    this, and not stylized 70s homages, is what a modern jess franco film with a modest budget would be.

    this is a terrible movie. it is deeply condescending and moralizing yet shallow and misogynistic, all at once. it glorifies stylized violence, and then refuses to own up to its own violence (seriously, you're gonna have a cannibal scene and not show any violence, but DO have a very long, male gaze shower scene with two models?). it screams about the exploitation of women, yet constantly mocks the character with plastic surgery and features the violent rape of 13-year-old runawayโ€ฆ

    this movie has an absolutely perfect mix of taking itself 100% seriously, while also throwing all the weirdest crap they could think of at the audience. if it was a little off in either respect, it would be unwatchable, but hooper gets it perfectly right.
