    Very enjoyable (if thats the word?) exploitation movie - similar to I spit on your grave i suppose. Well worth getting if you like these kinds of movies.
    This is the film that Quentin Tarantino (Director: KILL BILL VOL. 1 & 2, PULP FICTION, RESERVOIR DOGS) called "the roughest revenge movie ever made!"
    He based the Darryl Hannah character on Christina Lindberg's 'One Eye' character.
    This is the complete uncut version so does include some Hardcore inserts - to be honest these really arent needed and do get in the way.

    yes this was a cult film for ages and has been passed around on the collectors circuit in various bootlegged forms, it is a bit strong for most peoples tastes and features a dubious (real/unreal ) scalpel eye incident! maybe not to everyones tastes but in this limited form it could e an investment...

    Like captaineyecatch says, if you don't go in for expoitation/grindhouse movies it won't be your cup of tea. I've been awaiting this baby for a long time, and given the aggro Synapse have had from the director I'm surprised it ever got released.

    definitely worth checking out if you like 70's/80's revenge flicks like "I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE" , "MS.45", "DEATH WISH 2 uncut version"
    or the underrated revenge flick "ROLLING THUNDER"

    I got to agree with captaineyecatch, that the hardcore porn footage or should I say inserted hardcore footage wasn't really nessersery and is the only reason why this film was banned otherwise its pretty tame in the violence department compared to something like straw dogs made 3 years earlier,
    I not saying its not violent cause it is, its just that they must have spent a shoestring on the fx department and this really hurts the movie in my opinion cause when someone gets a shotgun blast to the head it just looks so damn hilerious.
    too bad they could'nt get tom savini to do the fx which would had been mind blowing (pun intended) now just imagine a head explosion shot from "dawn of the dead" or "maniac" in this movie that would have been awesome


    can someone tell me if this movie has ever been on tv before?

    I was watching this on dvd the other night and got a vague feeling that I'd seen it before, I'm pretty sure this film has come on tv a long time ago, probably 15+ years ago it would have been broadcast on either bbc2 or channel 4, I'm almost positive it was channel 4.
    but I may be wrong
