to:

* SoOkayItsAverageSoOkayItsAverage: While few would argue that the film is outright ''bad'', it mostly got this reaction from audiences and critics alike: it is a dark and competently made thriller with a solid cast and an original subject matter, but the fact that the screenplay tries so hard to recapture what made Film/Se7en popular ultimately makes it feel like a mediocre rethread of it.

* MemeticMutation: The scene where Welles watches the snuff film has been used in some hilarious YouTube videos where Nic Cage watches his own scenes, mostly from ''Film/TheWickerMan''.

* HeReallyCanAct: When Tom Welles is angrily asking [[spoiler: Why Mr. Matthews would pay to have such a horrendous piece of film made]]. This isn't funny LargeHam Cage, here his rage is realistic, vicious and broken. After seeing films like Deadfall, Face/Off, and Vampire's Kiss, this scene right here makes you realize "Damn, Cage has chops!"

* WhatAnIdiot: While Tom's clearly not in his right mind when he's with his family [[spoiler: after they left their old home in case they got any nasty surprises from Dino's men]], Amy has had enough of his recent disturbing behavior and has outright threatened to leave him, taking Cindy with her. It never seems to cross Tom's mind that if he'd just tell her what went down, maybe ''just maybe'' she might be a bit more understanding as to why he's acting the way he is.

* CompleteMonster: We have TheSociopath and {{Sadist}} MalevolentMaskedMan Machine. Machine takes part in snuff films to feed his depraved appetites and he is the one who rapes and murders an innocent woman on camera. When the tape is investigated, Machine is willing to kill more people, and commit more rapes on camera. When he attempts to murder the hero, he even gleefully whispers while strangling him how hard he's getting from the violence. Machine has no FreudianExcuse or reasoning for his action and he serves to show how a monster can come in the most innocuous of guises, particularly when you see under the mask [[spoiler: Machine is a bald, chubby, harmless looking man named George who asks "were you expecting a monster?"]]
