pretty good, then ruined by whiny feminists

Well, well. Looks like someone gave a movie camera to a feminist.

Original story. Started out very well. And then the girls started talking.

The movies goes downhill from there.

If they had edited out 10 or 12 lines from this movie, I would have given it a 7.5 instead of a 5.

But they brought in this whole angle about how no one listens to women and they are oppressed and forced to obey men.

At first I really identified with the women/prisoners but in the end I was begging for them to get bumped off. This is a tremendous irony because instead of developing sympathy for the oppressed women, we end up wanting them to be killed... quickly and quietly. By the last 10 minutes I suspect even the Pope would want to smack them.

The worst part is the protohumanoid monster, who in the end spares the bitchy protagonist as it is revealed that the monster too, is a woman complete with a suckling baby monster.

I kept waiting for the film maker to insert anti male scenes of the perpetrators sexually assaulting the prisoners or leaving the toilet seat up, but was spared, thank God.

The movie makes a big deal about screaming. "We scream so that others know we are alive."

Three quarters of the way through the movie, I was screaming for the film projectionist to have a heart attack and spare us the ending .

Another decent movie ruined by Left Wing "I am a victim" overtones.

Do yourself a favor. Skip this one. If this movie was made 30 or 40 years ago it may have been relevant, but in an age where women are given special treatment under the law and graduate from college in greater numbers than men, not so much.

Oh God, when will film makers stop trying to teach us social lessons and get back to entertainment?

What?

The fact that so many reviews point out the inconsistency in tone of the film is a hint. I mean, I get it, I get that they wanted to do all of this, but it just doesn't work. The first half of the film is fine, it's just that it seems to turn direction in such a jarring way that it really kills all the momentum it had been building up. The performances are fine, even if the characters are nothing to write home about, and the production values for an indie film are also pretty impressive. It really comes down to the screenplay and the fact that the directing needed to be toned down a bit. Even for a good time, this doesn't all work, although it could've.
