While the theatrical release was uncut, the German DVD release was cut by ca. 1 minute to to keep its "Not under 18" rating from the FSK. The uncut version was released with a SPIO/JK approval (resulting in various sale restrictions). See more »
well, the one thing it had going for it was the near absence of comedy/parody, which has absolutely no place in the horror genre. it also had some decent production value (photography, lighting, and editing)
more importantly though, this is a movie for an immature audience who'se only pay off comes in which way the chainsaw will be used to dismember a body on screen.
this film has no heart, non existent characters and stupid dialogue.
they could had greatly improved this film by dropping the whole failed notion that gore = fun, and focusing itself on the addiction of the lead character. by taking the proper steps to flesh out the paranoia and discomfort of the drug addiction maybe we could actually care about the brother/sister relationship, alas, the characters exist only to fuel childish desires to see them cut limb from torso. this movie needed to be MUCH darker, mature, and impart the seriousness of violence and how disgusting and horrific it really is, however, since the characters do not follow any arc in any sensical manner all that was left in this shell of a movie is its blood and guts, and without a heart or a point, why should we care?
all in all. a pointless endeavour.
