When Kafka first talks with Bizzlebek, he mentions that he read "That story about the Penal Colony". He is referring to the short story, "The Penal Colony". In it, Franz Kafka described the last use of an elaborate torture and execution device that carves the sentence of the condemned prisoner on his or her skin in a script before letting him or her die, all in the course of twelve hours.

Of course not. Who'd want to let in a bunch of riff-raff off the street?

Despite the excellent black-and-white cinematography (which is seen for all but 15 minutes of this film), I canned this movie from my collection because the story was almost incomprehensible. It also was too depressing, too gloomy.
This really is more of a horror film than anything else with a few uncomfortable scenes as people are being killed and/or used as guinea pigs in experiments. I would think this would not appeal to most people who aren't in some form of counseling or therapy (or should be!).
Yet, that wonderful film-noir photography with great lights and shadows, made it intriguing to view.....once.
