Editorial Reviews

From the writer/director of BOXING HELENA

From the mind of writer/director Jennifer Lynch comes the shocker that stunned audiences worldwide: When he was 9 years old, Tim and his mother were abducted by taxi-driving serial killer Bob (an intensely disturbing performance by Vincent D'Onofrio). Tim's mother was murdered. Tim was kept as a chained slave, forced to bury the bodies of young women Bob drags home and keep scrapbooks of the crimes. Now a teenager, Tim (Eamon Farren) and Bob share a depraved father/son/protégé relationship. But who will ultimately sever the bond between 'family' and unimaginable horror? Jake Weber (''Medium''), Evan Bird (''The Killing'') and Julia Ormond (THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON, ''Mad Men'') co-star in what critics are calling one of the most controversial and uncompromising thrillers of our time.

Format:DVD
Bob (Vincent D'Onofrio aka "Gomer Pyle" from "Full Metal Jacket) is a cab driver who has bad dreams about his past. To compensate his hobbies include kidnapping, rape, and killing young women. One of the women he has killed has a son who he maintains as a slave, hence the title. Needless to say, Tim (Eamon Farren) grows up rather abnormally.

Unlike other rape/slasher films this one isn't after cheap thrills and effects. Instead it concentrates on the unusual relationship between Bob and Tim, that of captor and captive who develops a slight case of Stockholm Syndrome.

The film trudges along and then at the end Jennifer Lynch reveals her genius with a surprise ending that well, frankly should not have been a surprise. It is a film that leaves you feeling weird. The film continues with sound through the final credits.

Parental guide: F-bombs, no intense sex/rape scenes, or nudity. Male torso nudity. Blood and gore is less graphic than most films of this genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does For cabs ,What Jaws did for The water October 2, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Chained was much better and had more guts that I thought it would,not literally because it wasn't extremely gory but there was a nice amount of blood letting .I meant there were more layers to this film than the trailer leads one to believe,Vincent D'Onofrio was amazing as Bob the serial killer/cab driver who kills women, of course because of some daddy and mama trauma.

Eamon Farren was pleasantly restrained as the captive in which Bob captures and renames "Rabbit" at about the age of ten, nine years prior while rabbit was on an outing to the movies with his mom.

While locked in the cab Rabbit who's real name is Tim listened while Bob killed and raped his mother.After that rabbit is chained and confined to the house to do Bob's bidding and is being told to take heed because this is what life is about and he will be doing this one day because basically it's his lot in life,the house in itself is gloomy ,depressing and reeks of insanity. It lends perfectly to the mood of the film.

It has elements of Bereavement but I found it to be a superior film.
There is of course a twist,not so much of a twist but a revelation I would say.

It's a good revelation at that and the climax of the film leads into another climax and that took it to a whole other level.Great writing and acting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome September 30, 2012
Format:DVD
I saw this film during a small horrorfilm festival in Vienna in a likewise small cinema with 250 other people. We all were blown away by the sheer force of nature Vincent D'Onofrio delivered with his performance. He already played a similar and also quite impressive role many years ago in The Cell, but in this movie he even topped his performance from back then. The picture was dark and brooding and Jenny Lynch showed once again that she is more than capable to fill the shoes of her father. All actors played their roles great. The only flaw the film may have is the "surprise ending", which seemed a little forced, but makes sense, if you think about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray Review: "Chained" October 11, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Jennifer Lynch's "Chained" is one of those films I walked away from completely disturbed but also captivated by. I find it hard to even call it a horror film because it doesn't fit in to the definition of the genre. A horror film to me is one that you walk away from with a sense of fun from being scared. There's nothing fun about "Chained." All I kept thinking the entire time I watched it is, "This really could and does happen." It's a gripping psychological thriller that throws in a few twists here and there to keep the viewer on their toes. Basically, it's exactly what you would expect from the daughter of director David Lynch.

Bob (Vincent D'Onofrio) is a cab driving serial killer who picks his victims up and takes them to his rural house. One afternoon, Bob picks up a little boy named Tim (Evan Bird) and his mother (Julia Ormond) from the movies. He takes the boy and his mother to his home. After killing Tim's mother, he chains the boy up and tells him he'll be his servant for the rest of his life and his name is now Rabbit. As Rabbit (Eamon Farren) grows into a teenager, he realizes the only way Bob will allow him to survive is by following in the killer's footsteps. He must find a way to escape from the psycho before it's too late.

The high-definition transfer of this film does nothing to keep it from feeling grimy and filthy. All the clarity of the picture does is give us a better view of the abhorrent and despondent world Rabbit lives in. This is the sort of movie you might wish still had film grain and muddy spots to hide some of the despicable things Bob does.

A 7.1 surround sound mix brings all the horrific sounds you'd never want to hear to life. One moment you'll be immersed in dreaded silence.

5.0 out of 5 stars So good, so slow. October 8, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie... requires patience.

I came very close to not finishing it, twice. It took me three sittings to finish.
It was slow, but well put together. It was gruesome, but for the story's plot, the gore was needed.
When I did reach the VERY end, I found it to be an awesome and rewarding movie to watch.

Watch the WHOLE movie, even the credits, and listen closely to what is and is not said the entire time.

The dude from Law and Order played such a nut ball, that it was hard to get past his type cast rolls. This however was not the case with his starring role. A must see movie.
