incredibly effective (yet virtually unknown) 'home invasion' thriller
ran into severe distribution trouble due to the graphic intensity of the
subject matter. Director Grau refused to allow edits to his film, a decision
- while respected by genre fans - also caused insurmountable obstacles
for the movie. Few people have actually had the opportunity to see Mr
Grau's motion picture. Here is the fully uncut 101 min. version. It is
still very strong and shocking even by contemporary standards, some 30
years after the shoot.
Serna, an award-winning Spanish A-List actress, steps far out-of-her-comfort-zone
for this shocking portrayal. She plays a lawyer named Adela who defends
'criminal scum,' passionately trying to fight for their justice.
Everything backfires when a gang of young thugs choose Adela for their
next victim. They steal her car, find an address book, get keys to her
country villa and decide to rob the place. Unfortunately, Adela and her
family unexpectedly turn up at the remote house and thus begins a nightmare
that crescendos into one of the most shocking finales put on celluloid.
Grau's contributions to the Cult Cinema genre are numerous, but he is
best known for directing the groundbreaking zombie film LET
SLEEPING CORPSES LIE (Living Dead At Manchester Morgue) and LEGEND
OF BLOOD CASTLE.
