If you have ever wondered why in childbirth scenes we are never shown the actual umbilical cord this film is the answer. Save yourself the trip to the cinema and visit a meat market, kindly ask to be allowed to see meat get chopped and deboned you'll get the same feeling- plain disgust. The only impact the film will have on you is that you might consider becoming a vegetarian. Oh, and a 'shocking-plot give-away killer's scrapbook' and 'buckets of blood' and lines like "I'll be right back" will just make you shake your head and laugh.
The scariest thing in the entire film is the state of public restrooms in Yugoslavia's capital (they put Trainspotting's "worst toilet in Scotland" to shame.
The acting is actually good, the script semi-original and you might ask what went wrong- well, you can't identify with the victims because the characters simply -never - develop. It's scary when you see one splattered brain and a trail of blood but when brains are everywhere and blood is overflowing toilets that's when you head for the door.
I give it 2 out of 10 for the 3 funny lines it has, 1 cool scene at the end and a very cool leather jacket.
