Plot – Spoilers:
A couple of drunks mow down a woman in an accident. When the officer in charge arrives at the scene, he finds a camcorder in their car with a snuff film on it. The film details the torture of a transsexual hooker. Further investigation uncovers more tapes that expand on the killer Goyo’s specific tastes and his adolescence growing up in an abusive home.

Atroz harks back to August Underground with snuff tapes developing the plot. And while it threatens to go further and never quite does, it’s one of the more enjoyable effed up movies from recent years. The ending with the whole experiment thing is a downer though. Why can’t people just be fucked up?

A much better ‘story’ than I expected. Perhaps Admin disagrees, but I like this idea of killers being created (in this case intentionally) instead of just being fucked up.

We are all products of our environment most of us become what we are in response to the influences in our lives, we either emulate them or rebel against them. We become killers through experiences and the village that raises us.

With every psycho character there’s people on both sides. Sometimes the movie makes them fucked up naturally and that’s shallow or boring to some people. If they have a sad backstory then people complain that the killer isn’t just plain evil.

Me pareció muy fake…. ya estaba esperando algo así al final… no entiendo porqué tanta fama como “la película más pesada”. Una Película serbia (A Serbiam Film) es menos “gráfica”, pero más sustancial e impactante (en MI opinion). Greetings people…. ?

I just love the revenge in this movie, plot and overall idea that no matter who you are and what you do their is someone who loves you very much. So, you do not know who you are attacking and what family ties they may have. By the way, that fat fuck got exactly what he deserved he was only in it for the free sex and gore. Thanks Effedup.

Seems they took a perfectly good movie and ruined it with a lame-ass ending.

This was surprisingly good. Well-paced and convincing where it counts. The ending felt unnecessary, but I didn’t think it ruined the film. The unique way it explored its perverse set of themes was the main point of interest for me. I’ll be on the lookout for more from Lex Ortega.
