This is one of the most brutal and disturbing horror flicks I've seen in a long time. The only reason I rated the queer side down a bit was because the lesbian relationship was obsessive and destructive and almost gives an anti-gay message... but I don't believe it was intended that way. If you are planning on seeing this movie, try to see the unrated/uncut version as the R rated version is hacked to bits. If you don't like subtitles... suck it up for this one... half of it is in French and half in English.
