Model Tanja (Silke Gronewold) thinks she's just having a nice interview
with Margarethe (Mareike Jaeger) for some magazine or other - when
Margarethe starts asking more and more personal questions and insisting on
answers, then gets rude for no apparent reason, and ultimately she treats
her to a few electric shocks to submit her to her will and ties her up.
why does she do all that?
Because Tanja is in a relationship with
TV-soap-star Marco (Vonny Kesisoglu), a man Margarethe is hopelessly in
love with - but she figures if she could get rid of Tanja ...
not one to go down without a fight though, and she grabs opportunity after
opportunity to fight and defeat Margarethe or at least make an escape -
but without the slightest success, in the end, Margarethe kills her and
cuts her up - not without almost losing her mind over it though -, then
tosses Tanja's bodyparts into various garbage bins where they are never to
be found again ...
Two years later: Margarethe has made it, she and
Marco are lovers, mainly because she was there for him when Tanja
disappeared, and she won't let anybody come between them. Then one day,
Marco brings along his colleague Barbara (Sandra Lüdke) and asks
Margarethe to do some headshots of her. The minute Marco is out though,
Margarethe attacks Barbara, considering her possible competition for
Marco's affections, and in no time she ahs tied her up and prepares to
kill her, just like Tanja. but just like Tanja, Barbara puts up a fight,
but she is more successful and ultimately kills Margarethe. But she
doesn't let Margarethe die without telling her two things: a) She -
Barbara - has been married for three weeks now and isn't in the least
interested in Marco - or any man besides her husband, and b) when
Margarethe suspected Marco to be with Barbara, he was actually out to buy
an engagement ring for Margarethe, the love of his life ...
the most part, this nice little featurette is a more or less typical piece
of survival horror, but not of the torture porn but the (less common)
psychological variety, with a few incredibly tense sequences, especially
when Mareike Jaeger forces herself to kill and saw up tied up Silke
Gronewold, lying on the floor screaming (the actual dismemberment isn't
even shown by the way). What really sets this one apart from your typical
survival horror flick though is not so much the plot as such but the twist
ending, which puts such a nice spin on everything that happened before.
Fun ... in an unfunny way.
