Pure sexy filth

  • Summary: I loved Mugg's review of this average torture-porn sub genre of horror. I hope she realizes that she has sold the film for many. Overall watchable and actually quite tame in the gore department compared to some films. Behind the films horror theme lies religious extremism and fascist sadism. These films are created to titillate until one finds themselves feeling guilty and uncomfortable for having enjoyed such brutality.

Interesting to the point of Understanding their states of mind

  • Summary: This was a callous and gory film, yet sexist in some parts, Depicting a Leader of such disgust only proves him to be a psychotic person with a view to being at god's side. However, any being on earth who commits such unintelligent acts merely rules out that it is he who has sinned by causing the sin against these poor woman, In biblical terms it is only god who will judge.

A very poor effort

  • Summary: Tosh. Shaky camera work, which fails to impress me, poor acting, the local Am Dram could do a lot better and a flimsy story line where the cliches fall thick and fast. Not for me.

  • Summary: I am embarrassed for the Writer/Director. I would rather be skint and jobless than be associated with this film. It failed on every level. SHOCKING !!

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 add atmosphere or a sense of realism to the movie (if it did it was lost on me).

Say WHAT??????

  • Summary: I haven't watched all of this mess. Besides, it's screening on Chiller right now, which means I would only see an extremely censored version anyway. This is the kind of movie that makes me wonder what has happened the the American horror film industry. At one time this might have fit into the old misogynistic grind-house genre.

Pointless and terrible genre cross-over effort

GL84, IMDb
24 September 2012
  • Summary: Filling in for a friend on a stripping job, a young woman finds she's captured by a deranged madman intended to purify similar women for their sins and is tortured to achieve those results. Yet another utterly retarded Torture Film here, only this one made all the more infuriated with the inclusion of the "Found Footage" moniker, so it's pretty much what would happen if "Paranormal Activity" did the "Saw" series, and that only spells disaster for all involved due to the...

Video, torture and tits... oh my!

BA_Harrison, IMDb

  • 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 jaded viewer.

Any lady who meets this doctor will never be a Pretty Woman.

5 December 2010
  • Summary: Penance is all about a woman (Marieh Delfino) who desperately needs to raise some cash and so turns to her friend, who is a stripper, and learns how to bust the moves that will earn her some cash. This leads her to take a very, strange, well-paid job that turns into something quite sinister and could very well be the last thing she ever does, all thanks to the twisted client (Graham McTavish) who thinks of himself as a saviour giving these poor, morally unsound, women a...
