Ugly and racist exploitation flick.
12 December 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

The action of Mario Siciliano's "Skin Them Alive" takes place somewhere in Africa.A mercenary team is raping black women and killing black men.Depraved mercenaries are led by Franz who hides a stash of diamonds.His money-hungry brother decides to steal Franz's diamonds to get himself enough dough to travel to US."Skin Them Alive" features plenty of violence and three ineptly staged rapes.The script is surprisingly racist and the cast is gleefully ugly.The cinematography is dreary and the score by Stelvio Cipriani is pretty bad."Skin Them Alive" was obviously influenced by Italian cannibal sub-genre,but there are no cannibals here.Fans of seedy Italian exploitation cinema should give this one a look,all others should stay far away.6 racists out of 10.
