Captivity

Torture porn gets the glamour treatment in this U.S.-Russian coproduction shot at Moscow's Mosfilm studios, with some location footage of New York thrown in as bookends. Elisha Cuthbert plays a cock-teasing celebrity model who's stalked and kidnapped by a strong, silent type in a hoodie, then subjected to such degradation and torture as being force-fed human organs and having to shoot her own bichon frise. Although clearly aping Saw, former art-house director Roland Joffe (The Killing Fields, The Mission) also cribs from Psycho and Panic Room. It's not scary because not one second is believable—starting with the idea of Cuthbert as a supermodel. With Daniel Gillies and Pruitt Taylor Vince. R, 88 min.
