The "Rectum" was in fact a genuine gay S&M club in Paris. The crew changed the name, redressed the set and added red lighting. The club was spread across the basements of three separate buildings and was so cavernous and confusing that many of the crewmembers became claustrophobic in it. See more »
When Alex walks down the stairs of the tunnel, the knot of her dress around her neck and her hairstyle change after the camera shows the sign "passage" and comes back to Alex's back. See more »
I'm sorry but this film goes way beyond what is acceptable. It's a great idea for a story and needs a certain level of violence to convey it but this goes too far. I am not a prude, am very broad minded and love a good blood n guts horror as much as the next person but this film made me feel physically sick! Showing a women get brutally raped for 10 mins and then beaten into a coma is not entertainment. Showing a man get his skull beaten to pulp with a fire extinguisher and actually see it cave in is not entertainment. I accept that both scenes were integral to the film but there was absolutely no need to make them so revolting and downright brutal.
I stopped watching half way through the rape scene, took the film out and promptly binned it. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone!
