Kurt Russell took a risk when he broke from his Disney roots by aligning with John Carpenter and refashioning himself as an exploitation anti-hero. But he’s got nothing on Lindsay Lohan. With her latest film, it’s difficult to tell where her real life ends and the reel one begins. Chris Sivertson, the director of her descent into torture porn, is no Carpenter, but he certainly knows how to anguish an audience, fetishizing severed limbs in hematic, prolonged close-up, the hoarse screams of Lohan echoing in surround sound. She plays Aubrey Fleming, straight-A student and piano prodigy. Or is she surly stripper Dakota Moss (sorry, boys, no nudity –– yet), daughter of a crack addict? A cameo by conspiracy connoisseur Art Bell holds an absurd answer to this prurient Parent Trap, a killer is revealed to be exactly who you’d expect, and Lohan’s virgin/whore dons a robotic hand, the perfect prop to match her performance.

    Now that the shaky-cam nonsense has been left behind, what remains are textureless, overlit, sub-TV-quality visuals that only accentuate the fact that our protagonist, Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell), is at least a decade older than the 17-year-old exorcised sect-escapee that she's playing.

    Stop me if you've heard this one before: a farm boy dreams of adventure, finds it, and falls in love with a princess along the way. (For everyone's sake, let's just hope she's not his sister.)
