In Redwood County, the dancer Gina is attacked and her boyfriend is killed by a maniac in a motel. Gina is attended by Sergeant Burns and Lieutenant Krebs insists in giving a lift to her when she leaves the hospital. However, he kidnaps Gina and arrests her in a cell in the basement of his isolated house. The deranged policeman has a serious trauma from his childhood with dancers of night-clubs and establishes rules and punctuations for Gina while she is imprisoned. Meanwhile, Lieutenant Krebs is stalked by a local, Ruthie, who has a crush on him and wants to promote his amateurish puppet show with the character Deputy Rock, his alter-ego. Sgt. Burns is trying to find a clue where the missing Gina may be. Written by

Now, I have not seen Black Snake Moan, but I have seen enough trailers for the film to know that there isn't an ounce of difference in the stories. Instead of Samuel L. Jackson and Christina Ricci, we have Dennis Hopper and Asia Aregento (Land of the Dead).
Hopper is a cop who picks up stripper Argento after she is attacked and takes her home to his basement where he has a cell. Now, how many people have a cell in their basement? Hold up your hands. A sure sign that this guy is a nut job.
He is going to make her change her ways. Yeah, right.
When he is not preaching to her, he is playing some Depty Dawg dress-up for the kiddies. Helen Shaver is a producer that wants to take him national. OK, release the nut job on all of us.
As the movie progresses, our worst fears are realized and we find that he really is a nut job because of his mommy. You say that coming, right? Bottom line: If you are going to have a movie about a stripper that takes a shower and gets attacked, then we need to see something to keep us interested. There is nothing here folks!
