  • 2 stars "I don´t get the hype and cult status of this movie. The final plot twist makes no sense. How could the killer pretend to be dead without any move, without needing to piss, without visibly moving when he was breathing? Sorry for spoiler kids, but at least you see it´s not worth your time. The atmosphere of ugly filthy celar or what it was is the only good part."
  • 1 star "Badly contrived. Plot holes you could fly jumbo jets through."
  • 5 stars "Best thriller, gore movie ever made!"
