A young girl is abducted by a psycho, who bizarrely speaks backwards to her, while forcing her to watch films he's made of his previous victims, all nubile but rather rough looking German chicks who he rapes in a decidedly XXX manner... and that's about it.
Well, what can one say about this nasty little flick from underground German filthmeister Andreas Bethmann? It does exactly what it says on the tin, for starters. Psycho rapes chicks, then rapes some more, with juxtaposition of the protagonist victim watching this, while being subjected to wince inducing torture involving hooks. That having said, it does have a certain undeniable (albeit scummy) verve to it, with it partly being shot in this washed out monochrome style, that I'm not sure is a nod to German expressionism, or Bethmann merely attempting to justify what is essentially a grotty porn, by throwing in some horror overtones which are undeniably there btw, especially towards the end.
I'm giving this a 5/10 as it definitely kept my attention, but overall, I'm not sure what to make of it. I personally don't see the point of crossing horror with porn, and while Bethmann definitely manages to conjure up some sort of atmosphere with this, it's ultimately just a kinda depressing and nasty little porn flick that made me feel kinda grubby while watching it.
Recommended for... I dunno how to finish this sentence actually. Those that like to be shocked, I guess, but even for fans of extreme cinema, the endless porny rapes simply become repetitive, although no less depressing, so I guess there's nobody I could really recommend this to.
Bethmann is one uncompromising German though, I will say that for him...
