Made specifically to appear to base sensibilities, Thriller is the definition of what exploitation cinema is all about. The film includes actual porn inserts, the cutting of a real corpse's eye, and actual needle use (though no real drugs.)

They Called Her One Eye (R-Rated version)
They Called Her One Eye is the international dubbed R-Rated version of Thriller-A Cruel Picture. I actually preferred this version of the film because it focuses more on the action and exploitativeness instead of being filled with hardcore inserts (which distract heavily). Is the movie more entertaining? Yes, if you want to see a straight sleazy/cheesy film. I recently got rid of my uncut version and bought the grindhouse one. I still think the director made the movie a bit too serious. The bad …

As far as transgression cinema of the 70's is concerned, Thriller: A Cruel Picture (aka They Call Her One Eye) is probably one of the more disturbing if not one of the most influential films of the decade.

About this movie

Wiki


Thriller – A Cruel Picture (Swedish: Thriller – en grym film, also known as They Call Her One Eye, Hooker's Revenge and Thriller) is a 1973 Swedish exploitation film in the "rape and revenge" genre written and directed by Bo Arne Vibenius. It tells the story of a mute young woman who is being forced into heroin addiction for which she has to work as a prostitute, and her revenge on the men responsible.

The film was marketed as the first film ever to be completely banned in Sweden, although the one that actually was first was Victor Sjöström's The Gardener from 1912. It has received a cult following and was one of the inspirations behind Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill, specifically the character of Elle Driver (Daryl Hannah).
