Art-house horror
22 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

How to sum up the movie in a few words? Pornographic, slow, humorous (though not on purpose) acting and graphic. The movie depicts actual performances of bodily mutilation and sexual acts.

Sebastian the main character is a budding film maker who has suffered an abused childhood at the hands of his psychologist father. He now works for a shady news stand guy taking pics of gruesome events - children molested, bodily mutilation and car accidents.

The basis of the movie is that Sebastian meets a young (apparently 18 but clearly not) neighbour who becomes interested in his work. The movie is interspersed with Sebastion visiting violent peep shows and filming people.

I'm not sure whether Domiziano's acting in this movie is terrible or if he is playing the part of a damaged man too well. It was definitely an awkward performance. If anyone has seen any of his other movies I'd love to know.

Irene is probably the best of the actors in the movie and comes across pretty convincingly.

Many of the other main characters are over the top and spew forth their own profound worldly advice on the state of the world which comes across as silly.

Anyone looking for a slasher film will be sorely disappointed. This can only be described as an art house horror film. It is broken up into chapters, with slatherings of pornographic acts (masturbation/sex) and violence (piercings, razor cutting and drilling into body parts).

I would gather that some in our audience - we were honored to have the lead actor in attendance - left the film early out of a mixture of boredom and disgust.

I would have to say that this was a terrible film and that it did not meet my expectations of a "horror" film.
