The first half hour was a bit slow but it gets darker and more involving after that point. It was a bit 'different' to brush over some of the logistical elements of murder. Bodies and forensics were simply left and never referred to again; no police, no news reports and no ensuing investigations to get in the way. Mostly the acting was fine though some actors in some set pieces showed the limitations of their acting range. It's not a classic but it's a reasonable effort made with obvious budgetry constraints. Does contain some violence which I think was pretty tame by horror standards and a bit of a contrived ending. Not much in the way of extras bar a short 'making of' which didn't reveal much.
Sweet young girl hen meets sassy killer and they feed off one another's problems which turns them into a couple of killing machines. A gripping tale that carries you along to the ultimate conclusion.
Normally films are expensively marketed and they end up disappointing. Here, it is exactly the opposite. The film has snuck onto the lovelfilm rental list as if it is some straight-to-video slasher horror offering, with some feminist pretensions as a USP. Think of it as arthouse instead.... and arthouse at its best. Final verdict: wow !!!!
On the rebound, she goes out with Lu and gets involved in a situation where "No" doesn't carry any meaning. With the aid of Lulu, they go on a killing spree, after which you wonder where this movie will go. Unlike so many films in this genre, it smartly brings it home.
The film brought to mind "Shame" and "Compliance" two recent films sold as being "disturbing and thought provoking" which are nothing more than perv films. This one is the opposite. It is sold as a perv film, but is really more thought provoking as it looks into psyche of sexes and the way they view each other and what women would do if they could get away with it.
This film ignores plot continuity points such as body disposal, clean up, or the police investigating the homicides. This is a theme driven film, not plot driven.
This is a soft 5 star rating. Most people won't like it. I enjoyed the small clever aspects of this film. The slow motion scene of the smoke leaving the gun, or the young girl riding by with vampire teeth as a way to say, "what roles are we subconsciously teaching our children." The policeman with the straw irritatingly sipping from a cup. Lu speaking at the Tarantino restaurant "explaining" the film theme. At the end there is a small insert of Lulu smoking a cigarette that brought the film home. Bravo Austin Chick for making a feminist slasher film into a subliminal art work. I appreciate what you did.

Quite a slowish start to the movie I found, the story starts getting more interesting half way through and then just paces out with not much suspense. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Amazon Customer
