Super intense, wow! Fasten your seat belts kids! :-o
Essential viewing for those with strong stomachs. A film which isn't afraid to cast a light on the trauma that horror loves to depict, but too often refuses to engage with.
still one of my favourites.
This film will fuck you up for the rest of your life.
Unforgettable. Stays with you days later . Classic
