Lucas and Clementine live peacefully in their isolated country house, but one night they wake up to strange noise... they're not alone... and a group of hooded assailants begin to terrorize them throughout the night.
A couple are looking for their child who was lost in the tsunami - their search takes them to the dangerous Thai-Burmese waters, and then into the jungle, where they face unknown but horrifying dangers.
Best friends Marie and Alexia decide to spend a quiet weekend at Alexia's parents' secluded farmhouse. But on the night of their arrival, the girls' idyllic getaway turns into an endless night of horror.
A young woman's quest for revenge against the people who kidnapped and tormented her as a child leads her and a friend, who is also a victim of child abuse, on a terrifying journey into a living hell of depravity.
Successful, young, with a loving boyfriend on her side, Esther is a woman who seems satisfied with her life, nevertheless, ever since that profound laceration in her leg, underneath this elaborate facade, Esther conceals another, more compulsive self. Somehow numb to the pain, Esther, little by little, begins to develop an enthralling and equally compelling fascination for the taste of her own flesh, burrowing deeper and deeper into an unknown realm of self-mutilation and dreadful cannibalistic pleasure. Gradually, as the blind primitive impulses literally consume Esther, her ever-growing fits of fetishistic self-consuming rage will inevitably become noticeable to everyone, and above all, to her worried boyfriend. But he is just powerless against Esther's unsatisfied cravings.Written by
Good but other than disturbing you I don't see the point
Dark film about a woman who becomes fascinated with her skin and self mutilation after an accident leaves her with a wound. Graphic and tough to sit through the film raises the spotlight on an extreme form of behavior that in milder forms can lead to people cutting themselves. What makes things more disturbing is the behavior isn't explained, it just is. I liked the film, as much as one can, however I was disappointed in that the film just sort of ended. Clearly its a character study more then a narrative, but at the same time I didn't get anything out of it, I just finished the film with a sense of "thats it?" Recommended only for those with strong constitutions and those wishing to be disturbed
