Описание: Кровавый банкет под музыку страха Руджеро Деодато - "Дом на краю парка". Один из шедевров так называемой "итальянской ветви" жанра хоррор впервые предстает в лицензионной версии. Если вы думали, что знаете все о фильмах ужасов, - вы ошибались! Культовое кино - в вашу коллекцию!
Сюжет этой картины завязывается весьма традиционно: молодая пара, авария в дороге, просьба о помощи... Но милые люди, столь вежливые и обходительные, оказываются сборищем маньяков, которые не остановятся ни перед чем, лишь бы потешить свои извращенные вкусы.
Рецензии: This is interesting sleaze in a lot of ways, mainly because it's one of those movies that looks like nothing more than cheap, hateful sex trash when there are underlying ideas (even though I will not dare call this an intellectual film by any means). One thing I would like to say is that it is true that some of the things going on here can be viewed as romantic if you view it in a very unconventional way. One of the "rape" scenes definitely seems more like a rough, consensual sex game rather than a brutal, totally forced rape. At the same time, a lot of this can really be viewed more as about a guy (David A. Hess as Alex) who has had some serious female trouble at one point and is so terrified of a woman he loves leaving him that he responds animalistically with hateful, misogynistic acts of rape and abuse so that he can get close to all the women he likes in the only way he knows could work for him, no matter how cruel and damaging it is to anyone else. His companion Ricky is obviously someone who is mentally slow and hated by society, finding friendship only in scum like Alex, who he looks up to like a big brother/mentor type. He is shown to not know any better for the most part, but we know there is good in him when he not only can't bring himself to violate a woman, but he is also the one who tries to stop the terror from continuing. This leads to a twist ending that I thought was actually surprisingly clever for this type of film. This one's not quite as good as "The Last House on the Left" if you're going to compare movies with mean David A. Hess characters, but, despite similarities, this film stands up fairly well on its own, in my opinion.
