| Sleazy sex on a low budget
Forced Entry has quite a reputation for being an extremely nasty shocker, and indeed; the reputation isn't unfounded as Shaun Costello's film doesn't hold back and the rape scenes are as gritty as the film's production values. The film makes rape its primary topic, and does this through the story of a disgruntled Vietnam veteran who makes it his business to slice and dice his way through various women in the city. The tagline proclaims 'He was taught to kill. Rape was his own idea!', which gives you an idea of the sort of things this film is preaching. There's a message about the horrors of war buried deep under the rape and torture sequences, and this comes to light by way of director Shaun Costello cutting the rape scenes with various images from the Vietnam conflict. We never really get to know exactly why the killer (hell, we don't even know his name!) has decided to take his anger out on the female population, but the way that the female cast is presented doesn't leave much to the imagination, and it's not hard to see why, as the tagline says, he got the idea to start raping them...

Forced Entry was shot on an extremely low budget, and indeed the picture quality isn't exactly good. However, like so many of these films; this really does do the overall piece a big favour as the sleazy atmosphere is made all the more gritty thanks the to dirty cinematography. The lead role is taken by prolific porn star Harry Reems, who went on to make The Devil in Miss Jones and the sleazy Giallo 'So Sweet, So Dead' not long after this film. Reems' performance isn't exactly stunning, but he certainly gives his 'character' believability and a good atmosphere as he stalks, rapes and humiliates his victims. As you would expect, there is a lot of sex in this movie and it's all very down and dirty, but cold thanks to the way that it's filmed. I suppose it's to the director's credit that the sex scenes ardent erotic considering the context and this also serves in making the film all the more shocking as it merely shows the sex without much reasoning behind it. Overall, Forced Entry certainly wont be to everyone's tastes; but if's dirty sex films you're after, this is a must see.
