Editorial Reviews

A group of strangers finds themselves imprisoned in a house. Unsure why they are there or who is behind it, the group is soon enlightened by a video advising them there is a way out! But the threshold they must cross is one of excruciating pain and in the face of torture not everyone is willing to play by the newly created rules. The group is ripped apart by infighting, secret alliances, double-crosses and shattering outbursts of violence. With the clock ticking down, the one for all mentality devolves. Just how far will each of them go to survive?

I watched Vile today on Fios on demand and wasn't disappointed.
I had already read some 'real reviews'not the ONE review wonders that everyone should beware of..
So I knew it wasn't going to be as visually violent as other torture porn entries.

I do wish there had been some detailed effects because if there would have been real gore and more effects I would have given this 5 stars.The acting was good as was the premise even though we have seen so many of these types of movies where a group of people are locked in a room and they have to do terrible things to one another to survive and either the inner beast or the good of heart are released for all to see.

This one had it's own flavor and was more clever than quite a few of the others I have seen.
It was brutal and violent , I'm not saying it wasn't,what I am saying is that if they had a bigger budget it could have been off the charts awesome. That being said sometimes what you don't see can be more horrifying than what you do.

There were a couple of (that could never happen moments)example"carrying someone after you have had your collarbone busted in to a million pieces".I will give that a pass because Iv'e seen many more ridiculous scenarios than that in other horror films and loved them.If being burned then having bleach poured on your burns, brutal tooth extraction or having your fingernails pulled out with pliers freaks you out by all means watch it or not.
There was a twist I never saw coming and a very satisfying ending.I was very impressed especially after writer and executive producer Rob Kowsaluk wrote in my Amazon review comments that they were working with a shoestring budget.

This is not a genre that I appreciate and I didn't realize that it would be a torture porn film when I was terribly bored and rented it. That being said, I'm really impressed. The acting is quite good as is the dialogue. Watching how different personalities handle the situation is quite fascinating and, the music...wow. Most semi-low budget horror movies go for a death metal sound but, this one is more in the realm of folk music. The twist may have you contemplating psycology a bit at least, I certainly was. All around great presentation.

I have to say, after seeing all the Saw movies and being bored with them by the last movie, this one kept my interest. The best way to describe it in reference to other movies is it's a cross between Saw II and Wrong Turn. The acting is very well done and the character development is also moderately deep.

The "culprit" was certainly a surprise at the end, although thinking back on it I guess it shouldn't have been. There will be many who will say that this is a direct rip off of Saw and you would probably be right. But if you enjoyed the Saw movies before they started to get old and predictable I think you'll enjoy this movie. At an hour and a half it's not too long. It does start out slow for those of you that like to get right into the gore but once it finds its "groove" the movie progresses quite nicely.

One last point: As to the gore, the writers didn't just throw in gratuitous shots of it just because they could. This movie has equal parts character development and gore and it strikes a nice balance between them.

A hot iron to the stomach. A pile of salt on an open wound. A wrench to the jaw. An arm dunked in rapidly-boiling water. A fingernail or two torn off with pliers. Torture-porn horror subgenre fans take note ~ this little shocker will hit the spot. The torture is literally part of the point of the film. 'Vile' is a gruesome direct-to-video piece about a group of people kidnapped and trapped at a location (don't you love that?) and forced to inflict severe pain on each other in order to fill up the vials (get it?) attached to the back of their heads with the various fluids the brain produces when in excruciating pain. The purpose, we find out, is for a powerful new drug. Only when they fill the amount with what's needed will they be allowed to leave. The thing I like most about this movie are the characters. The chemistry between our protagonists is excellent and they're vastly more likable to even the SAW movies. So many of these stories start with people just waking up out of nowhere, but these people meet on a camping trip before the pain begins. Yes there's an actual backstory! The director, Taylor Sheridan, does exceptionally well and the score isn't bad. Hey it was tedious at times I'll admit but at the end I was F'n impressed! All of the filmmakers ~ keep up the good work. VILE is available on Netflix or Amazon demand right now. Peep it you sick freaks.

Surprisingly I enjoyed this movie. This is definitely a low budget movie and the acting is not so great. The first I think twenty minutes I was contemplating turning it off, but then when the torture began I was hooked. Then I got my adrenaline running when one of the protagonist was thinking up all the rules. There were definitely some great sweet revenge in here and a satisfying ending. I enjoyed the actors, they really were personable even with what they had to work with. I would have loved for this to have been a little more gory, but that's just me. I enjoyed the back story and I enjoyed the twist.

Some people here mentioned about the music, to be honest I didn't really pay much attention to the music and if you ask me it wasn't out of place. I wouldn't want rock and roll through the whole movie cause it would ruin the flow and for this being such a low-budget movie rock and roll would've made this movie corny and it wouldn't have the same feel. I love the plot, love the characters, love the back story...I just loved this movie overall. The ending PRICELESS! I was sad at certain parts. I guess I loved the build up of characters, they did a great job in that department, made you feel for what happens to them (Except for one lol)

Overall, I was delighted.
