Item Description
THIS FEARLESSLY-DEMENTED, LOW BUDGET CANADIAN ODDITY
SLIPPED THROUGH THE CRACKS, & IT'S ABOUT TIME IT RECEIVED SOME
LONG-OVERDUE PRAISE. A SPECTACULARLY-UNPREDICTABLE MIX OF HORROR,
VIOLENCE, BLACK-COMEDY, & MIND-BLOWING TWISTS; IT'S THE 90'S
ANSWER TO "SPIDER BABY". SET ENTIRELY INSIDE A DEMENTED TORONTO
BASEMENT-APARTMENT, DURING ONE EXTREMELY FUCKED-UP NIGHT, THIS
PROVES THAT DIRECTOR STEVE DIMARCO (BEST KNOWN FOR BLAND TV WORK
LIKE "DUE SOUTH") IS ONE SICK PUPPY.
IT BEGINS LIKE A DERANGED CINEMAX-AFTER-DARK REJECT, AS AN
INSATIABLE SLUT NAMED JANE LURES MIDDLE-AGED BUSINESSMAN HAROLD TO
HER KINKY SEXPAD. BUT HE'S SOON TAKEN HOSTAGE WHEN TWO PSYCHOTIC
MORON-BROTHERS; DIM-WITTEED DONNER & HYPER-RELIGIOUS CLEM, SHOW
UP WITH A FRESHLY CHOPPED OFF HUMAN HEAD! THE DOOR IS LOCKED, THE
WINDOWS ARE BARRED AND IT'S TIME FOR A FAMILY FREAK OUT. THEY
THREATEN TO BURN POOR HAROLD WITH A BLOW TORCH, OR MAYBE JUST HACK
OFF HIS HEAD, BUT END UP LEAVING HIM BOUND & GAGGED AS THEY GO
ABOUT THEIR BUSINESS. YOU SEE, TONIGHT THEY'RE IN DEEP SHIT WITH A
LOCAL GANG FOR THEIR UNSCHEDULED BEHEADING, & HAVE UNTIL
MIDNIGHT TO PAY UP. HOW'D THEY GET SO DERANGED YOU ASK? WAIT UNTIL
YOU MEET MAMA!
THESE GUYS MIGHT BE VICIOUS, BUT THEY'RE ALSO NEARLY
RETARDED (AT LEAST CLEM HAS AN EXCUSE, DUE TO THE PLATE IN HIS
HEAD), WHICH LEADS TO SOME SPECTACULARLY ASININE MOMENTS, SUCH AS
WHEN THE TWO STARP ON ARMY HELMETS WITH 2-FOOT-LONG SPIKES ON THE
FRONT OF THEM AND RUN AT EACH OTHER PLAYING CHICKEN. MEANWHILE,
JANE IS CONTINUALLY POSING IN KINKY LINGERIE AND DOMINATRIX GARB,
AND WHILE SHE'S SUPPOSED TO BE DONNY'S GIRL, SHE'LL HUMP ANY PENIS
THAT COMES THROUGH THE DOOR. THE FINAL HALF-HOUR GOES TOTALLY NUTS,
WITH THE ENTRANCE OF A RENEGADE COP, SELF-CRUCIFIXTION, A POTENTIAL
SKINNING, A ONE-EYED LESBO BITCH, A VICIOUS GANG-LEADER WITH A RED
RUBBER JUMPSUIT AND VOICEBOX, AND (OF COURSE) A HANDY "SPIKE OF
LOVE".
REMINISCENT OF FUCKED-UP FAMILY CLASSICS LIKE "TEXAS
CHAINSAW MASSACRE", CROSSED WITH A MANIACAL THREE STOOGES, THIS
CLAUSTROPHOBIC TALE ONLY GETS DARKER AS IT PROGRESSES. BEST OF ALL,
IT'S CORPSE LADEN, APOTHEOSIS-ENDING LEFT ME SLACK-JAWED. THIS
MIGHT BE CRUDE AND OVERWROUGHT, BUT IT'S ALSO A ONE-OF-A-KIND
CHAMBER PIECE, FULL OF CRAZED INTENTIONS AND CHARACTERS. I ONLY
WISH ALL CANADIAN FILMS WERE THIS UNREPENTANTLY WARPED.
