exploitation from Chile
7 May 2013 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

This Chile flick has made some impression to Michael Biehn. He wants to do a remake about this brutal flick that is so-called based on true events.

This flick is shown at a lot of horror conventions or festivals but seeing it I can't really say that it is a horror. It isn't even a revenge flick but a pure survival flick. It do has a few nasty and brutal moments were the red stuff is flying around but you will not be amused to see it due the brutality.

This flick opens with a man killing a woman who appears to be his wife. His two sisters are raised in the woods by their father but he abuses them and rapes them throughout their teens. Of course one got pregnant but having no money the baby is raised with meat. A retarded is raised. The only way to survive is selling drugs but one sudden moment things go wrong and the father is jailed. The sisters ran away with the retard and are trying to survive and not being captured by the drug dealers.

It's from there that it rather has some nasty things to offer like when two hikers are in the woods and seeing one of the girls naked they are out to rape her again. But she has a secret, cannibalism.

Not your typical story with one of the sisters becoming a hooker and going for blow jobs one after each other. The final is maybe a bit of revenge but it's a blood bath galore.

If you think that this is a normal flick about drugs forget it. This is pure exploitation were I admit the story isn't always correct, the chainsaw scene will proof that. Two guns against a chainsaw and the chainsaw wins....

Nevertheless. I enjoyed it and the subs worked out fine. But again, not for everybody, surely a lot of horror geeks will stop it after a while but exploitation buffs will adore it.
