an effective, intelligent and well made thriller.
12 October 2002 | by (manchester, england) – See all my reviews

this is an interesting, little known and entertaining film about a dutch cop on the trail of a nasty group of rapists. certain scenes are not for the squemish particularly the opening brutal gang rape which even by todays standards is pretty strong. this caused censorship problems for the film makers when it was originally released way back in the 70s and understandably detracts alot of viewers. if ever the term 'cult movie' deserved to be tagged on a european co-production then this is it! highly recommended but do try and see an uncut version.
