While many condemn it as misogynistic, others praise it for raising uncomfortable issues about sexual violence. While its reputation as a cult film has undoubtedly been cemented by its unique position in the 1970s/80s exploitation era and the 'video nasties' scandal, it has also become mythologized by its own official and unofficial franchises.
