  • Another unsettling contribution to the torture genre spawned by films like SAW and HOSTEL, CAPTIVITY treads similar terrain while bringing something new to the table. Elisha Cuthbert (THE GIRL NEXT DOOR) is Jennifer, a celebrated runway model who leads a relatively lonely life. One night, after being stood up at a club, she's drugged and wakes up much later in an intricately constructed dungeon. The captor is a mysterious presence who has clearly done this before. As time goes on, the taunting and torture reach nearly unbearable proportions. But before she gives up all hope, Jennifer discovers Gary (Daniel Gillies), another victim, who is determined to break them both out of their horrific prison.

    A shocking departure for director Roland Joffe, who is best known for helming the 1980s classics THE MISSION and THE KILLING FIELDS, CAPTIVITY is more recognizable as the work of co-screenwriter Larry Cohen (IT'S ALIVE, MANIAC COP, CELLULAR). Stylish and brutal, and featuring another haunting score from Marco Beltrami, CAPTIVITY features a mid-film plot twist that takes the picture to a whole new level.
