Storyline

Frigga lives with her parents on their farm. Unable to speak after being horrifically raped by an elderly man when she was young, her parents spend the majority of their money on speech therapy classes for their daughter in the hope that one day, she will speak again. One day, Frigga misses the bus to get to her speech therapy class. She accepts a ride off a suave looking gentlemen named Tony who pulls up beside her. Once they are in town, he takes her for a meal. Afterwards, he takes Frigga back to what appears to be his bachelor pad. He gives her wine that has probably been drugged, as she passes out after drinking it. The man then takes no time in bringing a crooked doctor in to get her fixed on high class heroin. After announcing to Frigga that she is now dependent on heroin and cannot last more than 48 hours without it, she must work as a prostitute for him. Frigga, obviously not thrilled by this news, attempts escape twice, but to no avail. On getting her very first client, she ... Written by the_mushroom_auditorium

Mute and Beautiful? I'm in love.
1 December 2007 | by (Happy Land, who lives in a Gumdrop House on Lolly Pop Lane) – See all my reviews

The story of a young, beautiful woman with an unfortunate past being forced and manipulated into being a "stable girl" for a sleazy pimp. Well, One Eye isn't just the angelic figure she appears to be. She's full of vengeance and she's forming a plan that will avenge her and her family. But don't take my word for it, check out Thriller: A Cruel Picture and see for yourself.

They Call Her One Eye aka Thriller: A Cruel Picture is one revenge flick all fans of the genre should seek out. I personally thought it was a very well done slow burn revenge film. But there are many fans of the genre out there, that thought it was too slow. There are also some scenes where it's like "okay, let's go." Weird part, it's during the action scenes. You'll know what I mean when you see the flick. But there are many scenes where you won't notice the time flying by. Especially when Christina Lindberg is butt naked. God, what a sight that is. She's reason enough to check this film out. The other main actor who plays the bad guy/capturer does a very good job with his role. He really delivers his lines very well. All in all, Lindberg and They Call Her One Eye is easily one of the better revenge flicks out there, and everyone that considers themselves a fan of exploit/revenge flicks owes it to themselves to catch this baby....just don't treat her poorly.
