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.
