    Please, spare us your phony revulsion. What were you people expecting? Why did you venture to watch a film like this in the first place?!! For what this film is and in the context of Horror (not - citizen kane, Jay) it stands out and leaves a lasting impression. Way too many films don't.

    The best genre film in years! Truly a test of wills. The grim and horiffic nature of this film will haunt you. Without a doubt the most disturbing film since William Lustig's "Maniac"... except "Murder-Set-Pieces" goes even futhur with rape, torture and child murder. A must see.

    Thought it was an amazing cautionary tale for 21st century society. And as the saying goes, "if you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen."

    It's about time someone had the balls to step up and create a realistic horror film with no concerns for the negativity sure to follow from narrow minded do-gooders. Here's to you Nick on a job well done! This film shows the depravity that exists in the world that most choose to ignore and pretend doesn't exist. And Nick also blows right through the taboo of not harming It's about time someone had the balls to step up and create a realistic horror film with no concerns for the negativity sure to follow from narrow minded do-gooders. Here's to you Nick on a job well done! This film shows the depravity that exists in the world that most choose to ignore and pretend doesn't exist. And Nick also blows right through the taboo of not harming little children. Even little babies aren't protected in this one! This one will prove to be too much for the general public. Most people are weak minded and need others to help them make decisions and to explain why things are the way they are in the world. (Sounds like organized religion doesn't it?) But for the avid horror fan and those that recognize this as a very realistic masterpiece of cinema, the world of horror movies being exciting is back! The film quality is superb and the background music and soundtrack are dead on! I look very forward to any and all works that Nick associates himself with in the future. Without doubt this is the best and most realistic horror film ever produced! Expand

    This is an incredible horror film. The most disturbing, graphic portrayal of serial murder of all time. This makes "Henry:Portrait osf a Serial Killer look like "Shrek 2". An instant cult classic and in the top 5 best horror film ever made. A masterpiece.

    Not a date movie. Not a family movie. Not even a horror movie, really. This folks, is something else. An experience - not for the faint of heart. Looking forward to what's coming next from Fright Flix.

    "M-S-P" is simply the BEST slasher film ever made. It goes beyond "Maniac" and "Last House on the Left", and the directing, acting, F/X and cinematography are astonishing! The bad press from these critics is simply they cannot handle aan ultra-violent depiction of a sexual serial killer of women and little girls. I believe the film is dead-on accurate of what really happens on the streets "M-S-P" is simply the BEST slasher film ever made.

I believe the film is dead-on accurate of what really happens on the streets of America. People cannot handle the truth. Yes, the film is bloody and gory as hell, but isn't that what murder is?? It has a great down-beat ending and BLOWS AWAY any other horror film in decades. This makes "High Temsion" look like a joke. Expand

    Easily the most disturbing film I've ever seen...I LOVED IT. This movie should have gotten the accolades and positive notices that went to that piece of crap "Henry, Portrait of a Serial Killer". Now talk about a movie pieced together with no story, plot or narrative. The murder/torture scenes notwithstanding, It was a very realistic portrayal of an all too real world. Wake up folks!

The lead actor, Sven Garrett is amazingly intense and scarier than Kruger, Freddy, Myers, Chainsaw..and all those other characters (not to mention he's HOT). Expand

    It really doesn't deserve a 10 out of 10 but it only has a rating of 3.9? Jesus... It's a well shot film with lots of hot women being murdered and raped and also has great music in it. What more could you ask for?

  1. Be warned that the results are in aggressively awful taste from beginning to end.
  2. It is hard to know what exactly Mr. Palumbo is trying to say in his debased film.

    Pic's nastiness is so insistent, one-dimensional and excessive it risks self-parody.
