This film is kind of a let down because it ends so abruptly that it seems like they simply cut off the last 20 minutes of the film. It has a beautiful look… great casting..menacing style and tone…shot by the cinematography of “Irreversible.” I am just upset because it so close to being great and then boom..over. See it if you’re a fan of “Deliverence”, “Last House on the Left”, and all those other films of that genre…. too bad….but definately look out for this director’s next film.

You can find copies on ebay… hasn’t been released in US yet…also there are copies floating around Chinatown for $5.
