Arriving On Demand next Wednesday, June 15, before arriving in theaters that following Friday is Miguel Angel Vivas’ Kidnapped, IFC Films’ Spanish-language home invasion flick that’s got a pretty decent amount of gore.
Bloody Disgusting’s Brian Orndorf had a chance to catch the flick and wasn’t as impressed as I was. Here are his thoughts:
“ ‘Kidnapped’ goes gratuitously dark in the final reel, exiting on a brutal note of sexual assault and bloody survival that’s excitedly executed, but almost predictable in its overkill. Vivas raises so much hell during the picture, the sucker punch conclusion is drowned out by all the noise, with a grand summation of malevolence crippled by artless anguish. ‘Kidnapped‘ endeavors to leave viewers a quivering mess by the time the end credits arrive (scored ironically with upbeat music), but all that’s truly valued from the picture is its hearty cinematographic achievement.”
