This film is a faux-documentary made in 1971, (not 2007!). Not your typical horror film at all - the horror here is human rights abuses and police brutality. Loved it though - Stunning, dark, bleak.

To say this 1971 pseudo documentary movie resonates is an understatement. I am astounded at the brilliance and harrowing realism for its time ... it’s just beyond! I was glued from the beginning. Understandable why it was banned in its era. Bloody masterful
