The biggest waste of one dollar ever
23 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this movie on a shelf of one dollar bargain DVDs at the grocery store. Along with this, I also bought a DVD that came with two Bruce Lee movies. That was proof that some things that cost only a dollar really aren't all that bad. Unfortunately, the rape movie (that has so many different titles that I don't even know what to call it) completely changed my outlook on the one dollar bill forever. Never would I have guessed that a movie could be so bad that it actually made me want that one dollar I paid for it back. Normally a wasted dollar isn't that big of a deal, but I seriously feel like I was the one being cheated by having this garbage moved into my possession. The grocery store should have been paying me to take it off their hands, and not vice versa.

IMDb's 1,000 word limit certainly isn't sufficient for listing every flaw this movie has, and it's not worth anybody's time to actually go through so much trouble, so I'll just be brief. The movie looks like it was shot with a camcorder (actually, it probably was). In fact, it has the production values of a home-made porno film. There's really nothing even remotely entertaining about it. In fact, it's basically just scenes of women getting raped, a bunch of talking, and people getting arrested. There's nothing else to it. That's why it's sitting in by garbage can right now.

I'd like to be more thorough than that, but you really can't be with this sort of movie. In fact, I almost believe that this movie was made for the sole purpose of being a gag gift. If I were to watch Children of the Living Dead right now, I'd probably enjoy it quite a bit, since it's still several leagues ahead of this movie (and no, that wasn't a hyperbole).
