  • Forget the hype/antihype cos this is a roller coaster ride of transgression

    Lets get one thing straight from the start. No one got hurt and no child was on set and saw anything sexual or violent in the making this film. This is not in any way child porn as some people who obviously either haven't seen the film or are retarded have commented . Its nothing like Cannibal Holocaust , Visitor Q ( ? ) , or anything else its been compared to. I can totally understand that this film is a form of catalyst to try and purge the memory of what went on in all the violence seen in the wars that split Yugoslavia … I saw things on TV at that time that were as bad as things seen in this film … I will never forget the sight of a little girl being taken from the wreckage of a bombed school, her arm hanging by a small piece of flesh having been blown off … I'll never forget that. The fact is that it does happen in war … And probably all the things you will see in this film have happened in Iraq recently … Backed by our disgusting governments and multi-nationals … Its what happens when you give men ( and women ) nothing but encouragement to be the animal inside … They become animals. Things do occur in this movie that you never thought you would see on the screen … But its not done in any pathetic juvenile manner like in Hostel or any of those boring pieces of torture porn … In fact Eli Roth could do a lot worse than watch this and learn to make a good film. But it is not all unmitigated horror … There's a few laugh out loud moments and one great audience cheer out loud moment … Homages to Cannibal Holocaust, Nightmares in a Damaged Brain, Videodrome and countless Giallo's with the product placement. And let's be honest, the baby scene is just 2010's homage to D'Amato's "Anthropophagus" It's one hell of a roller coaster ride of a film that is a true piece of modern transgressive cinema. It doesn't need the hopelessly stupid camera-work that ruined " Irreversible " … It is intelligent rather than stupid like the second half of ' Martyrs " which was really just a reworking of the directors earlier and far better film " House of Voices " The performances are great in a totally naturalistic way, apart from the one which I thought was odd … Until you see the end The only thing I would have changed was to have it stop at the end of the last shoot sequence and have a post title sequence where the survivors were on a train getting as far away as possible … I could have done without the last 5 minutes and that last line isn't THAT special But I didn't make it … Srdjan Spasojevic and his team did … And I respect his choice I'll be in the cinema on the first night watching this with an audience if it gets released in Britain … Cos there is going to be screaming and people running out and loads of fuss. But hell people … Its not real … And its so well done It's the first time I've been so affected by a film in about 15 years Its not a masterpiece … But it is Bloody Great
