Critic Reviews for The Killing Room
A high-concept/low-impact twist on torture porn, The Killing Room will likely do its slaying on DVD.
Going out on a limb to say I like this one. Interesting plot, though highly unlikely...even during the Bush Administration. A fair amount of suspense as well. Paul Chambers, CNN.
Brutal, daring and utterly unpedictable - three qualities quite rare in movies these days.
Unremittingly gripping and unnerving, The Killing Room transforms a simple premise into an almost unbearably tense experience.
One feels a sense of gratitude when a horror-thriller even bothers with unexpected divergences or surprises that feel relatively satisfying.
Audience Reviews for The Killing Room
I really enjoyed the concept of this movie, but the way it was executed and portrayed was just boring and uninteresting enough to make it a good movie.
A rather simple and poor thriller. I can't believe Clea Duvall has such a small part. Similar to quite a few films, although I wouldn't say it's like the Saw films. It's more like Cube, House of 9, The Experiment.
A triumph from Director, Jonathan Liebesman. An intensely entertaining and utterly unpredictable edge of your seat thriller. A brilliant, taut, twisted, stylish and electrifying film. A great movie. It's a knockout. A heart-pounding, bone-chilling and relentlessly exhilarating psychological thriller that delivers pulse-racing suspense and keeps you guessing right till the explosive conclusion. It runs on fear-fuel as well as gut-wrenching terror. The cast all deliver riveting performances. Theirs some surprisingly strong work being done by Timothy Hutton, Nick Cannon and Shea Whigham. Peter Stormare gives a chilling and gripping performance. A solidly crafted film with a lot going for it. A gripping and compelling nail-biter that delivers unbelievable tension from beginning to end. This film is an experiment...in awesome and works well.
