Jill's an artist. Ian's a filmmaker. And their love life is off the chain. There's no experience too wild, no dare too dangerous -- not even when Jill lets Ian strap her to a gurney in the abandoned hospital they're scoping out for their next art show. But he shouldn't have left her alone. Not even as a joke. Now, Jill's hookup with horror has awakened something in that place. Something with a lust for more than flesh. Written by
While SX_Tape is not one of the best written films directed by Bernard Rose, it is nonetheless wonderfully executed. As far as found-footage horror films go, this is the best and most terrifying one I've seen. I can only assume that the low ratings received for a film this well done and frightening has more than a little to do with the behavior of the films protagonists, which many critics found "hateful" and "annoying." One such user review is even a word-for-word copy of a review published in 1INFLUX Magazine. I'm guessing that the characters got so far under the critic's skin, he couldn't help but to discredit this film anyway he possibly could. But truly bad or mediocre films are not so provocative. The lead characters in SX_TAPE are in fact self-absorbed, careless, insensitively voyeuristic, sarcastic, and self-destructive; but so are a great deal of today's youth. While depicting a boyfriend choosing to film his girlfriend bleeding rather than turning off the camera and helping her is unpleasant, it is nevertheless an honest reflection of a society in which there have been so many instances of people using their cell phones to record videos of others in trouble instead of calling for help. Once again, Bernard Rose has held a mirror up to our faces, and many of the critics don't like what they see. And whereas critical reflections of society were once praised, in today's mob-ruled media, they are vehemently despised.
