    Dark, disturbing and disorienting.

    DARK, DISTURBING AND DISORIENTING This film handles such heavy subjects as insanity, torture, abduction, corrupt police officers, white slavery, and much more and still manages to be entertaining. Much of this is due to the performance of Seamus O’Brien, who, as Sardu, delivers the sometimes surreal dialog completely straight faced. It is a shame this actor was killed by a burglar in his house early in his carreer, as I believe he could have been as great as Christopher Lee. The interaction with his assistant Ralphus (played by Luis De Jesus, who later found his way in the Star Wars universe as Ewok in Return of the Jedi) is very light-hearted, especially during some gruesome scenes of extreme horror. The music score also adds to a strange atmosphere by using very light themes during the heaviest scenes and rather disturbing sounds during rather comedic scenes but especially by not always using this technique, so that the viewer is constantly disoriented. The production value of the film is enhanced by director Joel M. Reed’s ingenious ways lighting, use of darkness and thus suggesting much more than there is without distracting from the story and the characters, but actually managing to add to the films atmosphere not in spite of, but because the limited budget. I very much doubt if the same wonderful result could be achieved, even today, over thirty years later, with a limitless budget and all the CGI effects in the world. The DVD includes, amongst many other things, a very revealing introduction by Lloyd Kaufman. Plus interviews with some of the actors and a highly informative audio-commentary by Eli Roth, director, writer and producer of such films as Cabin Fever and Hostel.
