SCARS is a psychological thriller, written and directed by Canadian filmmaker Sean K. Robb. In this stark and disturbing story, Scar - a raven-haired punk with blood under her fingernails - and Scarlett - a blond beauty with a penchant for extortion - discover that they enjoy killing men together. 'Killing dudes is easy,' says Scar, as the two women embark on a violent and ruthless killing spree, pursued by the mysterious Det. Mike. A story about what happens to human beings who allow themselves to be consumed by nihilism and misanthropy, SCARS is an exploration of morality and ethics in a post 9/11 world - a tense and terrifying film that's part character study, part slasher flick.Written by
Two women decide they have had enough of men so they start killing them. A kind of Thelma And Louise meets Natural Born Killers meets I Spit On Your Grave.
The one woman who goes by the name Scar (she doesn't divulge her real name) has most of the anger issues as we see her family upbringing wasn't the best. This is done to justify her need to plunge knives into peoples bellies. Her friend has a habit of dating married men and then extorting them for cash. Together they go clubbing at night taking with them a butcher knife that gets used when they lure men in the alley.
The film seems slow at times as you get several scenes of people watching TV for a minute or two which adds up. They don't really get into their backgrounds or what makes them tick. They show Scar's dad rolling a joint but don't touch on anything. Lots of stabbings. shootings and a beheading with a butcher knife. Overall not a bad flick.
