Product Description

In the tradition of Japanese Pink cinema comes this shocking, violent and sex-filled movie that caused an outrage when it was screened at the Chicago Film Festival. Starring the former Miss Philippines, the stunning Maria Isabel Lopez (in her most revealing role ever), SILIP - DAUGHTERS OF EVE is an eye-opening example of raw and savage filmmaking from one of the Philippines' most innovative directors, Elwood Perez. Set in the beautiful and remote countryside of Ilongo, the story tells of three young women and their struggle to come to terms with their own sexuality against a background of religious oppression and male brutality. Mondo Macabro is pleased to present a 2-disc edition of one of the most extraordinary movies ever released on DVD. SILIP - DAUGHTERS OF EVE has been a well-kept secret amongst collectors of arcane and extreme films, talked about in awed tones but rarely seen... until now! Presented completely uncut and uncensored, SILIP - DAUGHTERS OF EVE is the ultimate cult movie and guaranteed not to disappoint.

    The movie opens with one of the major characters, Simon Kalabaw (played by Mark Joseph), clobbering a buffalo over the head with a poleax in the presence of distressed, crying children. The butcher pounds away until the animal collapses, slits its throat, eviscerates it, and decapitates it.

    After this extremely disturbing scene, the movie unfolds to portray the lives of several people in a small Philippine village, played by a cast of talented actors. Tonya, played by Maria Isabel Lopez, is a chaste woman and a fill-in for the town's ill Catholic priest; she is the substitute "teacher" who inculcates in her pupils abstinence and purity, and who warns the girls of the dangers of yielding to their sexual desires for men, whom she calls devils. Selda (Sarsi Emmanuelle) is her antithesis, a woman who relishes and indulges in carnal pleasures. Simon, the icon of masculinity, is revered by Selda; by his girlfriend (Myra Manibog), who can't tame his waywardness; and by Tonya herself, who struggles to repress her desire for him because of her religious beliefs. Even Pia (Pia Zabale), a girl of about twelve, is obsessed with Simon.

    Silip is filled to the brim with nudity and simulated (though convincingly realistic and highly erotic) sex; both Maria Isabel's and Sarsi's graceful feminine forms are a delight to behold. The violence in the movie is fierce and visceral, requiring a strong stomach on the part of the viewer.

    But the movie does more than aim for cheap, exploitative thrills. It effectively underscores how the church pointlessly exerts too much effort on condemning sex instead of addressing far more important realities such as the selfishness, cruelty, and barbarousness inherent in humanity. Few are exempt from committing atrocities in this film.

    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.

    Silip (Elwood Perez, 1985)

    Those who know Japanese film are most likely familiar with pinku, or "pinky violence", the odd Japanese film subculture that combines the hardboiled crime film and the softcore erotica genre. (Gate of Flesh, reviewed elsewhere in this issue, is one of the best-known early pinkies.) Filipino filmmakers, caught in a combination of awe at the success of pinku films in Japan and stress at working in a repressive regime, developed bomba, a Filipino version of the pinky. Silip is by far the best-known bomba film outside the Philippines. For the most part, this is because the movie is likely to cause its hapless viewer to sit there staring at the screen, drooling and shaking, and every once in a while shouting "WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?" at the top of his lungs. Silip is what would happen if Alejandro Jodorowsky tried to make a porn film. Or, alternately, what would happen if the Dark Brothers teamed up with Ruggero Deodato to film Let Me Tell Ya 'bout Cannibal Chicks. (I rush to add, after making those comparisons, that Ron Jeremy does not appear anywhere in this film.)

    Bomba queens Maria Isabel Lopez (a former Miss Philippines who bears more than a passing resemblance to Jessica Alba) and Sarsi Emmanuelle star here as childhood friends gone very separate ways. Emmanuelle plays Selda, who went off to the big city and has become a party girl, while Lopez is Tonya, who stayed, became a religious fanatic, and now preaches a decidedly anti-male message to the villagers, after coming to believe that all men are devils. She believes this because she got dumped by Simon (Mark Joseph), the town's most eligible bachelor. The fact that he's married doesn't stop him from behaving like it, anyway.

    Wow, is simply put when viewing this movie.... This is why Asian cinema is considered to be the most extreme genre of film making.... Not for the faint of heart if you love animals or respect the catholic religion... Possibly one of my favorite movies to come out of Asia... It is also a very steamy erotic movie with lots of sex on the beach and in a bamboo stick home....
