Best” Worst Film Contender, 20 October 2007

Author: gary-444 from United Kingdom

It is very difficult to salvage any redeeming features from this film, other than its burgeoning status as a contender for the best worst mainstream film in recent years.

The plot really is as simple as a man obsessed with a woman amputates her limbs and keeps her in a box.

As for the tag lines, bizarre, yes, erotic no. Leading lady Sherilyn Fenn is sexually neutralised in her role, pretty much undermining the entire premise of the film. Director Jennifer Lynch, in trying to emulate the off beat vibe of her fathers work, falls flat on her face on this project with a resounding thump.

Kim Bassinger famously pulled out of this film at the last minute at considerable personal cost to her – she should reflect that it was worth every penny not be involved. This is the only time I have ever stayed with a film to the end purely because I wanted to verify its worst ever status unfolding before my eyes
