Victor (James Porter) is socially awkward and seems to have a variety of mental issues. He lives in what seems like the basement of a halfway house with someone taking care of things, though I can’t be sure about that. More about that in a minute. Victor spends most of his time sitting around watching classic horror movies and talking to his pet mouse Frankenstein.
One night, Victor goes out and spots some people sitting around a big fire and takes a fancy to one of the girls. Later on, he follows her out and catches up with her when she stops her car at an intersection. He approaches the car, and when she asks him what’s up, he kills her and takes her back to his room, where he proceeds to draw incisions and stitches on her with a sharpie so she looks like a bride of Frankenstein type of a thing. Then he starts hallucinating her as a silent film figure, talking to him through title cards, etc…. The rest of the film is about the tumultuous relationship between the two. That’s pretty much it.
This movie is only 33 minutes, but it feels like 333 minutes. To say it’s an utter bore would be paying it a compliment. It was just absolutely horrible. We never find out who the lady living at the residence is because her voice is always obscured incomprehensibly when she talks to him. There are numerous scenes that are just pointless and feel like they run on forever. The story is completely lacking in anything of any real interest or substance, etc…. The only redeeming quality this film has is that the scenes where he’s interacting with the dead girl in that silent film sort of a way are actually well done, and James Porter’s acting is pretty decent as well. Those are about the only good things I can say about this film. It’s one of those movies that you watch and then at the end, you want your time back…with interest.
From an actual film making standpoint, the camera work was generally well done and there was some interesting use of lighting, and the editing on the "silent movie" looking parts of the film were well done.
I really don’t have anything more to say about this film. Don’t waste your time or your money on this one. I may have seen one or two that were worse…but not many.
