Storyline

Classmates Steve and George are part of a frightening food-chain. For Steve, high school is a game. Seducing his classmates gives him his sense of purpose and fuels his art and poetry. When Steve sets his sights on the school star athlete, he starts a cat and mouse chase which could ruin him and his idol. George, the school recluse, copes with the stress of his mother's cancer and strained relationship with his father by cutting class and using drugs. Hooking up with a stranger in an effort to lose himself, George finds himself in a life or death situation. At odds with each other, George and Steve have more in common than they realize. As their paths spiral downward, they could save each other - or continue on their way to self-destruction. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

George: Nice place.
Tom: A friend of mine did those paintings. He believes that corpses dream. Imagine that each work is the dream of a murdered child.
George: [nervously laughs] I'm kind of stone.
Tom: Poor kid. School hasn't done you much good, has it?
George: Nope.
Tom: But you don't need to know anything, do you? Your beauty is much more profound.
George: Um... that's kind of a weird thing to say.

This movie was so gruesome several people actually fainted at the screening
17 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just "witnessed" this atrocity at the Los Angeles Outfest film festival. This movie was so gruesome several people actually fainted at the screening. Literally the worst movie I have ever seen. I left the theater when I realized what direction the story was heading. It was violent and degrading but nothing (literally no warning) prepared me for the horror that was depicted in this movie. When I returned to see if the movie was over, two people had fainted and were lying on the floor by the entrance to the theater. Paramedics were called. This is no joke– absolutely not an exaggeration. I have no idea why anyone would make such a movie and I cannot begin to communicate how horrific it was to watch. To call it disturbing is an incredible understatement. People were walking out left and right. Many audience members were irate and complained to the Outfest staff that this movie should have had an explicit warning regarding the violent sex it contains. In fairness to the volunteer staff of Outfest they were all very apologetic and extremely helpful to the people that had fainted. But I can't imagine who at Outfest screened this and decided to include this in the program. They obviously have questionable judgement and will be hearing from me directly.
