A hypnotic Hitchcock-Lynchian catharsis fueled by cult legend David 'Last House' Hess
22 January 2002 | by (los angeles, ca) – See all my reviews

Okay, first I hated it, then I loved it - and it was only later when I realized why, the second time I saw it - its because the main character is so unlikable, that you thoroughly despise him... and it becomes cathartic fun! The movie is kind of like a shot-on-video Hitchcock and Lynch under severe hypnosis, which, although confusing at times, wraps itself at the end in a noir sort of way, towards self-destructive destiny - does that make sense? It reminded me of the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari in a way with a underlying theme of seething revenge and spite. Anyway, David Hess (you know - 'Krug' from Craven's cult hit "Last House on the Left") is one of the main characters (and one of the main reasons I bought it) and he really kicks ass performance wise -almost carrying the unique and quirky independent film. Hope to see more from Grefe (I'm wondering if he is related to 70's exploitation filmmaker, William "Stanley" Grefe...).
