      Audience Member This is what happens when you give a incel a lot of money to make a movie Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Absolutely horrifying for all the wrong reasons. It expects the audience to side with the rather sadistic, Jigsaw-esque John Lation, since he is the mysterious figure torturing the pro-choice characters. It reveals how truly evil the filmmakers are. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 11/02/19 Full Review Audience Member "You're In Hell! Welcome To Your Eternity" **SPOILERS** I found this item by chance while looking up the films of Charles Durning. The plot appeared that it might be of some interest. This film was described as "a thriller with a message." Three women, who had been expecting to abort their babies, wake up to find they -- along with a doctor -- have been kidnapped by what the believe to be a fanatical anti-abortion group. Their "jailer" addresses them from a closed-circuit television. It is his intention to compel them to deliver their unwanted babies. Instead of your usual horror fare, the women are dressed in nightgowns and fed decent food, while reading and watching propaganda on why abortion is bad. They are shown purportedly video taped messages from their families and the settle into a routine. Inevitably, they go into labour -- simultaneously! The babies are delivered -- one, most outspoken pro-abortionist of the three gives birth to twins. Afterwards, the one who had twins is sick and in pain. After examining her, the doctor is dumbfounded to discover something that she says "is impossible." She informs the woman she is still pregnant. The woman says "it can't be." Suddenly it transpires that the two other women who gave birth there were never real; it turns out that the die-harder had died on the abortion table and the doctor had committed suicide -- they are, and always have been, in Hell. The story for most of the film went along a clear and straight forward premise. It turned out to be a blasé story with little intrigue for most of it. But the twist at the end ruined it even on that level. The whole premise that a grumpy old man kidnapped three pregnant women from abortion clinics to force them to give birth is plausible. The whole story presents that premise with the videos from the families and the interaction of the three women and doctor. The reveal at the end that only the one girl and the doctor are real and that they are in hell totally invalidated everything throughout the movie. The entire story of the film is shown to have been deception; there's just no reason for such a development. They are in Hell -- there's no reason for them to be told otherwise. And the faked videos from the families really is a stupid turn. They are dead so their families wouldn't be sending any such messages -- there's no reason for it. The twist at the end only made a story that was lack-luster at best, a complete waste of time. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
