This film is awesome. Hostel may have got the 'grindcore' hype, but this is 10 times the film that turned out to be. Its been a long time since the draconian Censorship laws forced 'nasties' on to 16th generation vhs copies traded in the back of Darkside magazine. The irony is that this is a major movie release that, bar from the most extreme 70's/80's material, is far more graphic in every way than the vast majority of the original 'Video nastie's' as defined by the Bright bill of 1984.
It is well made, well acted, and thoroughly faithfull to its notorious roots. After this and Devils Rejects, I am intrigued to see just how far mainstream studios, and the BBFC, will allow directors to take this new 'Nasty' generation. Whatever the evolution, this film will stand up well to repeat viewing for many years- just like the original.
