Now that the headline has sucked you in, let’s talk about Kidnapped. It’s a Spanish-language film about an upper-class family whose quiet night at home is interrupted by some masked home invaders. The film then takes a graphic and disturbing turn as the criminals put the family through hell. Screen Junkies editor, Ian, caught this film at FantasticFest and claimed it to be “the most horrific film I’ve ever seen.” I try every day to horrify Ian with my writing, and, I assure you, he’s usually unflappable.

Beyond the gore, violence, and generally disturbing action, there’s something more to this film, however. Director Miguel Angel Vivas constructed the film around twelve shots. While this approach could be (and has been) dismissed as gimmicky I have been told that it not only works, but serves the tension and story well. Kidnapped hits theaters via IFC on June 17. Lock your doors.
