(at around 1h 00 mins) After Von Geisler uses the pliers on the back of Alex's leg, he laughs and uses the phrase "Arbeit macht frei." This phrase, loosely translated as "work makes you free," is the infamous motto that was posted at the front of Nazi concentration camps during the Second World War, and still hangs on the Auschwitz concentration camp museum entrance today.

I saw this movie at Sitges International Film Festival on October, 2007, and I am still trying to survive to the shock. I've seen lots of gore movies as I am a big fan of these kind of genre in cinemas, but I hardly remember something so cruel, so brutal, so anti-human, so dirty and so extreme. It's one of those movies that you must not see with your girlfriend, otherwise you're exposed to have a deep argument about your film tastes. So you are on your own, if you have the chance to take a glimpse to this movie, don't hesitate. It's, by far, one of the most thrilling experiences in the land of gore movies for about the last 10 years.
