3.0 out of 5 stars Just smoke and mirrors! January 22, 2013
Format:DVD
This movie is long on conversation, acting and drama. To spice things up a bit, the viewer is lead to belive that there will be some violence, torture, gore and even nudity happening soon. If you are hoping to see any of those things in this movie, you will be disappointed. This is more of a slow paced psychological drama centered on the morality of making movies nowdays that are "slasher/torture/porn" type. It is a good movie with good coversations dealing with this subject, but has little action, yet alot of anticipation.

4.0 out of 5 stars CLIFF NOTES AREN'T BOOKS? March 29, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
This is NOT a slasher film, it is a psychological thriller/drama. Lance Ross (Michael A. Newcomer) is a shallow Hollywood horror film director/writer who loves his sister. He has made a film franchise known as "A Thousand Cuts" based on an ancient oriental torture technique. As life imitates art, so it was. Oklahoma rube Frank (Michael O'Keefe) had a daughter who was a victim of the technique. He blames Lance and decides to have his revenge.

What I liked about the film was the crisp dialouge during the party. The characters were colorful. Frank, who comes across as a rube, has done his homework as he plans ahead. I expected a twist at the end more complex than what I got, i.e. Frank really being an actor hired by Lance's sister (Olesya Rulin) as that is where it appeared this thing was going and wish they would re-shoot the ending to suit me...but that won't happen.

The film does not contain any real torture scenes. There are glimpses of a torture victim (Madi Goff) from time to time, but nothing for gore fans. This is not a plot/action driven film. Fans of this genre, might try "Axed."

Parental Guide: No f-bombs (that I recall). No sex or nudity.

2.0 out of 5 stars STATIC, TALKY & DERIVATIVE December 5, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
This psychological drama delivers a serious, sometimes repetitive conversation about the ripple effects of the extreme violence that passes for entertainment. Is there a moral debt for the creators of dehumanizing on-screen portrayals? And what happens when that debt comes due?

Playwright Charles Evered (with two other writers) has fashioned a sometimes relevant movie that asks: Is there such a thing as responsibility in art? Bigger questions swirl around the core drama that riffs on violence in art and entertainment.

Sadly, movie title, poster and home video box art are deceptive and imply the sub-genre of violence porn that the film actually attempts to rail against! This is a very static and talky film.

Is there actually a negative influence on a healthy person after experiencing violent art, movies or video games? Is it a healthy release or something else entirely?

Only for these unexpected issues -- and questions -- raised in this micro-budgeted film, do I give it two stars.

It's hard not to be reminded of the superior "Hard Candy" when watching this derivative film. And then there's the wasted talent -- like David Naughton as an extra!

[This movie would make an interesting one act, single set, stage version. Especially for a high school drama dept. It might be fun to change the sex of one -- or both -- of the leads.]

3.0 out of 5 stars Noonan is in the house (literally)! February 5, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Low budget thriller without a lot of craziness to make it implausible and surprisingly good production values considering. My interest was piqued by the title as I'm familiar with the figure of speech but the real draw was seeing Michael O'Keefe, AKA Danny Noonan from Caddyshack. Simple reason to have watched the whole movie but that's my story and I'm sticking with it. Payoff at the end was good enough to be worth it for me.
