Time Out says

Torrent, a student researching violence in audiovisual media, gets more than she bargained for after asking a porno/gorefest freak to show her some of his heaviest videos. It's not his sick fascination that's so disturbing as the fact that her professor dies after watching what turns out to be a snuff movie, perhaps shot by someone in the university. A slick thriller muddled by its attempt to give its basic woman-in-peril theme a serious spin: it condemns our morbid interest in producing and watching violent images, then proceeds to satisfy it. Dubious and derivative, but delivered with some élan.
