After the death of his father, a young man (Douglas Reese) returns home
to Kentucky City to stay with his mother for a while and comfort her. But
it seems mother doesn't need comfort half as much as he does, it gradually
becomes evident that mom never loved his father, just his dick ... but
that might not be the actual truth, because mother is out all of the time,
and the fact that there's no water in the pipes at her home suggests she
hasn't been there for a while now. The young man in the meantime breaks up
more and more, and even simple tasks like taking his laundry to the
laundromat become trips to hell for him, especially when one of these
expeditions takes him to an abandoned graveyard.
The ending of the film
has the young man reading a pulpy piece of erotic horror - that shows
creepy parallels to his own situation ...
A very weird,
experimental piece of psychological horror shot with no budget and quite
possibly no crew, that might not be too big on linear storytelling (quite
intentionally), but brings across its point via eccentric camerawork,
carefully chosen locations, the beautifully haunting music by Kathereine
Priddy, ... - in a word, atmosphere. But it also leaves enough space for
one's own interpretation - which is exactly what makes this movie work so
well and makes it so haunting: There are no definite answers in it, but
whichever way you try to figure out the story, the results are creepy.
