Begotten (REVIEW)

For once, I'm at a loss of words. I'm no stranger to shocking horror films. I own a copy of "Cannibal Holocaust". I caught "Human Centipede: First Sequence" in theaters. I survived "Anti-Christ". But this film, "Begotten", makes those movies look like Pixar creations. Where "Cannibal Holocaust" occasionally throws a left hook at the viewer with graphic violence, “Begotten” delivers a non-stop barrage of uppercuts and pounding fists. Where “Human Centipede: First Sequence” cuts the shock with humor, “Begotten” has no chaser and offers no respite from the terrible images it contains.

Retro Trailer: "Begotten"

In the history of heady, mind-altering cinema, "Shadow of the Vampire" director E. Elias Merhige's unforgettable black-and-white freak-out "Begotten" ranks among the very best. The picture's so-called plot is more than a little bizarre, as it deals specifically with the God's self-inflicted disembowelment and the Son of Earth's journey through a twisted lanscape populated with twitchy cannibals.
