Christina Lindberg with an eye-patch take a shotgun and shoot away bad guy in one of the grimmest and most disturbing rape-revenge stories. Even if it is technically inept, has lousy editing and is badly acted, the memory of Lindberg is etched into my brain. The theatrical version is best though as an alternate version has edited-in real sex scenes with body doubles that cheapen the film.
It certainly lives up to it's title but a disturbing, visceral first half is let-down by a pedestrian, repetitive second and is ultimately compromised by it's cheap, exploitative nature. Along with Fujita's Lady Snowblood, this is allegedly the Swedish inspiration behind Kill Bill and, despite it's problems, still manages to tower above Tarantino's effort
A classic revenge thriller, Christina Lindberg makes for a stunning protagonist a midst all the brutality. Avoid the uncut version though, the studio inserted nasty porn segments without the permission of Vibenius. So keep an eye out for the special edition which retains all the violence & removes the unnecessary close up penetration shots.
I managed to see the full uncut version. Despite being pornographic, I found this movie a true indicator to how the ugly world of sex trafficking truly is. The sound track is incredible and perfectly matched to the slow-motion revenge scenes. A fantastic piece of 70s exploitation cinema. Slow and creeping.
