3.5 of 5

“..it's so well-crafted and loyal to its own inert insanity that you can't look away. Like The Terminator on a morphine drip, it's a rich throwback to a time when gratuitous nudity was the only kind of nudity..”
by David Ehrlich [Boxoffice Magazine]
“..it's mostly just a mess of mind-control, mad scientists, strange conspiracies, bone-crunching gore..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
Review rate : C+

“..is so gruelingly violent you half wonder if director John Hyams' goal is to make the audience get up and leave the theater rather than be party to the brutality..”
by Clark Collis [Entertainment Weekly]
Review rate : C

“..a B-movie that's often bloody, sometimes bizarre, but rarely boring..”
by William Goss [Film.com]

SUPREMACY :

BACKSTREET BOYS: SHOW 'EM WHAT YOU'RE MADE OF :

BEAUTIFUL & TWISTED :

“..a lurid yet compelling docudrama..”
by Hal Boedeker [Orlando Sentinel]
