Twenty years ago an artist made a deal with a mysterious woman. In return for a successful life he would give his unborn daughter to her. Now with his daughter Lucy an adult, the strange woman has come to collect.
There is almost no plot, and the video appears very cheap.
The low level of dialog renders the movie quite amateurish. The 'silk screened' video effect on the characters' bodies, or overall, was bizarre, but did not help much. The overly guttural growls and vampire slurping worsened the cheap effects.
If the same plot were 'fleshed out' with more drama, more dialog, and less flesh, I would probably appreciate it much more! The result is a a very dull film with almost no eroticism.
Please, Mr. Franco, put some meat in the plot!
