    Any thoughts? It could work for at least five days scientifically...

    Been searching for a spoiler to read online. I'm surprised TheMovieSpoiler site doesn't even have one posted (must be that f'd up, huh?).

    It is sort of disturbing that this film was pitched and then received funding. Definitely not my sort of film, but I do agree with Ebert that it has its place. (This is intended to be a series of films, too!)

    Spoiler? The film is already available online. (The usual sites, of course.)

    I like sites like TheMovieSpoiler to get the full rundown on films that I otherwise wouldn't spend the time watching.

    I saw some clips on 'You have Been Watching' a few weeks ago and all that I could muster in my brain was 'WTFingF?!'.

    This is one of those sick films that just messes with my mind by concept alone...and I heard it isn't even that gory. It's just freakin' disturbing.

    LOL, I first learned about it through the trailer. Imagine my shock. Was a bit blank for a few minutes afterwards and disturbed for a full day.

    Huh. That sounds like a weird title. I wonder what this is all about.

    Meh.

    Filmmakers trying to be shocking for its own sake. Some keep trying to plumb the depths because really, there's nothing wrong with it per se, but this neither interests nor disturbs me.

    Oh, and the concept is unworkable if they were trying for "realism". You can't graft unrelated people together. The tissue would start to reject at the point of contact unless you tried to just sew them together and keep them together with sutures as opposed to letting the skin grow together. Also, persons 2 and 3 would be dead in relatively short order from massive bacterial infections and malnutrition, especially with their systems weakened after surgery.

    It's an interesting little footnote in the "torture porn" genre, but little more.

    Well, those things actually happened in the movie I think. Ah well, but you're definitely right on the shocking for its own sake. It's like a race to depict the basest of human behavior.

    I'm on the same page as most others here. WTF? Why would you stick an Asian guy on the front of that hot threesome!?! AM I RIGHT??? *throws up a hand waiting for the barrage of highfives*

    If nothing else besides absolutely disgusting, it's kind of an interesting concept.
