The film was reportedly queued up at the infamous 'nipple piercing' scene. This incident is commonly and erroneously attributed to having happened to cannibal serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.

Short, but not exactly 'sweet' rough little porn flick!
2 February 2007 | by The_VoidSee all my reviews

This nasty grindhouse 'porn' flick has something of a notorious reputation, and it's certainly not unfounded! The film completely bleak throughout, and despite the fact that there's plenty of graphic sex scenes that spare no gory details, the film isn't very erotic. This led me to question why exactly I was watching this. I don't have an answer...but I'm glad I did see this film (I think). I consider myself a fan of sleazy hardcore films, and this film couldn't have been too much sleazier if it tried. The 'plot' focuses on Rebecca, a young girl who is the victim of a father who sexually abuses her. We know he does this because we get to witness it! …In a scene that doesn't hold back and goes on for rather a long time. After that, Rebecca runs away to a school where the headmaster abuses the female pupils, all of which are nymphomaniacs anyway. The atmosphere is very grubby, and it's always clear that this film cost little more than a few pennies to make. The acting is completely ridiculous, but the film gets points as the bondage and torture scenes look very real. I have to criticise the choice of actresses though; why do the makers of rough porn flicks always hire ugly women? The soundtrack is memorable...although that's because it's been lifted wholesale from John Carpenter's Halloween! Overall, The Taming of Rebecca is likely to be a hit for fans of this sort of stuff. I can't say I really loved it, but at least it did what it says on the tin.
