It kind of is but it's also great.

The whole plot (after the reveal at the end) is pretty twisted and dirty. Incest is pretty creepy.

He watched "Seven" right before it, and seemed very shaken by the ending of that film as well.

Our greatest movie watching experience was The Seven Samurai. He adored that one.

Seven shook me up the first time I saw it.

Maybe give The good, The Bad and the Weird or The Man from Nowhere a shot.

Se7en is seriously great. Getting my roommates to watch it.

Seven spoilers.

At the ending, there is a close up of Pitts gun as it goes off, and it feels really out of place to me. That's a shot that you use to celebrate the action to me.
