i cant see films like this being commented on in such a way unless you watch them with a complete barrier up (which i see as no point in watching the film in the first place - unless for the 'been there done that' factor) or you are a raging nutjob rapist/murderer.

this is just my stance on the topic so enlighten me please.

edit: ive been up far too long and had just skimmed through your comments so i think i missed the point that you were making that you've simply seen worse. so excuse me. but if anybody did find this film bearable i am still intrigued as to how. a reviewer on the wiki page seemed to think so.
Personally (it may be the same for Rick but I can't answer for him) it was bearable because it was so ridiculous that it just became a bit of a joke after a while. I mean really, a guy being skullfucked to death? It's so stupid you have to laugh. That's why August Underground is so much worse, because it comes off as a genuine snuff film, and is hard to watch.

I watch them because I like to stretch myself, see what I can stomach, expand my boundaries, and all that goodness. I think there's some inherent factor that makes us watch sick stuff, the same thing that makes you slow down to look at a car crash on the motorway.
