Great HK rape and revenge shocker.
4 October 2006 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Five teenagers head into the woods on a camping trip and are stalked and terrorized by five locals who rape one of the girls and brutally murder her brother.The girl is so traumatized by her horrifying experience that she is sent to a mental hospital and is unable to testify at the trial,leading the judge to release the men for lack for evidence.The angry father of the insane girl and murdered boy goes to the woods and kills rapist killers one by one via homemade traps."The Beasts" aka "Flesh and the Bloody Terror" is obviously influenced by "The Hills Have Eyes","Deliverance" and "I Spit on Your Grave".The film is fast-paced and violent enough to bring the smile on the face of any self-respecting exploitation fan.The rape scene is pretty nasty and painful to watch.The acting is convincing and the guy who plays Snake is truly creepy.Give this rather obscure rape and revenge shocker a look.
