w Delta z (WAZ, 2007)
Advertised as “harder than Saw”, compared to Hostel, and a cover that pretty much looks like another Saw sequel… A thriller is the last thing you expect. Yearning for blood and torture, I quickly got very very bored and tired. There’s a serial killer, targeting couples (not always romantic ones, also relatives). One dies by electricity, the other by torture. Soon, the cops get a trace that it is the survivor of a gang rape case years ago. Well, that’s the right trace. So you know around 25 minutes after the start who the killer is and whom she’ll likely target next. That’s not really creating a “thrill” for me – knowing what will happen, why, and who does it…? Umm, ya.
There are a few scenes with upper limit PG16 violence, but I really have no clue how this got a PG18 one. Maybe you just need a totally different mood to like this.
