  1. Mihail, caine de circ's rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

    I was certainly going with a mindset designed for an exploitation movie, but i was also expecting some greatness here and there. The best thing this movie did was influencing Tarantino and Fererra. Rather underwhelming.

  2. Steve G.'s rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

    I'm just thankful Quentin Tarantino isn't as shit as all these shit films he loves.

  3. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

  4. Skinnedteen's rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

    A quiet wrath. The theatrical slow motion shots, it's atmosphere and character aesthetic makes up for the cheap shots that separates itself from other 70's revenge films like I spit on Your Grave and The Last House on the Left.

  5. Ethan's rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

    This is one of the most gruesome and relentless movies ever made. This is far superior to I Spit on Your Grave mainly because amongst all the carnage and mayhem there is some real passion here. Passion is what makes a film great.

  6. Matt Rolls's rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

    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

  9. Dorabella's rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

  11. letters never sent's rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

    B-Movies eh, what do you expect? Kind of guilty pleasure, I suppose?

  12. .:BuNNii:.'s rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

    Dull characters in a cheaply shot film. I honestly expected better.

  13. lina maj's rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

    My first Swedish B-film. Wonderful and annoying at the same time.

  14. AdrianM.'s rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

    Not sure if cheap, nonsensical, shit film or exploitation masterpiece.It's all a matter of perspective.

  15. samanthawalden's rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

    the setting in Thriller is mesmerizing and totally underrated, fall days have never looked so beautiful

  16. film_lies101's rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

    Some of the most beautiful slow motion shots captured on film. Seriously, even Peckinpah was never this poetic when it came to violence

  17. Junda Mane's rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

    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.

  18. Giles J Davis's rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

    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.

  19. Catarina C Gomes's rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

    So this is why mom didn't want me riding in cars with boys.

  20. Rita Nobre's rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

    acho que foi o filme que mais me chocou e marcou, pela negativa.

  21. Luis Valenzuela's rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

    Despite having a memorable protagonist and an interesting revenge story premise, the direction and narrative are flawed and had several inconsistencies. The killings just go on forever and are really tedious. Normally I would just give it 2* but for the premise it deserves at least 3. If it had been done with a more serious approach, the story and the situations could had a lot of potential to make a really dark film

  22. sick muse's rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

  23. Max Kazaam Wilde's rating of the film Thriller: A Cruel Picture

    This one really takes place in its own context in terms of a lot of sound choices and general editing. I would say that the choices made are extremely their own and creative and it all gives the film a great tone that is addicting to watch. What can be argued as flaws in the film, usually seem more like characteristic oddities and overall, I haven't experienced too much quite like it.
