the unexpected. I would love to do some research here, to find out more about what really happened. Who? Where? When? How many people did he kill? Were there really any survivors? But I wouldn't know where to start.

    There are some good shots, it gets a little slow in the middle. But the ending is pretty messed up. It says it?s based on true story. There is a scene with a log, and a razor blade stitched into the body.

    It's a bland movie with some interesting parts and gruesome moments and plenty of bad acting.
