This is one of those things which sidestepped my expectations completely. I was expecting a low-budget schlock-fest but really this was almost perfectly-realized. Production value is shockingly high. The story is nicely linear and each actor is quite perfect for his or her role. The two women play porn stars (maybe) and they act like porn stars. But since the vast majority of their line-readings are moans that's perfect. And Dieter Laser is just fundamentally creepy.
The story/message itself is a matter for interpretation by each viewer. There was definitely some shock for the sake of shock, but I like to think that the lead is a surrogate for the filmmakers.
Good, sketchy times. I dug it enough to appreciate it and I will absolutely watch the sequel.
this was great! it held my interest the entire time and i had no clue as to how things were going to develop. i feel sort of like this is in the same vein as "hostel" but way better. more naturally disturbing to me, instead of hostel which seemed to try too hard for shock value. i have never seen anything remotely close to this sort of a plot and i love that. tom six must be one highly "disturbed" person to come up with something like this in his brain. or just obsessed with people eating poops. it was halfway between outrageous camp and horror. i think it's awesome.
