I made it about an hour, finally giving up after the scene featuring a gagged, bound, spread-eagled prostitute, an incredibly long hollow glass tube, a mouse and a drop of acid on the prostitute’s vagina to bloody her up a little, the better to attract the mouse.

This is a brutal, unrelenting, and frequently unpredictable piece of survival horror. Although we open with five typical youths on their way to another typical rave, the filmmakers pull the rug out from us right away: turns out this is not at all a group of friends. Instead it is a group of three predators and two prey. The travelers turn on one another in truly shocking fashion, which leads to some rather nasty repercussions -- and all of this happens well before the "real" horrors of the foreboding forest show themselves.
From the moment the cruelty begins, Morituris becomes awash in bleak, oppressive horror. Characters are brutally abused and left wandering naked into even worse fates; the music and the cinematography are consistently unnerving; there's an feverish and savage edge to the proceedings that most horror films wouldn't have the stones to explore. There's actually a lot to like about this nasty little horror flick, not the least of which is that it may mark a small return to form for the horror-lovin' nation of Italy.
Immerhin ist Sergio Stivaletti für die Effekte verantwortlich oder hat sie zumindest überwacht.
