A sick sick film, but one that I think deserves respectIn '78, when released, people said it was sick and that it glorified rape. This is wrong, it is a feminist gore fest that shows a woman taking control and exacting revenge on her rapists.
It is not a good film, but it has been given unfair criticism.
It is poorly acted and directed, sure.
Also it contains one of the most uncomfortable scenes ever on celluloid. It's a bathroom scene where the woman is having a bath with one of her rapists (he doesn't remember her). She gets some scissors and under the water she cuts his cock off, with blood frothing to the surface.
It shocked me but I was compelled to watch because I wanted the girl to get her revenge on each of them for what they did , and I wanted them to die. Strange effect for a pro rape film... Strange effect anyway.
It aint a good film, but it has it's message, and should be treated with some respect.But I will only give it 2 stars as I still can't decide on whether it is trash or arthouse horror.
