Pure evil exists. It lives in Hanoi, in a small house that has been partly converted into an operating-theatre-cum-torture-chamber. Here, patients are cut up into bite-size pieces and posthumously raped by a cannibalistic doctor and his taciturn sidekick. His fat son, now also addicted to the taste of human flesh, befriends the children of a prostitute who fell victim to the deadly doctor. This amoral violence is inevitably passed on to the next generation. A cycle of cruelty is set in motion. 
Debut filmmaker Lê Binh Giang takes the body-horror genre to new heights. 'Bizarre' would be an understatement for this out-of-control orgy of revenge, featuring cryptic dialogue and plastic, almost detached depictions of deliberate torment. The finishing touch is the sound: the squashy sucking, splattering and dull thudding of abused flesh. Certainly not for the faint-hearted.
