Julia X
29 May 2015 | by a_baronSee all my reviews

A young woman means an attractive, muscular guy in a chat room. What could go wrong? For whatever reason she has a bad feeling about her date, makes her excuses and leaves. Her intuition was right because he is a serial killer whose MO is to brand his victims with the letter X using a red hot iron. When she returns to her vehicle he is waiting inside for her, kidnaps her, takes her to his lair, brands her, then makes the mistake of not murdering her then and there. More than once.

Seizing her opportunity, she escapes from his clutches and against the odds overpowers him. At this point we are not far enough into the film for the cops to arrive, and they don't, rather her sister does; the two are more than sisters, they are a killer couple. This is where it gets silly. The implication is they are like this because they were sexually abused by their own father; they appear to hate men, or at least any man who gives them the eye, which is most red-blooded males over the age of about 14 because they are both strikingly attractive.

What happens next? Well, the younger sister lures the man across the road into the house on the pretext of fixing her bike; the serial killer has his feel nailed to the floor crucifixion fashion, and when he frees himself, you have to think this is some kind of bizarre satire, because he is as blithely nonchalant as when his victim escaped when in the real world he would have been in desperate need of medical treatment. A satire on what remains to be seen. Comedy? The problem with that is that for the first part of the film there are no laughs at all. Any points this one earns is for originality and mild special effects, but even originality can be over-rated.
