    i totally agree this film was disturbing. i kept thinking why does she not tell someone quick instead letting herself get raped again!!! i was not satified with the ending either it could have been better.

    this film shows that women should learn some sort of self defence. it does teach you that much.

    Response to this comment:

    First one to comment. Maybe no one watched it, or they're all too embarassed to admit they saw it. I had no idea what to expect before I saw this movie on DVD. In short, it was difficult for me to watch, and I turned it off about the first half hour into the movie. If you are a sadist, and enjoy watching a skinny, girl get the "sh*t" kicked out of her by bad men, then this is your movie. I did finish the movie, but I had to watch it in "doses" - a bit at a time. It took about 4 days for me to watch it. "Sick-o stuff". I'm just wondering what the filmmaker's objective was by making this film the way he did? Did he intend to shock, disgust, or make money by catering to sadists?
