At an absurdly self-indulgent student film festival, the directors of the (mostly terrible) short films start getting killed off one by one and a budding British documentary filmmaker decides to investigate.
In this modern update of the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale (actually more like Gretel and Gretel), 15-year old Crystal is a bulimic delinquent who makes her living by beating and robbing potential "tricks". While awaiting a 25-year jail term, Crystal hooks up with a psychotic young lesbian named Cyclona, doing time for slaughtering her entire family. After escaping, they head for Mexico, where Cyclona's saviour Sister Gomez lives in a confectionery full of children. Along the way, they leave a trail of crack rocks, binging and purging, and dead people. Written by

Out from under the watchful eye of Freeway producer Oliver Stone, Matthew Bright lets his id run wild and the results are fascinating. Less polished but far darker than the original, this film is hilarious, touching and deeply disturbing all at once. Natasha Lyonne gives her best performance ever and Vincent Gallo is wonderfully insane as the wicked witch. Bright weaves his fetishes into the plot more skillfully and enjoyably than John Waters ever did. I can't wait for his next one, reported to be a re-telling of "Three Little Pigs"!
