Filmed in Saskatchewan by Jennifer (Boxing Helena, Surveillance) Lynch, Chained tackles some of her famous father's favourite thematic concerns with a provocative and disturbing look at unconventional relationships. Vincent D'Onofrio is spellbinding as Bob, a serial murderer and rapist who decides to take in the young son of one of his victims. Renaming him Rabbit, Bob initially treats the boy as little more than a slave, chaining him to the wall and forcing him to survive on scraps. As the years go by, Bob starts to see Rabbit as something more—something closer to a son; a chance to leave a real legacy.

Unafraid to be ugly and at times harrowing, Chained is something more than a straight-up thriller. It's a glimpse into the mind of pure evil; a study of how that evil can warp the world around it.
