Butchered.
6 February 2011 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

A police academy student trying to make enough money to marry his girlfriend takes a lucrative job.It turns out that he actually joined a gang of criminals.During one night the gang abducts,rapes and kills a woman,cuts her body into pieces and throws dismembered remains in various places out of the car."Kinatay" aka "Butchered" is an ugly and disturbing horror drama with truly repulsive characters.This is an unflinching representation of the rape,murder and dismemberment of a prostitute in the Philippines that made Roger Ebert angry.Famous critic hated "Kinatay" with passion.Fortunately I found this film strangely hypnotic and very disturbing.The violence is not terribly graphic,but there is a suffocating aura of utter depravity and evil.9 out of 10.
