The Red Room is another in a growing list of "extreme" gore films from sicko director, Daisuke Yamanouchi. His films are usually entertaining just to see what kind of nastiness that he'll portray in his film next.
Red Room is an interesting blend of psychological thriller and torture themed horror, revolving around a semi-underground game show. Through the use of character development, and some rather interesting plot twists, it rises above the typical "torture porn" entry to achieve a genuine sense of dread and tension.
If you thought Hostel was a sick, depraved movie, then you had better steer clear of this film. It makes anything available in mainstream cinema seem incredibly tame, particularly in its use of graphic sexual violence. (IMDB) V
