5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent movie that only hardcore open minded horror fans will appreciate, 18 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Subconscious Cruelty (Collector´s 2 Disc Edition) (2000) (Region 2) (Import) (DVD)
This is a movie like no other, it drills deep into the subconscious, into a level of horror and keeps you there for its duration. It's very dark with some real intense atmosphere, artistic directing and imagery and some truly horrifying realistic violence

This is not for everyone and is defiantly not mainstream in anyway. It requires someone who is very open to the genre of horror to appreciate it. I heard some people say there is no violence in this, I can assure you that is incorrect. This movie is one of the darkest and most violent movies I've ever seen. I think there are a few cut versions out there. The delux edition(as far as I'm aware) is the only true uncut version. I'm not sure about this version, but I'd imagine its the full version.

The Deluxe edition (I'm not sure about this version, I would assume its the same) is an excellent collector's DVD, there is a documentary included with over 2 hours of footage, the documentary is very interesting and actually very enjoyable to watch. The short movie Divided into Zero is also a fantastic addition (delux edition only)

The music score is fantastic. The music is very relaxing but intense and raw at the same time. Its music is challenging and creates such a perfect curtain of atmosphere throughout the entire duration of the movie. Its music and imagery is also beautiful in a twisted way.

Truth is this wont appeal to everyone, and I hope people who are interested in this will watch it with an open mind. It's not for the faint hearted (a man has his penis skinned, a woman conceives a baby and both are killed while in the process of birth) but the intensity of this movie is much greater than most movies from Hollywood today. This movie is no doubt original and a breath of fresh air. This is not a movie that will ever be on TV but the documentary shows how much fun and hard work the team went through when making this. It's not a massive Hollywood movie with a huge budget. There is no CGI, just all hand made practical and incredibly realistic effects. You certainly can't deny the hard work that went into this. This was a movie that a small group of friends made and took four years to complete. This movie is art and is split up into segments exploring the horrors of the human mind. Real horror fans looking for something different and bone chillingly intense should check out this movie.

This movie is a must have for a real collector of horror. I take my hat off to Mitch and Karim for this, I enjoyed it for what it is.
