Storyline

One dark and stormy night, a middle age prison escapee haphazardly breaks into the luxurious mason of a wealthy and privileged family and rapes the young wife in front of her bound husband. A year later, the son conceived by the rapist comes into the world. At the age of sixteen, he studies Nazi atrocities in history class, and feels the awakening of his inner brutality. The time has come. He launches a journey to let off a long-held grudge against the abusive foster father and to seek out a reunion with his genetic dad. He lures out his real father through newspaper ads and invites him to the secret torture chamber in the basement of the house where he confines abducted girls. Their feast of lust and perversion has now begun. Written by Nikkatsu

very well done
3 December 2005 | by (Las Vegas) – See all my reviews

The comment I read on the main page was very detailed, so I'll keep it brief. I agree with all the sentiments stated.

This film is unusually well done, with surprisingly good acting for the genre. In particular the scene of the girl realizing her sadistic side and whipping her female former boss (who was a total bitch to her). It may be somewhat subtle, but her facial expressions (and look in her eyes especially)... very convincing and definitely seems as she enjoys herself. Highly recommended, even if for this scene alone. At times it does move a little slowly, but I've watched it several times and can't say have ever found it to be boring. Of course you have to enjoy this genre. Overall one of the best of it's kind.
