Chained Blu-Ray / DVD Review

Synopsis: From the mind of writer/director Jennifer Lynch comes the shocker that stunned audiences worldwide: When he was 9 years old, Tim and his mother were abducted by taxi-driving serial killer Bob (an intensely disturbing performance by Vincent D'Onofrio). Tim's mother was murdered. Tim was kept as a chained slave, forced to bury the bodies of young women Bob drags home and keep scrapbooks of the crimes. Now a teenager, Tim (Eamon Farren) and Bob share a depraved father/son/protégé relationship. But who will ultimately sever the bond between 'family' and unimaginable horror? Jake Weber (''Medium''), Evan Bird (''The Killing'') and Julia Ormond (THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON, ''Mad Men'') co-star in what critics are calling one of the most controversial and uncompromising thrillers of our time.

Review: I've rarely seen a film as dark in tone as Chained.  There are tons of horror movies out there sure, and a lot of them have gore, but they're silly.  This one is grounded in a potential reality that is disturbing where the real monsters are people.  Vincent D'Onofrio turns in an amazing performance and I think that is the key to a film like this...good quality acting.  This film centers around a family of serial killers, of sorts.  There is a lot of tragedy, disturbing scenes and a dark tone that is unescapable.  If you have a strong stomach and conviction to be disburbed this one is for you.

Interest Range: Horror, Thriller
