Oldboy (2013)

Based on a Korean film, this is a twisted tale of vengeance. The term ‘slow poison’ takes on a new meaning when a man is locked up in solitary confinement for 20 years. He is released by his captor on a bizarre quest to find out why he was punished in the first place.

The warped ways in which the human mind can plot a revenge, in the most disgusting manner, is the crux of the film. While the violence is gory and brutal, the mind games and final plot revelation are the true horrors.

Watch if you enjoy this particular genre, it disturbed me more than it entertained.
