Nasty - nasty - nasty
4 March 2008 | by (Maidstone, Kent, England) – See all my reviews

I have given this 9 out of 10 for purely the gore effects alone. The rest of the film is weak but for all the gore hounds out (myself included) it is a serious assault on the senses so don't watch this with your female partner as you will be single by the end of the film as most of the serious stuff is at the end.

Believe me the effects are very very good, so good in fact that a rumour existed that this was not special effects ! but if you can find it (almost impossible here in the UK) then make up your own mind but be warned its hard viewing.

I have only seen it in the original German language and I am not sure if it has even got a DVD release but I may be wrong (I am searching now).
