Empire Magazine Rated: 3/5 Sep 30, 2006 Full Review Kaleem Aftab The List The strong horror element of this fascinating film is added by the detached narrative stance, supported by the sumptuous colors of Chris Doyle's photography. Eat before you watch. Rated: 4/5 Apr 25, 2019 Full Review Keith H. Brown Eye for Film Rated: 4.5/5 Dec 7, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

Miguel M Es una pelicula que dio a un concepto del canibalismo a otro nivel. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/24 Full Review Subterranean B Dopo aver adorato il corto nel segmento di Three Extremes, il film ha reso l'idea più completa. Il tema è ostico per le persone che non hanno mai ragionato sull'alimentazione animale, superato questo ostacolo culturale il film descrive in modo succulento e carnale come la vita e la morte si intreccino nelle relazioni che racconta. Bai Ling nel ruolo di Zia Mei è una dea della seduzione, corona la sua performance una delle migliori scene di sesso spinto, letteralmente, mai viste. Belle le location e la fotografia che le descrive. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/13/23 Full Review Hazkinz amazing movie would recommend. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review jjjjjj j The most disturbing movie I have ever seen. What makes this movie so unique is where it get its "horror" from. It doesn't rely on serial killers or supernatural forces causing horror. Though there is some supernatural effects in the movie, what causes the horror is "regular people", there desires, and what they are willing to do to get what they desire. I really would not recommend seeing this movie unless you are willing to put up with some pretty disturbing stuff. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member While this film had a low budget and it shows at times, it is one I will never forget. It tells a story of a woman obsessed with her past image of youth and beauty, she is willing to do the unimaginable to obtain her radiance once again as it fades with age. An issue many people face after their mid-life. Stomach turning, disturbing, and queasy slow burn of a horror will have you watching til the very end. I recommend if you're into gore .
