Roger Ebert refused to assign this film a star rating for his review (not to be confused with giving it a zero star rating, which he hands out to the very worst films that he sees), saying it doesn't really matter whether the film is perceived as good or bad. He closes the review by writing, "[The film] is what it is and occupies a world where the stars don't shine." See more »

As was stated in previous reviews, this movie is senselessly grotesque and has no true point...but most horror movies don't need a point. It had a very twisted YET very unique plot. How many people have redone the whole damsel in distress horror movie. The monster tearing people apart has been done to death. I understand that Six meant this as a dig in response to getting such poor reviews before...but it really is a work of art.
My argument: it has a unique plot, it has a believable character (in the doctor), and it certainly goes to extreme lengths to set it apart from cult classics and new generation gore fests. It IS a work of art. Six should be applauded for his creativity and gall to go where no one went (or wanted to go) before. He meant to make a statement, and he did.
Like it or not, it makes an impression.
(P.S. I wasn't a fan, but I don't have to like it to call it a work of art)
