Detective Eddie Argo (Skarsgård) is jaded. His partner Helen (George) is wide-eyed. Their newest case is an intellectual puzzle wrapped inside a sadist's head-trip. So far so 'Se7en', but 'WAZ' quickly succumbs to the de rigueur torture porn currently being practised by Eli 'Hostel' Roth et al sacrificing a decent thriller for gore points. The result feels like a low-budget cop show with hardcore violence spliced in - distractingly raw-edged and incongruous.

THRILLER/HORROR (18) 104min Marketed as a member of the Se7en school of psychological thriller, the gory realities of WAZ’s serial killer chase premise put it closer to the iniquitous barbarism presented by James Wan and Leigh Whannell’s Saw series.
