Subconscious Cruelty (1999)
Movie Review by The Spastic Cannibal

Subconscious Cruelty (1999) "Subconscious Cruelty" is some of the most depraved shit I've ever seen! This movie was auteur, indie filmmaker Karim Hussain's first bold project - spanning over a period of about 7 grueling years - that launches you into a visceral and lasting collection of gruesome horrors...

It begins with a brief rundown on the different hemispheres of the human brain and the separate functions which are suppose to make up our thought process. From what I gather, this movie was attempting to conflict with these "ideals". A nude woman is then sliced open and a lingering shot of an eyeball is shown after it is inexplicably extracted from her abdomen. We then delve into a disturbing brother/sister relationship that is solely described through voice-over narration from the brother. His sexual attraction to his sis and fascination with the concept of pregnancy and birth leads him to commit a the truly heinous act of murdering her infant during birth. This scene is so... "extreme" and irresponsibly cruel that it needs to be seen to be believed. After this segment wraps up, we transition to another man whose dick is mutilated with hooks by some odd characters who proceed to stroke blood out of his pulverized member for an extended period of time. The movie pretty much concludes with a Christ-like character being devoured by some nude women who joyously piss in his wounds and masturbate with his entrails... Awesome.

There is, of course, no linear structure in which these stories are presented, but I wouldn't call it completely incoherent. Either way, a flick with such hypnotic insanity need not inhibit it's stride with pesky narrative. In the case of "Subconscious Cruelty", the interpretive on-screen images speak for themselves. It's definitely "arthouse" cinema in it's purest form and delivers on the powerfully grotesque imagery and over-the-top gore that will keep fans of the "harder" type of shit satisfied.

Not for casual film goers, but if you're into strange, Jorge Buttgereit styles of surreal "arthouse" stuff, than give "Subconscious Cruelty" a look. Highly, highly recommended!
