Marley and Brad Hoffman are a couple of vile white trash degenerates who treat their mute mentally stunted cousin Jessicka like a pet: They make her wear a collar, force her to eat dog food, take her out for walks on a leash, and even occasionally lock her up in a dog cage. However, things go horribly awry when Jessicka contracts rabies after being bitten by a dog. Written by
I was looking forward to this movie. It sounds crazy, some hillbillies have got a mute sister Jessicka (of the title) that they treat like a dog. They cage her up they make her eat dog food and take her out for a walk on a lead. When they're not doing this the two brothers and sister (or cousins I wasn't quite sure) are usually enjoying some form of incest. The problem is the idea is crazy but the execution is so boring. Aside from some full frontal nudity you don't really see anything. This movie just wimps out at every turn. There is one scene where they take the mute outside to have a pee. In the extras on the disc you can tell she is actually urinating in the scene but you can't see it at all. None of the incest scenes show anything. When eventually the film turns nasty because Jessicka got bitten by a dog that had rabies, well I guess thats what happens because one of the hillbillies says they put the dog down because it was acting weird but again you don't see it.
In the last 10 to 20 minutes of the film Jessicka does get some revenge but the violence is pretty tame.
There are some attempts at humor throughout but it's just juvenile and embarrassing. I almost forgot the awesome scene where Jessicka's sister takes her to a party. First she dresses her up like a goth for some reason. I guess because it looks creepy when goths foam at the mouth because they've got rabies. This wicked party consists of some footage of some crap band who must be friends with someone involved in the movie just practicing in a garage, some party eh.
On the plus side the film does have quite a nice old school grainy look to it. But even that is spoilt by some really poor editing and sound. The odd choice of randomly inserting some old school drive in adds doesn't quite work either. Overall this is a very clunky film I could see what they were going for theme wise but they didn't quite make it. If you have watched this and like it check out Blood Junkie it's better and funny too.
