Imagine a film with costume designs by Tim Burton, written by Meir Zarchi and directed by a young Clive Barker. If that sounds like your idea of a good movie, you need to find this twisted rape/revenge film ASAP.

Shot in black and white with only industrial noise to be heard (and no real way to identify the actors either by credit or by features since almost everyone wears a mask), this short movie opens with a woman walking alone along some train tracks and ends with her drilling some rapists to death (not to mention using a device straight from ÒSe7enÓ on some other unlucky soul). LetÕs hear it for transgressive art films that actually work.

Despite this being a good film, it is not an easy one to recommend. Too arty for the standard exploitation crowd, and too violent for the art snobs, it exists in a realm purely its own — to be enjoyed only by people who can handle such things and who are interested in experimental cinema. Some may find that it pushes their limits, while others may find it annoying. In the end, people will either like it a lot or utterly hate it, with no middle ground to be had. I found it to be surreal, engaging and disturbing, which is probably exactly what the creators wanted. Your mileage may vary, but this does deserve a place in the collection of anyone who has ever said to a friend, ÒI bet youÕve never seen a film like this before …Ó
