 External Reviews
external linkFor all its weirdness, its atmosphere, its offbeat characters and its twisted humour, it is highly recommended. 3/5

external linkThe Ordeal is director Fabrice Du Welz’s first feature presentation but this movie will withstand the test of time and will be recognised as a true classic. 4.5/5
--Joris Westerdaal (

external linkA gritty psychological horror film, that has a lot of layers for the viewers to find and answers to. See this expecting an interesting story of a man's ordeal with crazy locals, but don't expect a lot of hack-and-slash gore. 7/10
