You’d think that being a horror film site, they would have seen it all, but even the Surgeons of Horror’s Howling Mad Moon Maguire came away from viewing Trauma a bit shaken. He writes, “This film sure ain’t for the faint-hearted and sets the tone straight away by ramming it straight down your throat in such a confronting way that its not surprising that it has been likened to A Serbian Film in its nature and depiction of humanity at its worst. There’s rape, torture, and incest all within the first scene that leaves you feeling sick to the stomach and grimacing at the prospect of where Chilean director Lucio A Rojas will take his audience next.” –Surgeons of Horror
