WOW... ok this is the first review I've done in a few years so I may be a little rusty now with that said I'm a HUGE horror fan and have seen all of the popular "extremes" to come down the pipe in the last few years and my friends, in terms of extreme and downright disturbing content, this one puts them ALL to shame in the worst (and best) of ways!
The setup here is pretty simple (older porn star agrees to one last job for a huge payday yet isn't allowed to know anything about the script) and is told in a fairly straightforward slow burn-exploitation format but what sets this one so far apart is how real and well done the film is before the real horror starts. Milos (our protagonist) is just a family man trying to make ends meet and this is one of the few horror films where you Really feel for the main character and that's a big part of what makes all the downright SICK S@&$ that happens in the second half that much worse. The acting was a lot better than you'd expect from this type of film (especially from Milos) and helps add the emotional weight that really makes this a knee-breaker. Another huge aspect ASF gets right: this is scary as h@ll before anything really happens thanks to some absolutely top notch cinematography and a synth based score that will chill you to the bone and lets you know right away that some VERY bad things are coming and oh god do they ever...
After a couple of very uncomfortable shoots at the start of his "film" Milos tries to back out and he (and us viewers) are dropped into a nightmare that is not going to be soon forgotten. There isn't much to say that hasn't already been said in terms of shocking content but I'm still shaking this film off as I type this so here's my 2 cents anyway: there really is a line of "showing too much" and this film wallows in crossing it and assaulting the viewer with truly the most disgusting scenes ever put on legit film (at least in the uncut version)! Honestly I would have given this an 8 had this been the cut version and showed A LITTLE restraint. That's not to say this isn't a quality horror film because it is of the highest kind just one that's impossible to recommend because of said scenes and the very real damage they could have on people.
In closing this is our generation's "Dare Film" if you will. That ONE movie that you "bet someone won't watch" and for good reason. It's as much porn as it is horror and to say it's not for everyone would be the understatement of the year but ultimately I went in expecting a very strong political horror film and that's exactly what I got, and the need to take about 15 showers. It was clearly made by angry expert film makers that wanted to REALLY shock and make a good movie doing it and they succeeded in making one of the most disgusting and brutal films EVER. If that doesn't sound like something you're prepared for (and even most horror fans aren't) stay away, FAR AWAY
