Storyline

This story centers around Charlotte, a struggling young actress who can't catch a break. In an effort to support herself and her hopeless mother, Charlotte holds a job as a cocktail waitress at a seedy, local strip club and hates every minute of it. During a cigarette break late one evening she witnesses an altercation between an overzealous bouncer and an unfortunate passerby, David. David makes movies and given Charlotte's career interests a friendship quickly develops. Soon enough, David mentions a project he has in the works that she would be perfect for and an excited Charlotte agrees to take part. She has no idea what she has signed up for. Written by Anonymous

9 September 2014 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Another perfect example that independent flicks aren't that bad at all. This is a pure horror with all elements in tact. It's beautifully shot and it do has an arty feeling sometimes but don't let that be in the way of seeing this beauty.

I was surprised by 2 things, the acting that is excellent coming from Kristi Ray (Charlotte) and David Long (as himself). The other thing is the gore added in some scene's. The effects for such kind of flick are amazing.

We follow Charlotte who is working at a strip club and hates every minute of it. By taking a break outsite she comes across David who just been smashed together. David introduces himself and Charlotte believes every minute what he says resolving in a friendship. But David has a dark side.

The flick starts off with excellent gore and from there we do get to know both main leads. Sometimes it do move a bit slow but the way it was edited and filmed kept me watching. The gore and horror comes in slowly, first you have the hammer smashing that moves into the harder stuff.

There's also a bit of nudity at the strip club and just watch one girl what she can do with her juggs. But the nudity isn't gratuitous, it do adds towards the depravity.

Charlotte seeing some future with David and David seeing Charlotte as the perfect item for his film you can see what is coming.

And did I mention the score that moves from weird sounds to the typical country style. Yes, it all fits in perfectly with the way of shooting.

Don't expect a slasher or a cruel horror, this is more about the desperate meeting the sicky, and a sicky it is.

Gore 2/5 Nudity 1,5/5 Effects 3/5 Story 3/5 Comedy 0/5
