Director Alexandre Aja’s latest film — Piranha 3D features a man getting his penis bitten off by killer fish. And that’s a major Hollywood film. So one has to expect far worse, in terms of violence, from his earlier stuff. He doesn’t disappoint. Director of the remake of Wes Craven’s disturbing family-in-peril film The Hills Have Eyes, Aja preceded that by three years with this French horror flick about a girl who witnesses the slaughter of her friend’s family while staying at their home. There are a lot of sharp objects in this film (knives, axes, chainsaws), and they’re all used in very effective ways. Yet for all the violence, it’s the film’s unforgettable ending that leaves the audience feeling most violated.
Where the hell is Martyrs? The writer of this article has definitely not seen the French movie Martyrs!
I never thought I'd see a snuff film. No Tanks Gibson. I am fairly sure that in only one Gospel are the Jews recorded as saying Let the guilt be on us and our generations, I paraphrase. I wonder why Gibson picked that one to put on the screen. Usually the Passion story makes me tear up. Gibson movie reminded why I do not go to horror film.
