NC-17 | | Horror, Mystery, Thriller
An aging porn star agrees to participate in an "art film" in order to make a clean break from the business, only to discover that he has been drafted into making a pedophilia and necrophilia themed snuff film.
The film was initially banned in Brazil. The first legal screening was scheduled for October 1, 2011, in a special Cine Sesi dawn screening in the city of Maceió, Alagoas, but the government forced the screening to be canceled the day before. The ban was overturned on July 3, 2012.
Baby, I'm gonna fuck you up.
When Jeca's mother crawls to the main character, on her lips is dried up blood, but shots before, there was no blood on her chin.
After some delay the film was eventually passed with an 18 certificate for UK DVD in October 2010 with 4 mins 12 secs of cuts. These included heavy edits to scenes featuring sexual violence and children (including the rape of a newborn baby and a young boy and all scenes which feature both a child and sexual images), the graphic rape and murder of Jeca's mother, and camcorder footage of Lejla being orally raped and killed. A projected uncut cinema showing at the Bournemouth film festival was cancelled when the distributors failed to submit the film for a cinema certificate in time (amidst controversy about the film from assorted councilors), and a theatrical certificate was finally granted by the BBFC in November. The same cuts were made as per the DVD submission.
