The story concerns a promiscuous woman who's captured and tortured by a serial killer. After surviving the ordeal, she has to figure out what happened because cops and even her friends think she fabricated the story.
Everything in this work seems to make the viewer believe he's watching an American indie,particularly,as an user has already pointed out,some kind of "eraserhead".But it was more than 20 years ago and it seems now obsolete. The action of the film,which lasts about 110 min all the same,never takes place outside,which gives the impression of watching bad filmed stage drama.We move from the hero's flat to a shrink's consulting room,via a nightclub(?) to wind up stranded in a bathroom! The screenwriters borrow here there and everywhere:outside "eraserhead",we recognize bits of "fight club" and many a serial killer story.The ending has the de rigueur coup de theatre which is so far-fetched it won't keep you awake the whole week.
