Poorly paced (downright dull for the majority of the first fourty minutes) and more conventionally plot-driven than most Euro-cult thrillers, still stylish and enjoyably sadistic Last House rip-off. Macha Meril is pretty fantastic though, just a bit of a slug to get to the good bits (and they are amazing, Sade would be proud). "She's as tight as a frightened asshole!"
I don't know what exactly I was expecting from this (I have some appreciation for Lado's *Short Night of the Glass Dolls*), but the viewing experience was, in a word, awful. No reason to watch the film again (and, in hindsight, no reason to watch it in the first place). Even the presence of so many Argento regulars provided no saving grace from its particular form of unrelenting (and pointless) despair and sleaze.
Rape/revenge movie billed as an unofficial sequel to The Last House on the Left. Just as depraved as that film but done with more technical skill, which just makes the whole thing more uncomfortable (which it should be). The transformation of an early victim into an assailant is the most disturbing aspect.
