The film was raw, graphic, and uncomfortable at times. There were scenes of rape, torture, and humiliation so it's no wonder the reviews so far have been less than kind. No one likes seeing anything that gruesome outside of a slasher flick. No one wants to believe things like that happen to people in real life.
It wasn't overly gory or so out there as to be considered a complete work of fiction. Again, this house IS real and the architecture (ie, stairs to nowhere, rooms that are permanently locked) is as bananas as described.
In the trailer for this flick, we once again see Neeson on the phone with a mystery person and AGAIN, find that he's been framed for something he didn't do. AGAIN members of his family have been threatened. And AGAIN, he somehow has a set of skills that he uses to solve the mystery and save the day.
