Classic Sex and Gore Fest
23 August 2004 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

First off this film is pure exploitation. This is sex and violence and really gross, even by todays standards. Its not the best film ever made, but if you want gore and worms and gross things with your beautiful naked women this is for you. This film belongs in the exploitation hall of fame.

A very bare bones explanation of the plot has a beautiful woman having an affair because she is bored with her husband of a couple of months. She wants to run off with her lover, who is also married, but he won't go. Getting out of her car on a lonely stretch of road she finds a phone and calls her husband who's cab driver. While she is waiting she is raped and killed by two guys. The husband uses the services of a black magician he once saved to get revenge on the killers and the lover. Its gross fun from that point on.

The sex is early on as we see the very beautiful wife naked in the shower and having sex with her lover. Proving that this is exploitation at its finest we have a slow motion topless jog along the beach.

This film has a reputation for being gross out royalty and its nice to report that this certainly is the case. This is a film that will have you going "yuck" quite often. Done before CGI this film is helped by knowing that what you see is what you get, people really are spiting up insects and such.

The problem for me was that it seems oddly paced. Don't get me wrong the plot moves, but at times it seems a bit talky, which is odd since what you see is what you need to see and hear.

See this film.

I rated it as a 7 out of 10, but thats for most people who want to see a gross out horror film from overseas. For hardcore exploitation film fans or those who love gross effects this is a classic and should be 10 out of 10.
