That's the whole point of the movie, so yeah. But that's also why it's a good and interesting movie. So I must wonder if you just completely missed the point, having given it a bad rating.

Idiot missed the point of the film, even though I hated the film myself.

All you who liked the film realize that the animals tortured and killed in the film were real? I find it profoundly disturbing that anyone could defend this crap.

In 1980 no one cared about animals. That's something of nowadays.

> Well if u want a pretty-polished good looking american "horror" movie, welcome to the shit-list, you have a lot to choose from. Luckily this ain't one of them, but a classic cult italian one. Raw, unpleasant and definitely unpolished (who cares?). Learn the lesson and take note.

Any serious message this film tries to get across is undermined by its sickening animal cruelty and OTT sexual violence. Ironically, it became a very example of what it was apparently trying to critique.
