Condemned Reviews

January 6, 2016
Like an ensemble Robert Altman piece by way of Eli Roth, "Condemned" compellingly immerses the viewer in an unthinkably grimy, harrowing way of life, then drags one and all into a figurative netherworld where the only means of escape is very likely death.

It's hard to be charitable about Gesner's intentions while his contemptible characters are successively obliterated for cheap laughs.

Unapologetically gruesome and refreshingly twisted, Condemned plays like the bastard spawn of Jaume Balaguer and Paco Plaza's [Rec] (2007) and James Muro's Street Trash (1987).

There are some likenesses to Troma's low-budget brand here, but not enough to carve out a unique voice for Condemned's brand of claustrophobic anarchy.

[Condemned] could have the twisted appeal of Cabin Fever, but by eschewing any sort of realistic character development, it fails to build any of that film's delicious tension and paranoia, leaving it with gore and goo and little else.

After the umpteenth instance of characters slipping on, crawling through, or being coated in human sludge, one grows numb to such shock tactics, and it leaves the proceedings feeling not only inert, but downright juvenile.

There's more to "Condemned" than Penn, but she's a braless, blonde focal point in a picture that's otherwise concentrated on vomit, urine, pustules, and spilled innards.
