Thriller - En Grym Film (Thriller - A Cruel Picture, also known as They Call Her One Eye, Hooker's Revenge, Thriller) is a Swedish movie from 1973 written and directed by Bo Arne Vibenius. The original length was 107 minutes. It is known to be the first film to be totally banned by the Swedish movie censorship board. It was cut down to 104 minutes and then 86 minutes, but still banned. It was finally released after being cut down to 82 minutes. In the USA it had also been cut to 82 minutes.

The movie is in the "rape and revenge" genre. It has received a cult following and was also one of the inspirations behind Kill Bill, specifically the character of Elle Driver.

Legacy

The film was marketed as the first film ever to be completely banned in Sweden, although the first one actually was Victor Sjöström's The Gardener from 1912. It has received a cult following and was one of the inspirations behind Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill, specifically for the character of Elle Driver (Daryl Hannah).
