Deserves credit for trying to mine some relatively intelligent chills out of something different, topical, and primally disturbing.

Lynch...presents nuanced, sepia-tinged menace with a clear and determined eye.

Jennifer Lynch, daughter of David, does the filmmaking equivalent of drunkenly totalling dad's prized Ferrari.

[It] will likely find favour with horror audiences looking for something more thoughtful than another instalment of Saw.

Filmmaker Lynch (daughter of David) knows how to push our buttons, using misogynist violence to keep us uncomfortable right through this contained, stylish thriller.

In this claustrophobic cabbie horror, Jennifer Lynch makes us captive passengers as she traces a chain of domestic abuse to its bitter Oedipal end.

Chained is silly and nasty at the same time.

Impressively directed and superbly written, this is a chilling, thought-provoking horror movie with a pair of terrific performances by Vincent D'Onofrio and newcomer Eamon Farren.

Plenty nasty but singularly lacking in clever new twists on a weary genre.

A grimmer-than-grim tale of murder, incarceration and mayhem.

Not for the faint of heart or the weak of spirit, and probably not even for fans of more traditional horror films... this is a grenade lobbed into a genre that desperately needs its bones rattled.

It boasts no character insight, social commentary or discernible overall point to counter charges that this is just a redundant wallow in arted-up, torture-porn cruelty.

It certainly makes for a traumatic watch.

Lynch's brutal 'buddy pic' takes some very dark turns, culminating in a walloping twist of a coda. Whether that twist is actually necessary or relevant - and I'm still undecided - this is a bleakly claustrophobic film about the ties that bind

Chained is confronting cinema like we rarely see, even with its share of hiccups.
