That was one of the most messed up movies I've seen- it's up there with Excision.

A brilliant film. The film does leave one major question unanswered...who is Hayley?...but that does not stop this brave film from being unbelievably intense. Ellen Page and Patrick Wilson are absolutely terrific, and Sandra Oh is effective in her tiny role. A must-see film starring Ellen Page, pre-Juno.

Teenage girl asks to meet with a pedophile who's been trying to seduce her on the Internet. He weaves his web on the "unsuspecting" girl and they go to his house after the initial meeting. They have drinks together and he wakes up secured to a chair. The plot follows the interactions of the two people as he tries to wiggle out of whatever she has planned for him. The characters are shown as more complex than the usual knee-jerk shallow treatment given to stories of prey and predator. Ellen Page and Patrick Wilson take us down paths that twist unexpectedly. This is a thought-provoker rather than a good guy-bad guy experience. Not for everyone, of course, but I recommend it.

if you are a teenager (mentally) this is your fantasy on the screen, you are glorified and still you are able to be cruel, and of course your victim is stupid so you will look smart

Insane twisted film, but totally satisfying. Ellen Page, as always, is utterly extravagant as she lures and tortures a creepy pedophile (rightfully, of course). She proves she's ahead of her time, as she did the more recent "Inception". Her tactics are eerily grown up and skilled; flawless! Really puts the viewer on the edge of their seat. It is a little unfair though, as the pedophile never even stood a chance. :D

A creepy, disturbing, and very effective thriller. Ellen Page and Patrick Wilson worked very well together on-screen in this twisted tale of....revenge? justice? Ellen Page, seemingly innocent and soft-natured turns out to be a demented, teen vigilante of sorts who goes after child molesters and pedophiles. While the movie was very well done (so well done that at times it was actually uncomfortable to watch), Page had moments were she overplayed the "creepy" role. Wilson, from beginning to end was everything you expect a pedophile to be, from charming to deranged, tortured, and crazy. This was really good--I'll probably never watch this again, but it was really good.

I'm surprised Ellen Page did not garner an Oscar nomination for her performance in David Slade's "Hard Candy." Her deviousness is well-hidden by her seemingly innocent nature, causing her transformation to be so incredibly terrifying. Patrick Wilson also turned in a top notch performance as a possibly revolting man, though not necessarily revolting. A great thriller.

Disturbing, but effective character thriller with repulsive individuals that keep the audience guessing; some of the motivations are difficult to decipher, but it's gripping, uncomforting entertainment and Ellen Page is fantastic. Final Grade: B

Good god this movie was awesome. Nerve wrenching, interesting, and all together great. Would watch it over and over again. Good acting, and sick plot. Go ahead, feel bad for him, I dare you.
