    In 1980, Deodato shoots this violent rape & revenge in the wake of the cult "The Last House on the Left" by Wes Craven, from which is it taken the main actor David Hess , also here  in a great actor prove.

    The film is a brutal home invasion, built very well through the inclusion of many psychologically disturbing scenes, others erotic and others sadistic, with a beautiful and evocative soundtrack by Riz  Ortolani.

    James Wan after a parenthesis in action (Fast and Furios, Acquaman) finally returns to horror, again amazes the viewer thanks to a subject and has a very original and unconventional script.

    What Wan does is mix various genres such as spirit horror, 80's Slasher and "Saw" style crime thriller, the result is completely convincing, and it is even more so in the splendid final plot twist.
    Something in the script doesn't fit perfectly, but the film is a breath of fresh air for the
    genre and for Wan's career

    Certainly one of the most underrated Spike Lee film. Raw, deep and touching, Spike shows us how difficult it is to escape from the social context in which one is born, with a little hope in the final.
    Perfect and experimental direction in some sequences. Harvey Keitel in great shape.
