A nonstop supernatural thriller that explores the dark side of underground filmmaking. Gina Sklar, the reigning queen of horror, portrayed by Tiffany Shepis, lures Jake Bubar (Tim Mandala) into the decadent world of illusions and myths. Robert Lonzo (J. Edmund Fond) is Gina's mentor and producer in the world of horror cinema. Someone has stolen the footage from his latest movie and Gina needs Jake's help to recover it. It's Lonzo's best movie ever and Gina's breakout performance. Gina believes that this movie could catapult her out of the "B" world of films and into mainstream cinema. Jake struggles with his own demons internally but in the end cannot resist her. He only sees her vulnerability and beauty and will do anything to help. Jake's beliefs are challenged when he discovers Gina's true nature and realizes that the "the heart becomes savage." Together they forge ahead and deal with the demons and beasts that try to stop them from their forbidden desire. Written by MBL

Going, going .. and gone!
26 February 2016 | by InDyingArmsSee all my reviews

We follow our main character, Jake. He comes across a horror film actress of which he admires, Gina. They progress, and soon fall into a relationship; he then has to find a missing film?

Something that has to be said about this film, right off the bat. The plot, and story progression is extremely jumbled, and misses the mark on explaining said story clear, and concisely. During the beginning of this film we had a pretty good introduction, and beginning act. The story began unique, taking an intriguing narrative take on. However, this film didn't take long before it met it's downfall; as said the entire plot's extremely difficult to follow, and doesn't explain clearly, offering some story / plot introductions, only to suddenly drop them, and forget about them. What once started off in a solid approach lead to a confusing, mixed, and unclear plot / story that didn't exactly even resolve anything. Another flaw of this film. This isn't truly a horror film. This is honestly a romantic drama in disguise of a horror movie gimmick, that being the "She wolf" story that they just kinda threw in there for what reason? Beyond me. The film, as emphasized before was decent, and interesting at first, but again, it slowly faded into an odd, uneventful turn toward drama, and romance! Let's put it this way, Jake and Gina had only been with each other about a week in the movie, and he's already saying he loves her. Simply moving, isn't it? Overall it's pointless, and disappointing too, as if they threw all the solid ideas away and stuck with low, rushed romance for no real reason; of which, also, resolves nothing for the film. Let's get to the acting. For a low budget film, there's your typical low budget acting in this film, however one thing. What actually jacks up this review score for me is how fun it seems. It's one of those films that's bad, and you know it, but the acting is just funny in a sense to where you're stuck watching it, and seeing what the actors will do next. I also was intrigued by the characters these actors were acting as. You have your typical scene, however. The clichéd innocent guy with an overly sexual friend, of which said innocent guy's thrown into a conveniently overly sexual environment; constant situations involving sex, or suggestive situations. The main characters giver were decent for what they stood for, low budget, yet clichéd runs that succeed, an element that lacks with these low- budget films. It's a 50/50 shot, however, as we're given some characters that are just pointless, and thrown in to kill runtime, characters of which the film could've survived without, characters that portray clichéd, suspicious - like attitudes in this film.

Here's my conclusion, so I don't make this review confusing, as this entire film is a bit of a challenge to even review. This isn't what it seems. If you're looking for an action packed, low-budget, and gory ride of wolf ladies killing people, you're in the wrong place. This film's not horror, it's just hidden behind a horror gimmick idea. This is truly a romantic - drama setting, involving one character narrating how he's gotten in a crazy adventure; an adventure that's really just him interviewing random people to help his "love" which really is just someone he met, kissed, and has had many sexual situations with. This film's your typical low-budget, clichéd filled film - pop up that has a story that resolves nothing, no real suspense, scares, or real build-up. The only thing that really saved this is the fact that the first-half was actually solid, and the typical, clichéd characters succeed in being bad, but in that rare, but good way. I'd honestly recommend looking elsewhere, unless you'd like to sit for about an hour, thirty minutes through all of this.
