(1986) In a Glass Cage

Nothing like an intense few hours of Nazi inspired child rape to get you through the work week. At its heart, I believe this film to be a revenge horror but it’s disturbing content makes a lot of the themes hard to distinguish.

Upfront, the thing to first warn someone about would be the graphic scenes of child murder. Even more disturbing than that is the reading of an old Nazi’s journal, with detailed depictions of such acts. They’re just intensely romanticized accounts of child rape and murder; it’s something that actually blew me away. The writer/director is truly one sick fuck to be this in touch with the psychopathic core of a pedophilic murderer.

It’s an incredible movie about consequence and revenge that’s told in a manor that I think bewildered reviewers for years. It blurs the lines between right and wrong, willing to sacrifice lives in the process of condemning an extraordinary evil. The specific breed of revenge, as portrayed in this film, isn’t noble but rather an inevitable product of abuse.

If you think you can stomach it, I can’t recommend this enough.

9/10

    1. Yeah I can enjoy them if they serve a purpose, which this one did. However I do agree, while watching it I was just thinking how strange it was that this came from someones imagination.
