Void Girl’s review published on Letterboxd:
If it wasn't for the pure shit that came later, this would be remembered more as a genuinely decent thriller with a great ending. I wish Leigh Whannell's character was actually referred to as Very Fucking Confused for the rest of the film, may as well mix in some bad comedy with the bad acting. Bless him for trying though. The way it's put together makes it seem like a really extreme episode of CSI or something. I think torture porn is silly, but I enjoy the trashy mystery charm of Saw. I think you've gotta give them credit, they created a horror icon on a shoestring budget.
Fuck it, I'll watch the whole series.
