Wedding photographer Max Parry is a serial murderer who lures his victims to their horrific deaths via the rental of a horror film in Julian Richards’ grisly indie, which explores, blurs and bloodies the line separating truth from fiction.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
Usually horror movies are not (too) scary. Part of them seem (strangely) to be meant to make viewers have fun. I've allways found bizarre that images of murder, decapitation, torture, extreme humilliation (and much more) could be entertaining. And there is an aesthetics of violence. Some films question this. Like Haneke's Funny Games. And then this one. Won't tell you how. Death is not pretty, or fun. Killers kill.
Another charismatic serial murderer. The "you watched the tape to the end, now I have to kill you" gimmick kinda falls flat in the digital era... You have a point Mr. Psycho Killer, there is definitely something out of kilter with people (me included) who actively seek out violent and disturbing films...maybe we can have a nice chat one of these days?
