Darcy (Melanie Denholme) is an actress who fancies herself a scream
queen for having starred in a few horror movies. But to really take her
career to the next level, she signs up with an eccentric director who
films her in quite a few horror scenarios that get increasingly intense,
especially since she's a method actress, and by the by she starts to
question the sanity of the man, who refuses to even talk on camera. Plus
she's not totally comfortable with his tendencies to get her our of her
clothes more and more - but she really needs that break, so she even lets
him rape her - twice. With the shoot progressing, a tension between the
director and his actress builds up, and not just because of the two rapes
but because he invades her privacy more and more, messes with her brain,
and uses the camera as his excuse to do however he pleases. Eventually,
the intensity of the situation gets too much for her though, and as she is
a method actress who completely immerses herself in her role, the outcome
is not pretty ...
Filmed entirely in a hotel room (apart from a
naked car drive and a chase through the woods), and focussed entirely on
its sole actress Melanie Denholme (who's in almost every shot of the
film), this film is first and foremost a showcase for Melanie who proves
she can indeed carry a movie, even one as episodic and not 100% stringent
as this one. Add to this a very elegant camerawork, some suitably weird
situations and just the right amount of nudity without overdoing it, and
you've got yourself a pretty cool and very unusual movie.
