Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thriller: A Cruel Picture [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
A brilliant tale of sadness and revenge this movie is a must see for cult horror fans. A girl was raped as a child turning her mute, now a young adult she is offered a lift from a seemingly kind gentleman which then turns into dinner and eventually back to his place where she is drugged. Waking up many days later she finds he has been pumping her full of heroine which her body now relies on and she must service various clients to get her daily fix, at first she refuses but after she gets an eye gouging punishment she decides to co-operate, she doesn't give up though and is secretly preparing for an all out war on the people who are responsible. This is not a hollywood revenge film, no huge explosions or smug one-liners (keep in mind the main character is mute) just a beautiful yet controversial tale that builds the depressing atmosphere until it drives you nuts then gives you the vengeful outburst you so deserately want by then, this one will stick with you a while. Synapse Films released this in the US in two versions, the cut version uses the title "Thriller: They Call Her One Eye" and the uncut version which says limited edition on the box and goes by the title "Thriller: A Cruel Picture".
