Director Bo Arne Vibenius made the right choice when he decided to make his lead character a mute. Christina Lindberg has enough power in her beauty and glance to keep the viewer focused on the screen. This raped and abused woman has every right to torture and kill her victimizers. Instead of entering a state of comatose, this stunning one eye trains to kill and she kills well. I especially liked how scenes of violent revenge featured in Thriller - A Cruel Picture are in slow-motion. One has to savor One Eye's art of killing.
Apparently director Bo Arne Venius used a real cadaver for the scene in which Lindberg's charcter has her eye gouged out. This offensive scene only further confirms Thriller - A Cruel Picture as one of the best, if not the best, rape/revenge exploitation films. The reality is that most exploitation films are pure garbage with little to no redeeming quality. As a whole, Thriller - A Cruel Picture is a masterpiece of the unofficial genre. The film is one of the neglected (for obvious reasons) treasures of cinema history.
