Blood Sucking Freaks, Mark Of The Devil and Ilsa She Wolf Of The S.S. so disgustingly brutal with their scenes of torture that they couldn't be seen in most theaters and drive ins. Yet "Torture Porn" and movies like Hostel and Saw is something new? I don't think so... They are just a watered down less offensive example of something that was far more rebellious from our past.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Scarface also have the same false reputation but the difference is how realistic and disturbing those films were. Saw shows a bit of gore in the end when a suspected suicide victim crawls to his knees and peals away his face but everything else was left to the mind. We don't see limbs being sawed off and we don't even get to see the bad guys die.
The young director of this thing went on to do other shitty killer puppet movies one of which being Dead Silence and that thing was just awful. So if you like over hyped blockbusters with a bit of blood and very unrealistic murder sequences Saw is probably for you and if you want to dig further back into the past you could check out that other piece of crap Silence Of The Lambs. I'm going to grab my cane and pull Blood Sucking Freaks off the shelf for a truly disgusting time with trashy midgets and torture devices.
