3.0 out of 5 stars The dirty fur trade..., 20 May 2009
By 
This review is from: Seed [DVD] (DVD)
Initially, I was shocked and disgusted that scenes of real animal cruelty should be tagged onto the start of something as escapist and absurd as a routine hooror gorefest. That was about three hours ago. I then watched the rest film in a state of semi-shock at what I'd just witnessed.

WARNING: SPOILER...

The "hammer torture" scene I found to be genuinely compelling as it is something I'd never seen before, and watching it on my 19" PC monitor it seemed (barring the odd skipped frame) pretty authentic. That apart, there was nothing remarkable about this film.

And now, back to those opening five minutes. One particular image stayed in my mind and I couldn't shake it. Indeed, when the film was starting I wasn't sure what I was watching until it was blindingly obvious. I am an animal lover, and I was drawn to the PETA website from whose films the early minutes of Seed are taken, and on there I witnessed a longer version of the animal cruelty scenes... and I cried my eyes out. If this film does nothing else, let it at least open people's eyes to the vile cruelty of those who exploit animals for skins nobody needs. Jennifer Lopez and other stars have recently taken to swanning around in real fur, and as far as I'm concerned they are bigger monsters than a guy with a sack on his head. Maybe - just maybe - that was Uwe Boll's point? We may abhor animal cruelty, but covering our eyes and pretending it doesn't happen won't make it go away!

Completely agree with everything you said. I wish animal cruelty would be stopped, but as the other comment on this post proves, there are unfortunately far too many deranged, heartless and despicable imbeciles in the world.
