Plot: A medical student (Katharine Isabelle – gorgeous, but also believable in the role) suffers a traumatic event, and her new love for maiming & body modification engulfs her. Written and directed by The Soska Sisters (who directed the upcoming See No Evil 2 starring Kane.)
Thoughts on the film:
• It’s impossible to ignore the wide range of medical inaccuracies and disregard for basic hygiene protocol! (Myself and V1 are doctors, and she’s supposed to be a fantastic would-be surgeon!). That aside, the story is quite engrossing even if her descent into sadist isn’t as fleshed out as I’d hoped.
• Her experiments and entry into the world of cosmetic body modification is compelling and fits really well with the horror genre.
• Her new-found friends, a sleazy but relatively well-meaning club owner, and especially a woman surgically altered to look like Betty Boo, are likeable and interesting.
• This film really punched above it’s weight. There’s some moments of humour and seriousness and unbelievable just-go-with-it moments all blend together well.
Overall: The film dragged a little before the closing sequences rolled, but it was an entertaining and well-made indy horror film. Well done to the Twisted Twins. Recommended.
