Storyline

After years of suppressing her desires, Stella finds she can no longer ignore her deep-rooted longings. Breaking out of her cage and starting a secret double-life, Stella transforms into a "unicorn," a nickname for single women who indulge in a hedonistic lifestyle, visiting sex clubs and erotic parties, and flourishing with all the new attention. Even as her husband uncovers his Stella's secret life, he can't do much more than give her the freedom that she obviously needs, in the hope it's all just a phase. Then one day she finds herself lying unconscious in a basement cell, with no idea how she arrived there. Days go by when an other woman is brought into her cell. Christine, a woman about the same age. In the following days they reveal their life stories to one other. Christine is convinced that the reason for their captivity lies in Stella's lifestyle.

somewhere between Giallo and soft core
29 February 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

I came across this DVD while visiting the Netherlands. The sleeve of the DVD looked promising and it was filed in the shop under 'horror'. But I can't really classify it under that label. There are of course some scary moments but there's more going on. I guess that the director Stephan Brenninkmeijer had some kind of Giallo in mind. This is more a whodunit then a horror.

Why I do refer to the giallo's is because in the torture room he used saturated green and purple lights. Reminded me of Suspiria. But the movie had on problem. There's a bit too much of talking going on especially when Stella (Chantal Demming) is visiting Mike (Victor Reinier). It's more about her past life then what is happening when she's caged.

I can't classify it with Amer (2009) or Les nuits rouges du bourreau de jade (2009), 2 Belgium Giallo's. Therefore it should have some more red stuff in it. But what this flick do offers in stead of 'nederhorror' is a lot of nudity. Sometimes it's close to explicit sex. Chantal Demming comes really close to soft core. She's almost nude all the times. In fact, all the girls in this soft core movie goes full frontal. There are a lot of close ups of pubic hair and shaving. One scene even got some actual sucking by Chantal.

The weirdest thing for me was that you see actors that I knew from Dutch series like Westenwind and Baantjer going in their nudies. Strange that it didn't had any subtitles, how can it be sold outside the Netherlands? I saw the uncut version but if it will be sold in the UK for example it will be heavily cut due the nudity scene's. Still, I kept watching to know who was behind the 'cage'.

Gore 0/5 Nudity 4/5 Effects 0/5 Story 3/5 Comedy 0/5
