Condemned to a miserable life of prostitution, addiction and abuse, young streetwalker, Bunny, spends her days fishing for customers in exchange for drugs and alcohol. Inevitably, Bunny in desperate need of feeding her immeasurable addictions, she finds herself hopelessly trapped in a bleak world of self-degradation, while at the same time, she is stuck in a loop of dependency. This vicious cycle will eventually lead her to Hog, a brutal semi-truck driver, who will kidnap Bunny, and then, chain her up in the back of his truck. From this point on, Hog will submit his helpless subject to unfathomable physical and mental tortures with the intention to break Bunny's will, dehumanize her, and finally, destroy her. In the end, when the "Bunny Games" are over, the body will be stripped of the soul.Written by
Seriously?? I am getting tired of movies that just go for the shock value. If you have seen one torture-porn movie you have seen all and if this label applies to any movie then to "Bunny Game". The whole "Human Centipede" thing was already hard to grasp. At least it was kind of funny and in the 2nd part had some artsy shots and a disturbing villain.
"Bunny Game" has about 1/10th the plot of HC, also goes for an artsy black and white look but just comes across like the art school project of a disturbed S+M Freak. The plot goes like this: Street Hoker down on luck and high on coke gets abducted by a truck driver and then tortured and degraded for days in the desert until she breaks down.
Thats it!! The whole editing reminds a lot of Michael Hanekes Movies with endless still scenes of nothing happening and hinting to a deeper meaning that simply doesn't exist here. Its broken up by fades to black and some hectic edited collages of impressions to which some of the ugliest Black Metal Punk imaginable is played.
The whole "hooker on a descent to hell" thing reminds a lot of the equally art school style movie "Slaughtered Vomit Dolls" but even that movie had more plot and some creative gore to it. "Bunny Games" basically just shocks you with hardcore S+M play and rape and where clearly the "Slaughtered Vomit Dolls" Director had a sick fetish for vomiting this one puts his S+M fetish on film in the least entertaining way imaginable. Even the below average playing time seems like an eternity. If you are turned on by branding, shaving, choking and asphyxiation have a go. If you are looking for a decent horror movie or the next "Martyrs" you are way into the wrong alley here.
The whole movie is pretty much trash disguised as art for those who still think that making a movie in black/white is some kind of higher art form. To end on a positive note... the acting of both leads was pretty good although I guess they were doing what they do off-screen anyway.If the branding and blowjob scenes are real the actors sure are just as messed up as the roles they are playing.
Oh, and by the way... if you wonder what the "bunny game" is... its walking through the desert with pig and bunny masks and screaming like lunatics. So have a go next time you are in a desert.
