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?
