    "I really like how the film treated nudity and bestiality, but still, if you are not into it I don't think it is for you. But if you can stomach it, I assure you, you will watch this show from the first second to the last!"

    "Never thought I would get scared of Frodo like that! His facial expression really removed Frodo from his face and he transformed into someone you know who would hurt you if you look at him directly in the eyes! This film brought erotic horror into another level!"

    "Can't get more erotic horror than necrophilia, and this film is full of it. If it is not your thing, I suggest you look at other horror films, but if it is, this one is golden for you!"

    "As expected from a master filmmaker! I thought it was too long for its own good, but a fantastic piece of storytelling nonetheless. It is an unusual story, and the actors played their part really well.The suicide stuff was somewhat off-putting, but it was so well done that you can at least understand why the women want to do it and how big it is to the story."

    "Clive Barker's famous film is more horror than erotic, maybe it is because of the MPAA rules, but I think more explicit content should have improved this film. Or maybe I am just less a fan of violence than sensual scenes."
