I'm not talented enough of a writer to fully explain that no matter what I say it won't be able to prepare you for this French movie. Three different "acts" are performed with each of them continuing to get stranger and stranger. The first deals with a drunk woman who goes into a bathroom where she begins to bleed from just about every spot on her body due to someone using a voodoo doll. The second story has a creature torturing a woman with needles and then moving to other objects. Finally, a sexy woman performs a sexual dance for a vampire.
SEXANDROIDE comes from director Michel Ricaud and it's without a doubt one of the strangest and most bizarre movies you're ever going to see. I can't possibly go into details about how crazy and nutty this movie gets because during all three stories you keep telling yourself that you're not going to see anything weirder and yet it happens. The first story is extremely strong because of the way it cuts from the woman bleeding to the man putting holes through the voodoo doll. The way this is handled is extremely effective and will have your stomach tied up in knots.
The second story is just as powerful and especially with the needle piercing, which goes through the woman's nipples but then they take it to another level with them going through her tongue and breasts. I'm not going to sit here and say that I know if it was real or if it was staged but it had me convinced that everything I was watching was real and this woman was being tortured. The third and final act is extremely sexy as the woman you're watching is quite beautiful but that bizarre feeling is still all over the place.
SEXANDROIDE is hard to watch at times but it's impossible to turn away from it. It's a gross art-house picture that is actually extremely well-made and it gets all the graphic parts through in such detail that you can't help but also be turned off. There's certainly not another movie out there like it, at least from what I've seen and perhaps that's a good thing?
