Critic Reviews for On Tender Hooks

All Critics (2)

the film is so quick to get down to the nitty-gritty of the process that the spectacle of perforated and pulled flesh is fast normalised, losing its horror.

Certainly provides plenty of fascinating insight into the human suspension community, even if most viewers will probably still struggle to relate to shoving hooks through their body in the pursuit of enlightenment.
