Captivity is a 2007 psychological horror film directed by Roland Joffé, written by Larry Cohen and Joseph Tura, and starring Elisha Cuthbert and Daniel Gillies. Considered an entry into the "torture porn" subgenre popularized by such film series as Hostel and Saw, the film centers on a young fashion model (Cuthbert) who is abducted and is psychologically tortured by unknown assailants.
Jennifer Tree is a rising fashion model. On an evening out alone, Jennifer is stalked and drugged. She wakes up in a cell containing personal items taken from her apartment. Jennifer is shown recordings of victims who were tortured in the same cell, as well as records of her interviews. She screams and pleads to be let go, but no one replies.
