The Movie: Okay, I have to say, this movie captures the feel of a pulp thriller perfectly. Everything feels seedy and yet hot. The story and the sex flow together very well, and in the end, I couldn't have been more impressed.
The sex in this movie starts very light, with a fantasy sequence from one of Serenity's books. It's a false safety net for what we can expect later on, and over all works. As the movie moves on though, the sex gets darker, and more extreme, since most of them come from Serenity's twisted mind. The second sex scene really sets things off, by having the man strangle the woman at the end. While not uber extreme, it still causes you to jump a little bit. Did we just see a woman have sex and then get murdered? Yes, we did, and that's just the start of it all. While sex and death only come together one more time, that mood stays with everything, and for some reason makes it all the hotter.
The story is as follows. Serenity plays an author who is sick and tired of writting romance novels. So, she decides that she needs to write a thriller, and thinks the best way to do that is to go interview a seriel killer. What no one else realizes though, is that Serenity is a bit off already, and these interviews are final thing to set her murderess side in to motion. Do not expect a super serious drama/thriller here. This is a pulp thriller all the way. It feels seedy, and dark, and silly all at the same time, and is a total pleasure to watch.
The murder aspects do make it a tougher title to call a couples movie, but I have to say, I do think girls will find some of the darker elements interesting, especially since it gives the female the power in those situations. Try it out, but don't start with this one.
Tech Stuff: The disc presentation is great, with a good, clear picture and strong sound. The movie is older, so the picture quality isn't great, but it's as clear is it can be, and for that I'm glad.
The disc doesn't have many extras, just the usual trailers, bios, ect. The commentary track is with Serenity and Jonathan Morgan, and fits very well. You can tell that both of them had a lot of fun making this movie.
Over All: I highly recommend this movie to people who are looking for something a tad bit darker, a little seedier, and a whole lot more memorable.
