One thing that is immediately notable about Save Yourself is that the film has a very female-centric cast, with there only being about two major male roles in the film. While initially appearing helpful towards the girls, Chris Sauter quickly reveals himself as a deranged German scientist, whose work involves experimenting on young, beautiful women. As a result, these five young filmmakers have to band together and find a way to escape this madman.
Despite having a very strong female cast, Save Yourself is a film with a quite ridiculous premise, which is made even more absurd by the over-the-top German accents put on by Ry Barrett and Elma Begovic. Despite this absurdity, the film also borders a bit on torture porn, as these women are subjected to horrible experiments and/or brutal deaths. While ultimately Save Yourself is about these women standing up for themselves and fighting back, it only comes after a whole lot of torment and a pretty high body count.
