This film really caught me by surprise. I guess I was expecting a cheesy horror flick from the looks of the DVD packaging. It's actually a very artful and compelling at times film. I have to give credit Nick Vasallo's music composition. Superb! Misty Mundane (Lilith) and Erica Smith's (iesha) performances were better than I could have ever expected. The material they had to work with is extremely demanding, and they pulled it off flawlessly! I respect Tony Marsiglia's overall vision for this film! He obviously has a very creative mind! I do have to say; however, that the imagery can be disturbing at times. Also, I didn't care for the performance by the actress that played Lilith's mother in the film. The overall look of the film was gorgeous though. The cinematography was breathtaking. There were quite a few continuity blips though. But nothing to REALLY take away from the story. I don't know if our society is quite ready for a film like this. I'm sure many people would find it disturbing or flat out bad, but I thought it was amusing and beautifully done.
