Disgusting movie
31 October 2019 | by rhoda_s_girlSee all my reviews

This is a disgusting movie that's only purpose was to fulfill the directors misguided, gross, disgusting fantasies. Not only does it abuse women, but it shows horrible things with no consequences. Not only do people get defiled, raped, beaten, and peed on but has no sympathetic characters. Why is it that in his movies he almost always has his females characters hurt themselves??? It's like he hates women- and people actually like this gross disturbing sadism??? Feel ashamed of all the actors/actresses who are in this- obviously there have no morales and will sell their soul to the devil. He should be locked up in jail instead of celebrated- disgusting how people actually liked this...🤢🤢🤢
