I'm kind of surprised that this movie isn't better known. Maybe it came out at the wrong time - it would have been more at home in the more daring 70s. The premise - a role-reversal of "The Most Dangerous Game" with an army of women led by an abused ex-soldier hunting down and decapitating corrupt military men on a remote island - is simply irresistible. Sure, it may be heavy-handed as a feminist allegory, and it doesn't make much sense either (it takes 7 years and 20 missing men for some thick army heads to figure out that something is wrong, and when they do they send only one man "undercover" on the island, much like a sheep is sent to the slaughterhouse), but it is great fun on a trash/cult level, with some intense moments especially near the end. After all, we all got to leave this world sometime, and dying by the hand (or the foot, or the knife, or the arrow) of Merete Van Kamp must rank as one of the best ways to go! (**1/2)
