    Whereas Laugier’s creation forces the viewer to endure and consider every punch, kick, slap, and slice inflicted upon the female protagonists, the Goetz version prefers to shy away from or downplay the brutality, which results in the rare case of a film suffering from gore deficiency.
    • 65 Metascore

    Unlike Minervini’s previous outing, which gently unfolded through quiet, unstructured moments, the film feels far more scripted and staged, and, in effect, more shocking and exploitative.

    For all its overindulgence in depravity, Belladonna stands as both an important forebear to a now-beloved genre and a confused, albeit earnest tribute to those who dare defy authority in order to elevate themselves.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Amanda Waltz
    The ineffective quality of the music composition rubs off onto the script, a dragging narrative occasionally punctuated with workable humor.

    While each entry satisfies in its own unique way, the anthology as a whole makes for an impressive examination of distaff fears and underestimated ferocity.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 33 Amanda Waltz
    Tired jokes and uninspired gore abound in what amounts to an unbearable experience, and that’s before the climactic bloodbath has a chance to disappoint with its sub-amateur special effects.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 58 Amanda Waltz
    Its strict adherence to the disaster formula renders the experience far too generic and risk-averse to make it memorable, and the predictability will surely leave pulses at rest as opposed to pounding.

    While Private Property, with its tawdry edges and jarring, out-of-synch ADR, lacks the studio polish of its influences, it puts a wonderfully dirty spin on their voyeuristic style.
