A violent thriller set in the outback of remote La Plata region, I'LL NEVER DIE ALONE (aka NO MORIRE SOLA) is a tough and pounding story of revenge for rape, mercilessly carried out by a group of women intent on pursuing their attackers to the bitter end Written by
All the puritan movie-critics that once labeled "I Spit on your Grave"
as the worst, sickest and most gratuitously exploitative horror movie
ever made (I'm looking at you, Mr. Roger Ebert) are warmly advised to
stay a million miles away from this Spanish/Argentinean co-production
called "I'll Never Die Alone" (lovely title, by the way). Every element
that made the aforementioned Rape & Revenge milestone a "class-sick"
are intensified several times here, making this one of the most
unpleasant, repellent and disturbing cinematic experiences I ever
witnessed. We're talking vastly extended and shockingly graphic rape
sequences, uncomfortably long moments of silence, aggregating acts of
retaliation, a pounding grunt soundtrack and an overall ambiance of
nausea. Unless I overlooked a title, this is the first genuine
throwback to the most infamous sub genre of horror of the 1970's. With
the emphasis nowadays lying on torture-porn flicks and tributes to
Grindhouse movies, the department of Rape & Revenge movies somewhat got
pushed into oblivion lately. These new torture flicks are quite sick
and mega-violent, yet none of them come even close to recreating the
gritty atmosphere and level of intensity of such flicks as "House on
the Edge of the Park", "Fight for your Life", the original "Last House
on the Left" and of course "I spit on your Grave". With "I'll Never Die
Alone"; director Adrian Garcia Bogliano impressively brings back the
sickest type of 70's exploitation cinema and I'm convinced many fans of
the era will welcome this film with wide-open arms. The plot is very
basic and straightforward as it should be. Four young girls on a
road-trip through the most rural countryside of Argentina witness the
murder of another girl by a trio of poachers. As they stop by the
nearest police station to get help, the trio's leader also turns out to
be a higher ranked authority figure. Immediately after leaving the
police station, the girls find themselves pursued by the poachers'
jeep. They are barbarically raped and mutilated before the strongest
once have a chance to fight back. The rape sequences are particularly
excruciating because A) they are shot integrally and B) because the
four lead girls appear to be incredibly young. They honestly don't look
a day older as 18, which makes the shock-impact all the more intense.
And either they are all four naturally gifted actresses or they were
genuinely terrified during the shooting, as their facial expressions
during the rapes and the rage in their eyes seem frighteningly
legitimate. The bloody vengeance parts are reasonably grueling as well,
including someone getting hammered to death and another bastard getting
strangled by barbwire. The unsteady cinematography and raw editing may
appear amateurish and low budget like, but it actually just epitomizes
the raunchy tone of the film. If you are sick and tired of the nowadays
exaggeratedly hyped torture flicks like "Hostel" and the numerous "Saw"
sequels, try and get your dirty little hands on this authentic
hardcore-to-the-bone exploitation effort.
