Makes Cannibal Holocaust Look Like a Terrytoons Jaunt...
23 March 2012 | by (Aulendorf) – See all my reviews

Few films can leave you feeling destroyed afterwards. This incredibly powerful film is so well realized, that you may be murmuring to yourself in a state of prolonged oblivion for days. About a wizardess or something but that's not important, the plot being merely a framework whereupon to dangle, like strips of sun dried flesh, the directors horrifying Truths. It is truly horrifying. Not by content, but delivery. Do not take this film lightly. When I saw it, horror diehards were clearing the theatre and my girlfriend vomitted. This dead pan, grizzy look into the doings of foreign mystics, leaves you deeply disturbed and disgusted. This is tradgy at it's most refined. desperation at its' peak, and the Truth is all too chilling. this film is a deep look into what Mankind fears. Check this flick out. It will leave you speechless afterwards, and scarred for life.
