A dark, graphic, and dead serious tale of torture and murder.
A group of twisted photographers in LA lure, manipulate, rape and kill a series of up and coming models while photographing and recording the events on video for their own amusement. But when one survives and returns to give them a taste of their own medicine, it turns out they were not nearly as violent as she is pushed into being.
Gritty and real, this film has a pseudo-documentary style mixed with the stalk and slash feel of classic horror films.

The quality is very good, and it comes with a commentary. It's a DVD-R and plays fine.
The acting is quite good for a indie horror of this nature and it can be very emotional too. They were very good and it helped the seriousness and they performed the characters and events believably. However, it has a lot of violent sexual content which is not for everyone. Not over the top gory, but has a couple of very nasty kills and is very real and effective in tone. Not like most over the top indie horrors.
I liked it a lot and found it very powerful and gritty. But it is not by any means 'fun' and you have to like this kind of film to consider watching it.
As for the movie it is disturbing, graphic and raw, which isn't too surprising given the plot description. This movie in many ways (at least for me) had an "I Spit on Your Grave" vibe. Notwithstanding, I see a difference between ISOYG and this film. Where the former is about a rape and the revenge, the latter is an allegory or fable for what one will do for the price of fame. And that price could have some dire outcomes. Perhaps I am reading too much into it, but that is the way I viewed the movie.
As for the production of the movie, I felt it was very, very good. It is a low budget film and while many folks hear the term "low budget" they feel that equates to schlock or crap. In some cases that is true but not with "PhotoGraphic". However, if a person isn't familiar with lower budget film making and/or is expecting a mainstream film they might be disappointed. The fact that this is a lower budget film allows the creators to really push the envelope. I also found the acting to be good too, I have seen much, much worse. Given that some of the scenes were so extreme the performers worked well with what they were given. As for the actress that played Amanda, I found her mesmerizing and believable. She also reminded me of someone, I still can't figure out if it is another actress or somebody that I have known personally. And not for nothing all the other actresses in this film are very pretty.
This movie was directed by Timothy Whitfield who also made "Burlesque Massacre". Under the assumption one hasn't seen "Burlesque Massacre", I would strongly recommend it if exploitation horror is your cup of tea. Nevertheless, Whitfield and Timberwolf Entertainment bring the same integrity to "PhotoGraphic" that they did to "Burlesque Massacre".
In conclusion I really enjoyed this movie in spite that certain parts of this movie aren't easy to watch, regardless of some "over the top" moments. There will be some people will hate this movie for what it portrays and I for one can totally respect that. I for one found it different, engaging and like noted prior a "what is it really worth" type of fable. So if a person wants a very dark, malefic, captivating and unconventional film watch this movie.
