Storyline

A gruesome homage to the cult Amicus anthology Asylum, Cradle of Fear unfolds four screamplays all linked by the unspeakable need of an incarcerated child killer to wreak vengeance on those responsible for his imprisonment. Helped by deranged angel Dani Filth, who leaves a trail of charnel house death in his crimson wake, the cannibal convict forces two Goth vamps to endure a one night stand from hell, two tough female robbers to see through each other, an obscenely rich coke-head to chop up more than a few lines and an internet surfer to descend into madness when he uncovers the ultimate web depravity. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Chief Inspector Roper: Sit down Pete. We got the lab results back, you're not gonna like it. The finger-print on the medalion is Kemper's.
Detective Neilson: You're having a fucking laugh aren't you sir?
Chief Inspector Roper: I wish I was Pete. But the results are one hundred percent positive, it's Kemper's.
Detective Neilson: Bollocks.
Chief Inspector Roper: I've spoken to Dr Ross at the hospital...
Detective Neilson: Dr Ross is a stupid cunt, sir. Don't listen to her.

Everyone will suffer now!
17 October 2004 | by SystematicerSee all my reviews

It SURPRISINGLY had a plot! ;) I've seen movies with less plot (I don't wanna mention Asian movies but...). I thought the camera wasn't bad at all for a cheap movie like this, and also the atmosphere wasn't too bad. There is no real reason for most things people do and the way they react to what happens. Although I do think that about a lot of movies, in this case it was horrible, of course.

It ripped off some movies SO badly just for single scenes. The acting was bad but I've seen worse. The movie was bad but I've seen worse. Watching this film is an experience between boredom, laughing fits, death wish, sadism, horniness and entertainment on a low level.

So if you like gory movies with stupid plots this one is the right film for you.

I gave it 3/10, because it CAN be entertaining if you don't expect to see a good movie and you're in the right mood.
