Documentary filmmaker Oliver (Dustin Diamond) gets stuck with a car
problem in Mansionville, and soon finds himself constricted to the gas
station by the local sheriff, who doesn't know what to do with both the
judge (Ken Del Vecchio) and the public defender (Jamie White) out of town
for the time being. While holed up there, Oliver finds out quite a few
things about the town, like the fact that there are 5 to 6 men
disappearing every year, and it always coincides with the time the Van
Houten sisters (Rachael Robbins, Suzi Lorraine, Melantha Blackthorne,
Jamie White, Seregon O'Dassey) have their annual holiday together - which
brings the town to a standstill, because all of the sisters hold really
important jobs to keep the town running - except for Candy (Suzi
Lorraine), who's a foot model.
Of course, Oliver is totally right, each
year, the Van Houten sisters have a month-long vacation at a secluded spot
with five or six men they have abducted, to brutally torture and kill them
and sacrifice their hearts to their respective mothers. This year their
victims include a pompuous judge (Ken Del Vecchio), a filmmaker who's just
too full of himself (Robert Bogue), a bully who overrates his sex appeal
(Scott Decker), a pitiful voyeur who just can't keep his eyes off sexy
women (Rich Lounello), and a young intern who just happens to say yes to
sex way too easily (Michael Metta). And one by one they are tortured, yet
also fucked, dominated and eventually killed by the sisters.
being restricted to the gas station, Oliver is making good progress to a)
guess what the sisters are actually doing in their holidays, and b) track
them down - but it stands to argue whether that was a good idea ...
fave Tony Todd plays "God" in the movie within the movie, and
his opening monologue is simply hilarious.
You might need a bit
of a stomach to enjoy Bleeding Hearts, as it does get very violent
at times ... but if you've got only the slightest sense of dark humour,
you'll also find sooo much to laugh about. Basically, the script might be
violent, but it's about thrice as witty, its story is well-structured
(even if it leaves some narrative strands open). And the appropriately
unexcited directorial effort only fits the story only too well. Now add to
that a really sexy quintet of sisters who are all obviously in on the joke
(plus most of them being rather big names in indie horror), plus a very
competent supporting cast ... and you probably can't help but laugh your
ass off. That said, it's not a comedy for everybody - but probably never
has violence and perversion looked so utterly funny.
