Here, it's treated leeringly, like supermodels that cry a little bit. And then instead of carrying through with satisfying vengeance, it spends its last tedious 25 minutes playing a game of story twists for the sake of twists, none of which make any sense or fucking matter to anything previous in the film. And if I hear one more music "score" comprised of nothing but royalty free bullshit, I'm going to hit someone. Although there is redundancy in the setup, which does not automatically cast the film to the dud pile, there is a fresh gust blowing through this effort.
In fact, when the film wraps up, all the gratuitous torture preceding the finale deems fit. Full review: girlswithguns. As the poster suggests, Serafini is going for the grindhouse aesthetic. I'm just not sure how well he nails this.
The nasty and repellent elements, he seems to have a good handle on, and Dallender impresses in her role. Yet the films in that field which have stood the test of time offer more than that, and it's there where the film seems to fall short most obviously, with this likely making little or no lasting impression. The eventual explanation raises more questions than it answers, and doesn't appear to make a great deal of logical sense.
If you like your meat raw and bloody, this one may be more to your taste than it was to mine.
If only they'd named all the characters after Disney princesses. The plot seemed interesting so I thought I would give this movie a watch. It was very disturbing — and not in a good way — with mediocre acting at best.
Frustrating and a waste of time. This review may contain spoilers.
IN THE EXECUTIONER’S HOUSE (nella casa del boia) Pages 1 - 19 - Text Version | FlipHTML5
A: Yes, it helps explain our near universal embrace of lethal injection as the preferred method of execution. By applying the latest scientific methods, proponents of capital punishment hope to convince the public that the death penalty is humane and thereby morally justifiable. The entire history of capital punishment reform shows that each new method of execution is introduced during a period when there is mounting opposition to the death penalty. Ironically, it is the proponents of capital punishment who are constantly looking for a better, more humane way to kill, while opponents want to retain the old brutal method hoping to keep the pressure on for the abolition of the death penalty.
The story of the electric chair also reveals the way in which public policy is often affected by behind the scenes maneuvering of political and economic interests. It also reveals how moral and ethical issue are often transformed into technological and legal issues. In America, the moral issues of "humaneness" was transformed into a technological problem of "quick and painless," and then into the legal question of "cruel and unusual.
A: The witnesses that watched McVeighs execution on television saw only the very last moments of his life when he was already strapped to the gurney and the needles had been inserted. They did not see him in his holding cell two days before; they did not see him saying goodbye to his father; walking to the chamber, etc.
All they saw was the end of the process.

His actual death. Since most of the pain is psychological, the waiting and getting ready, the actual killing and the method is much less important. It is perhaps most important to the witnesses who must watch a condemned prisoner die. Q: If the general public were able to witness executions, would our views on the legality [humanity?
A: I believe that if people saw the process of execution, how it has become an empty ritual carried out in private, what it does to the execution team, that most people would be turned against it. Even if one believes in the justice of the death penalty, it is hard to approve of its administration. Q: Why are you interested in issues of crime and punishment? A: Essentially I grew up in a neighborhood where more of us were going to jail than college.
I have always felt I understood criminals, that I have an intuitive sense of how they see the world. As a friend of mine once said: "We always knew Moran would grow up to be either a great criminal or a great criminologist. Join Reader Rewards and earn your way to a free book!
