After getting banned in Spain, this one is generally considered the 'Holy Grail of Rape Movies,' virtually impossible to find, even though similar films from this same period [LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT and I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, etc] are readily available today. DAWN remains one of the most disturbing (in a remarkably crowded category) due to the sheer amount of rape and violence displayed on the screen. Please note: this is a very nihilistic and angry film.

Four young delinquents are depicted without a glimpse of humanity as they assault, rape and beat random victims, with no sense of remorse or empathy. As they continue to push each other further and further into a crazed mania, women are abused, whipped and degraded in every possible way. This was one of director Ignacio Iquino's first Category 'S' Films, after a long career in move-making that began in the mid-1930s. In the '60s and '70s, he specialized in Spaghetti Westerns, usually under the Steven McCoy alias. [Interestingly, writing credits for this film use that same pseudonym.] Mr Iquino died from a heart attack in April 1994, at age 83.
