if your into torture porn this is a must-see but otherwise not a movie to go out of your way to watch, and definitely not for the squeamish.

  • Summary: The movie is off to a bad start with the new wave horror cliché of being shot on hand-held camera, this is by no means a bad thing if it is done correctly such as the infamous "Blair witch project" and "Cloverfield", however in the case of penance it feels like this was done to save money and not...

Video, torture and tits... oh my!

BA_Harrison, IMDb
9 October 2011
  • Summary: I'm as sick and tired of predictable torture flicks and found footage films as the next horror fan, and so Penance—which 'cleverly' combines these two tired sub-genres to create the 'found torture footage' sub-sub-genre—hardly sounded like it was going to deliver much of interest to this particular...

May have been okay with more convincing acting

Midnight_Mass, IMDb
11 August 2010
  • Summary: I'm not one to slate low-budget films- in fact, a lot of the time, they can seem much more realistic and worth-while. This, however, is an embarrassing display of poor acting with another Brit cast as the psychopath targeting some defenceless Americans.

Graphic, Decent Film

dwayne-miller, IMDb
15 June 2010
  • Summary: This film lures its viewers down into an graphic and disgusting abyss around the role of being a stripper, and attempts to terrify strippers and pre-strippers away from the lifestyle.

I guess some things I will never understand.

Arisenandawakened, IMDb
23 March 2010
  • Summary: This movie strikes me on so many levels as absolute trash. I wish the lead actress was at least attractive. Although, she did have nice breasts... which was the only redeeming quality of this flick, gratuitous nudity. Especially in the case of one Eve Mauro. That girl is absolutely gorgeous.

Odd little, nasty film full of tons of genre cameos...

TexasPsycho26, IMDb
24 January 2010
  • Summary: This film has obviously been considered torture porn, but I somehow don't think it is. The violence is far more amped up than in over-hyped films like Saw and Hostel, but that's not what I dug about it.

Torture Porn, and Not Even Good Torture Porn

TheExpatriate700, IMDb
18 January 2010
  • Summary: Penance is an example of this decade's "torture porn" craze at its worst. Cheaply made, with largely unknown actors, the film lacks the creativity of films such as Saw, substituting shock tactics for originality. The story is nothing new.
