Rated R 98 minutes 2007

Torture porn gets the glamour treatment in this America-Russian coproduction shot at Moscow's Mosfilm studios, with some location shots of New York thrown in as bookends. Elisha Cuthbert plays a cock-teasing celebrity model who's stalked and kidnapped by a strong, silent type in a hoodie, then subjected to such degradation and torture as being force-fed human organs and having to shoot her own bichon frise. Although clearly aping Saw, former art-house director Roland Joffe (The Killing Fields, The Mission) also cribs from Psycho and Panic Room. It's not scary because not one second is believable--starting with the idea of Cuthbert as a supermodel. With Daniel Gillies and Pruit Taylor Vince.
