This is known in some Asian countries as MARTYRS 2. I find it pretty ridiculous to even compare these two movies. MARTYRS had a plot, a point of view and pretty clear message. This movie, on the other hand, is just a little over an hour of two people being fucked with, completely humiliated and tortured in the goriest and bloodiest ways possible. They do try to shoehorn the idea of dying for the one you love in there but it's done with the subtlety of a sledgehammer and ultimately amounts to nothing. Now while all this splatter and spilled body fluids might make a nice background visual for your next birthday party or family get together it makes for a pretty torturous viewing experience watching it as a movie. A pretty unpleasant viewing experience, that is, unless maybe you happen to be Jeffrey Dahmer. I will say that I found the ridiculous ending pretty humorous for such a complete downer of a film. It's too bad it takes for what seems like an eternity to get there. Watch the 80's Linda Blair vs. punk rockers GROTESQUE instead.
