This review is from: Silip: Daughters Of Eve (DVD)
I am a true fan of movies that shock (both visual and subject matter) and this movie delivers. When there is a movie that causes me to look away, I must give it reconition. This surely is not for the faint of heart or easily offended. It is 'wrong' on so many levels - brutal animal violence, violence involving children, rape and sexuality. I must disagree with the editorial reviews relating this to the Asian 'Pink' movies, I believe this movie has created it's own genre. This is closer in style of the great 'Cannibal Holocaust' and other of the erotic/shockers of the seventies.
Please do not get me wrong, the movie is not just a shocker, it is a great story with some good acting. The shocking scenes are relevent to the storyline and not just put in to create shock.
I hate the cover and believe it does not do the movie justice. That is a scene in the movie, but makes it appear as a cheesy '70s erotica, not the darker, brutal movie that it truley is.
You will either love or hate this movie, I personally do believe that there will not be an inbetween viewer.
5 stars for the movie overall, I did deduct one for the inacurate subtitles (using words and phrase that you know are not 'native') and the scenes filmed with a dirty camera lense.
