In a Word..... TERRIBLE
Saw a few recent vlogs comparing this to other modern shock social horror flicks like "A Serbian Film" and thought I'd see what the hype was about.
This is pure shock and horror for its own sake. Nothing really resembles a coherent story line and what it does try to do with the plot is so terribly put together that it just comes off as all round "B" movie material.
There is no social commentary in regards to the Pinochet dictatorship, its just a mask used to show horrible characters doing horrible things that make no sense in context.
Avoid this at all costs, sure there are some extreme scenes but all of these lack the weight and impact really needed to become memorable due to the hopeless direction/acting/writing.
