Strange and affecting, this low budget quickie is just that little bit different and well worth a watch. With a running time of only sixty minutes, I was astonished at the length of the opening credits and indeed, thought maybe I had fast forwarded to the end! The movie soon gets going, however, and then it is sex, violence gore and opera all the way. Not just opera, either, the imaginative soundtrack also includes, local and western rock as well as Cambridge's King's College Choir. Some of the goriest moments get the most beautiful music and by the end the combination of erotic and bloody visuals and harsh and inspiring sounds combine to help create an irresistible nightmare fantasy. I became irritated by all the cackling laughter but despite this enjoyed this the more it went on.
