Description

Worthy of note: phallic/yonic imagery is used throughout the movie in ways which often evoke violent symbolism of rape and assault. The movie's screenwriter is quoted as having said “I’m going to attack the audience. I’m going to attack them sexually,” regarding the choices he made regarding this imagery during the film's creation. It has often been described as a “rape movie” which subverts the common horror trope of ‘vulnerable’ women being sexually assaulted and have the ‘ultra masculine’ marines be completely emasculated and having things that are not consensual and full of sexual imagery happen to them.
