And only at the end of the movie I found out it was actually based on true events … while I had thought the script had come from some sick brain
Left unsatisfied, confused, whatever, I read some articles about the events it’s based on and then watched the Deep Cut series version:
It was basically an extended version of the movie, but at least it helped me get rid of the “What have I just watched?” feeling.
All the sick scenes of the movie are still in there, but spread more and with more explanation.
And there’s a cool OST too!
If you do I recommend the Deep Cut version.
There is sexual abuse, electrocution and manipulation and dead bodies are chopped, boiled, put through a blender and dropped somewhere in a river or so.
But as long as you don’t have a problem with watching that, it’s an interesting watch.
While searching articels about that movie I’ve found:
“The reference that the film is based on a true story, as the opening credits and a text panel towards the end claim, always have to be greeted with a healthy dose of skepticism at Sono” (the director). http://www.filmstarts.de/kritiken/277249/kritik.
But it sounds interesting. Will I have the nerve? I even exposed Flower of evil for now.
(Btw, I saw
The Naked Director
My husband won’t fit - not as funny as it sounds
Love and fortune
and was really very surprised.)
I was not sure about the amount of violence in Flower of Evil, but after I watched it, it wasn’t all that disturbing. Knife edges are blurred and the camera always cuts away before we can see the death. Disturbing stuff like fingernails removed from a corpse are also blurred. I’m usually sensitive to violence, and this is my opinion-- it wasn’t too much. There’s fistfighting, chloroforming, strangling and lots of knife violence but not overly grotesque. It’s a little scary becaus the psycho used to keep victims in cages, but overall bearable.
