I just saw the movie. The turtle scene...Wow, just wow! Why the fuck would they actually kill a real turtle just to make movie!? Especially like that!? The fact that they killed real animals in the making of the film is just sickening. It's a good movie overall though (Besides the animal cruelty).
Of course it's good. It's a classic in exploitation films. It's one of the best and most acclaimed. Of course it's not as disturbing as it used to be, by today's standards, but it's certainly pretty intense. I mean, it's an exploitation films, so of course it's 'disturbing', but I mean, who says disturbing is a bad thing?!
