    ★★★½

    This film is not going to be everyone's cup of tea but there was something about the whole feel/setting that just really worked for me. Of course it is cheep and more than a bit silly in parts but there are still some striking moments and images throughout. I can not tell you this is a great film and I honestly would fully understand why you might not like it or even hate it. But as I say it worked for me and sometimes with B-movies or exploitation films thats all you can hope for.
