Audience Reviews for Born of Fire

Another great release from Mondo Macabro that I wouldn't have seen otherwise. What we have here is a British/Arabic horror/mysticism film mostly taking place in Turkey. There's a lot of meaning behind this little gem though it could be interpreted in many ways. Easily compared to El Topo and Holy Mountain (wrongly referred to as The Magic Mountain on the back of the DVD. Also, they misprint Hugh Grant as High Grant in the "About the Film" section. C'mon folks, buy Mondo Macabros awesome DVDs so they can at least afford a proof reader) in it's melding of genre cinema with mysticism. As with all Mondo Macabro DVDs, this is also to offbeat to miss if you're into strange cinema.
