Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Transcends mere torture porn -- though there's plenty for the squeamish to squirm over here -- in its deftly controlled mix of empathy, grotesquerie and sardonic humor.
Fresh: You will gasp in horror at the prospect of what is about to happen and then you will giggle in delight that the film actually carries out what it threatens to.
Fresh: Debut director Sean Byrne has carved out a flick to stand beside Brian De Palma's high school horror classic Carrie, such is the beauty and brutality of his execution. It's the best entry to the Aussie horror canon since Wolf Creek.
Fresh: A blood-spattered, tongue-in-cheek horror comedy that features plenty of low-rent gore, some extra-cheesy lines and some terrific performances.
Movies this RAW and entrancing come around rarely. From start to finish my mouth hung open. Absolutely loved it and I would recommend it to anyone!
This is one of those rare horror/thriller films that pulls you right in, and never lets go. So intense.
I wanted more crazy, more blood so I got the unrated version. Definitely not over the top like American horror. The repetition of the song Am I Not Pretty Enough as well as the back and forth between the girls abusing him as well as his friend in a nice juxtaposition.
Both of these guys want it but on their terms. When it gets to be too much, it's no longer fun anymore. I guess now they know how women feel all the time.
The frontal lobe was awesome! That's all I'm gonna say.
