Alternate Versions

The UK release was also cut, the distributor was required to remove sight of a murderer's erect penis during a scene of sadistic violence and threat which contained sexual undertones in order to obtain an 18 classification. This cut was made in accordance with BBFC Guidelines, policy and the Video Recordings Act 1984 and without these changes the film would have been refused classification in the UK. See more »

Well done
6 April 2015 | by modengoSee all my reviews

This is one of those well done, well rounded movies that focused on every aspect of the story. Only thing lacking in the whole movie might be the budget, not sure was the camera aimed to look 80's-90's-ish, but in a movie it doesn't even matter. Setback were indoors and outdoors scenes with bad sound quality, bad camera, looking like TV movies, but scenes were without any reproach. Maybe it could have been fixed in editing, since some scenes jump out from the movie with lack of quality, but than again, it might be the budget (although think it was sufficient). Anyhow, it's refreshing to see a story with unique standpoint, without a doubt has this been a big production it would be a blockbuster. Narative, scenes, everything is flowing in same direction, with few unavoidable clichés. Well rounded movie, deserves a solid score and definitely a recommendation.
