This movie has haunted me for years.
30 March 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I think many people rated this low because of the sadness and horror of the subject matter. Rape, abuse, mind control - these are the terrible, but true, aspects of this movie. Watching this movie is not fun but the movie is based on a true story, and it deserves better than the low ratings it has gathered here. I first saw this movie 20 years ago, and it honestly haunts me to this day. I don't think this movie could be made today because of the graphic brutality towards the actress playing Candra Torres - even though it was based on a true story and Candra suffered everything you see. Knowing that it was real made it even more horrific. This is not a slasher film, but the violence toward this woman is still more than most people could bear to watch. I believe this is the reason that it is getting low ratings here. I can't imagine this film being shown on television now, but it is worth renting if you can find it, almost as a study of mind control and abuse. You have to know, however, that it won't be a pleasant movie to watch.
