Alice is brought back to her family after she is rescued from the men that kidnap her, but her nightmare is far from over since she continues to have constant flashbacks of her ordeal. She resents her parents because she believes they wouldn't pay for her ransom, since that is what she heard her captors say through a wall when she was kidnapped. Coming back to normal life is not easy for her because she has to deal with her parents, her boyfriend, and mix feelings she had for one of the captors that she had sex with in order to survive. Written by William Linares

Wretched sequel to good film..
3 August 2012 | by (Deutschland) – See all my reviews

It seems after the success of the fine thriller "La Orca" director Eriprando Visconti saw a way to make some more money, by continuing a story that should have ended with the first film. The young girl, released from her captivity, returns home to pout and scream and have numerous "flashbacks" which materialize in endless clips from the first movie. "Oedipus Orca" immediately dissolves into a turgid soap opera, when the girl embarks on a quest to find out if an old family friend had an affair with her mother years ago, and as a result could be her real father. Rather than following a more interesting story about the girl and her anger at her stepfather for not paying her ransom in the first film, we get a lot of nudity. And badly filmed sex scenes. This film is pointless in every way, and the director must have realised this, as he decided to stick in completely repulsive footage of cattle being shot in the head, gutted and skinned and decapitated on camera, in a scene that seems to go on forever. A scene that has absolutely nothing to do with the story at all. The tasteless scene only exposes the film for the garbage that it really is. It is hard to believe after seeing this one that director Eriprando Visconti is the nephew of Luchino Visconti, a man known for beautiful and tasteful art-house films. The original film "La Orca" is a very good film, but this sequel is so bad that it almost hurts the original. I wish I never saw this garbage.
