Storyline

Condemned to a miserable life of prostitution, addiction, and abuse, the young streetwalker, Bunny, spends her days fishing for customers in exchange for drugs and alcohol. In desperate need of help, while stuck in a perpetual loop of dependency, the drug-addled woman finds herself hopelessly trapped in a bleak world of self-degradation, unable to feed her immeasurable addictions. As a result, this vicious cycle will eventually lead Bunny to the brutal semi-truck driver, Hog, who kidnaps her in broad daylight, and then, chains her up in the back of his dark trailer. Now, hell-bent on breaking Bunny's will, the pitiless tormentor has all the time in the world to submit his helpless prey to unfathomable physical and mental tortures which aim to dehumanize her, and, ultimately, destroy her. Then, when the grisly "Bunny Games" are over, the body will be stripped of the soul. Has anyone ever escaped from the clutches of Hog? Written by Nick Riganas

When At First You Don't Succeed...
9 March 2011 | by wildsidecinemaSee all my reviews

Presented in beautiful B&W, Adam Rehmeier's The Bunny Game features breathtaking imagery, creative editing and outrageous performances by lead actors Getsic and Renfro as The Bunny and Hog. Very few low budget endeavors that cross my desk these days look this good or feature actors so thoroughly convincing. Though the film features very little dialog, it's not at all difficult to understand what's transpiring so long as you pay close attention.

I was greatly impressed with this film on a technical level and there's no doubt in my mind that Rehmeier will have a bright future in filmmaking. That said, I did have a few issues with the film that I would like to mention, the first being that this film, like Lucifer Valentine's gag-inducing Vomit Gore Trilogy, may have had a story behind it but what you actually see ends up feeling more like an experimental BDSM slave training video for Masters. I think that's why I had such a hard time losing myself within the film. To those unfamiliar with BDSM Master/Slave relationships, much of the "atrocities" you see playing out in The Bunny Game are pretty commonplace activities, including head-shaving and erotic asphyxiation.

If experimental cinema with all of its exaggerated noise, nauseating camera effects, avant garde lighting, rapid-fire edits, slow-motion sequences and monotonous scoring is your forte, I can't help but think this film was made for you because I just can't see the average horror or exploitation fan looking for a few chills deriving much replay value from it. In my opinion it's an impressive piece of Artsploitation certainly worth checking out, if you're into this kind of cinema, but be sure to do so before purchasing.
