Exceptionally Graphic - Banned in the UK.

This is one of the very few 1970's horror movies still refused a certificate from the BBFC. The plot revolves around a couple of deranged brother's whom capture, abuse, rape, torture and subject a group of girls to a hideous display of sick, cruel games at their secluded home in the middle of the remote countryside.

No longer available to purchase in any format, apart from the OOP original NTSC VHS version from the US, and even that wasn't rated.

An extraordinarily good movie, based on suspense, shock and classic fear. It really grasps the imagination and leaves you guessing for what scene will ensue next. Similar to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, though far superior in many respects. It also features a creepy 'Norman Bates' type mother, whom only speaks at certain times and from particular obscured angles.

Genuinely intelligent, a true horror movie the ages sadly forgot.
