Synopsis
Saw series mainstay Darren Lynn Bousman reunites with Twisted Pictures producers Oren Koules and Mark Burg for this futuristic shocker detailing a terrifying epidemic of organ failures. The denizens of planet Earth have been devastated by inexplicable and widespread organ failures, and as a result scientists begin planning a substantial organ harvest. Though an innovative biotech conglomerate subsequently offers the fearful public a means of maintaining their health by enacting a series of hassle-free organ payment plans, things begin to get messy when it's revealed that the financed body parts are subjected to legal default, and that failure to maintain proper payment will result in forceful repossession of the organs. Paul Sorvino and Spy Kids' Alexa Vega star alongside celebrity socialite Paris Hilton in the Lionsgate film. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Much better than I expected. by Emosjrny May 14, 2009 - 2:01 PM PDT

When I spied the DVD on the shelves of Walmart, I was hesitant about the "From the producers of Saw" plug. I look at the credits and finding Bousman's name attached and that's all I needed to sell me (okay so the synopsis did also sound intriquing). I had some friends over for dinner and one of them spotted the disc on my "to be watched" shelf, said it was a musical and that's all it took to turn me off to the film. Finally, a month later, when it made it to the top of my "to be watched" shelf, I convinced myself to watch it and was completely blown away! Stylish, gory, entertaining, gory and an excellent industrial Emo soundtrack. Plus did I mention over-the-top bloody and gory!
