A truly original, shocking and terrifyingly possible horror film without any of the genre conventions. But this is indeed a horror movie in the worst sense, its completely plausible.

Well, the library does carry some porn...disturbing movie with cinematic characteristics.

Unrelentingly grim - and this is from someone who likes dark arty films. The quote on the cover "hilarious" led me to believe it was a black comedy. Its not. A family endures a hellish existence under the total control of the father.

The animal abuse (a cat gets brutally killed) tremendously dropped the score here for me. If it weren't for that I would probably give it a bit higher but it's not the type of film that I would recommend to anyone, let alone remember. There were so many bad scenes and no plot whatsoever. Was there even a plot or story? I was very confused whilst watching it. It seemed like there were just many disturbing scenes smashed together to make one highly messed up film.

We need more of this from cinema. Make films that we've never quite seen before. Just great ideas bringing this to life from this director. 4/5

This was an extremely original film. I was entertained throughout. I can see how this film wouldn't be for everyone. Extremely bizarre and extremely graphic. The sex and nudity in this movie are extremely graphic. Full frontal male and female nudity and, from what I could tell, actual penetration. There are also a few scenes of extreme violence. Beyond those facts is a very interesting, and at times very funny, film. I recommend it for anyone who likes strange, dark comedy and does not mind graphic sex and violence.

I found this to be a very disturbingly dark and bizarre movie. There was nothing "alternately hilarious" in it. I would not recommend this to anyone.

This is one crazy movie. It is disturbing in some scenes. It follows a Greek family that makes the Tenenbaums look functional. The father wants to protect his grown children from the cruel world through isolation, but it is the isolation that seems to corrupt them. Some of the scenes are funny, but it is dark humor. I am impressed that this kind of movie could be made. It is by far the darkest comedy I have ever seen.

Incredibly bizarre and disturbing film. There were quite a few brutal scenes that left me feeling sick to my stomach - one in particular had me squealing out loud! This is a provocative film however, not just shocking....
