Cinder (Megan Goddard) is only days away from her 21st birthday, the
day she will inherit her dad's vast fortune and will be able to throw her
evil stepmom Donna (Kieran Hunter) and her creepy twin daughters (Jena
Bright, Kylie Russel) out of the house.
Cinder is kind of going steady
with handicapped student Justin (Ryan Seymour), but secretly she longs for
her stepmom's gardener Cash (Ryan Seymour again), your typical tough guy
with a motorbike. Cinder has a kleptomanic streak to her, which causes her
to snatch a figurine of Voodoo deity Baron Samedi from Justin - and for
some reason, that little figurine seems to fulfill her dark wishes.
Eventually, Baron Samedi (Santiago Vasquez) appears to her in person even,
and he grants her her wish to be with Cash, but warns her he is no genie,
and every wish will come with a price ...
That night, Cash takes Cinder
to a wild party, drugs her, takes her to the woods, fucks her, strangles

the story of Cinderella
with elements of voodoo, black comedy as well as (in the finale) gore
cinema, and takes a David Lynch-like approach to things sounds promising
even in writing, and the film more than delivers, it's entertaining,
darkly funny, sexy and engaging to the end, and even though it can be
taken for granted everybody knows the story of Cinderella
as such, the film takes plenty of original turns, equips the story with
plenty of interesting twists to keep things interesting throughout.
