I Have Already Seen Similar Sadism Before
25 October 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

"Jue Ming Pai Dui" a.k.a. "Invitation Only" is another brutal film of sadism and torture. I do not like this sub-genre of horror and I have already seen similar sadism before, since the stories are very alike with a shallow pretext to show graphic tortures. This unpleasant film is not the worst slasher and the special effects and makeup are very realistic but unfortunately the plot is ridiculous. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "Acesso Restrito" ("Limited Access")
