"Holed up in their sprawling seaside mansion, a childless couple spice up their sex lives with lashings of homicide and anthropophagy, regularly feasting on the cooked flesh of their hapless servants, of which there's always a fresh supply from the area's poverty-stricken masses." (The Hollywood Reporter)

"Parente's script deliberately eschews subtlety, but his stylish direction - making particularly effective use of Fernando Catatau's sleazy, jazzy score - sugars the tartness of the medicine with a superficially sophisticated but essentially vulgar glaze. Carnal desires are all that matter here in an adults-only picture which delivers bursts of grand-guignol gore from the opening reel onward - often in tandem with sweaty, graphic sex." (The Hollywood Reporter)
