Truly sickening in some scenes!
14 June 2002 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

"Faccia di Spia" is kind of a mondo movie.It is a propaganda film I think(I have it in Italian,so the plot wasn't fully understandable to me)and re-creates certain political events.The first hour is pretty tame,but after it the film suddenly crosses into sicko territory-it features some of the most shocking and cruel torture scenes I have ever seen!There's a brutal rape,a metal pin inserted into a guys penis and heated,eels shoved graphically into woman's vagina,arms hacked off with an axe and eyes gouged out.Apart from such sickening scenes the film is well-made and interesting.Recommended only for fans of extreme mondo movies.
