A Horror Film That'll Stick With You!,
This review is from: Chained [DVD] (DVD)
When a film is about a murderous psychopath who kidnaps a young boy, chains him up and over the course of several years and countless murders, attempts to teach him to follow in his killer footsteps, you know you're in for a hard to watch film. This brilliant directly and acted film is however, rather light on the gore. It's definitely not torture porn, which it so easily could have been. Instead, what we have with Chained is a film that disturbs you through story and character rather than gross out moments. Watch this film and it'll get into your head for weeks.
Vincent D'Onofrio is fantastic in the lead and puts in one of the best performances of his entire career - matching Full Metal Jacket. If you're a fan of films such as Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer and are looking for a movie that is both shocking, disturbing yet enthralling, I'd highly recommend this one! It's a rare thing for a horror film to have a powerful impact on you emotionally, rather than grossing audiences and Chained does it fantastically.
