Film Review: Torture Room by Sophia Cynthia Cabral

Release date: July 20, 2007
Company: Cerebral Experiment
Director: Eric Forsberg
Produced by: Laurel Firouzabadi as assistant producer. Eric Forsberg as producer, Karen Forsberg as producer
Starring: Lena Bookall, Barry Ratcliffe, John Forgehman
Plot: A young American woman with a history of Arab boyfriends is targeted by homeland security, accosted, dragged in for questioning and held as a prisoner in a secret facility where she is tortured and brainwashed, all under the jurisdiction of the Patriot Act.
Review: The movie is intense from the start, Lena Bookall’s acting is impressive. It shows the dark side of humanity, the sadism human people can have along the lack of empathy. Sometimes the real monsters aren’t the ones that are far but the ones closer to us. Evil comes in many forms, sometimes the kind looking neighbor is actually someone waiting to murder you in your sleep or to just harm you in other subtle ways. I don’t mean we should be paranoid but just address the fact that we truly never know fully anyone else. In general the movie felt with a stable flow, the character development was intense, more specifically the torture scenes. It’s a movie I can recommend but not to anyone, by that I mean, if you got a sensitive mind you better watch something else. The acting in general is quite intense, pretty much could almost feel their pain. The false kindness scene is one of my favorites, a wolf dressed as a lamb to say least. -Sophia Cynthia Cabral
