Plot – Spoilers:
Trauma starts off with a shocking scene set in the era of Pinochet (late ’70s Chile). We then move to contemporary times, where one of the characters from this scene has now blossomed into a nasty being, whom the folk in his small Chilean town fear down to their balls. Into this town arrive four Santiago women, including a lesbian couple. The idea is to party at a family home, an idea that soon turns into a gate-crashed event.

Trauma is regarded by some as a sort of spiritual successor to A Serbian Film. And you can see why – the political overtones are there here too, though more obviously. There’s a terrible scene involving a baby (that’s kept more off-the-camera here). And lots of violence. But if you ask me (for whatever reason), Trauma is best watched on its own merit. Comparing it with the other masterpiece will only lead to disappointment.

    Bit daft in parts

    I’d say it had more In common with spit on your grave. . .
    Lead bad guy was menacing enough but the story was far too short.

    Still always good to watch south America movies.. and this was a dam sight more entertaining than say … Flesh to play …

    They had so many chances to kill those inbred idiots for example multiple guns trained on them etc. mildly infuriating everybody in this film fucking deserved to die. Still its effed up enough to be enjoyable.
