i am the least conservative person you'll ever meet, but if you aren't horrified by this film, you're probably a sociopath. i watched the whole thing, but only in pieces. there's no need for this violence. this isn't blowing things up. from the crushing of a guy's skull with a fire extinguisher - with many more hits than is necessary to make a guy's face meat like in the movie - to the rape scene...this is disgusting.
we're still to early in our understanding of the brain, but this is real enough to make one have post traumatic shock syndrome. i don't want to say it should be banned, for i am not for censorship. but i think people who make things like this should be shunned.
again, i am a very liberal person. this was the most disgusting "film" i've ever seen.
