The Review

Here we see the lives of a group of struggling musicians. Their lives revolve around booking gigs and doing whatever is necessary to get to them. Only it’s not as simple as it seems. The next gig that they book comes with strings attached. Upon arrival they begin to realize what these strings consist of. As they perform, everything seems to be going fine, it’s only upon wrapping up their set do they see what is really going on. When one of them ends up seeing something that they weren’t supposed to see, their lives will never be the same. It then becomes a matter of survival, they’ll do whatever it takes to keep breathing. Only it’s never quite as simple as that. This film is supposed to be a story of survival in the face of adversity… The final product isn’t quite what it seems. A grotesque and bloody tale that mixes in screamo type music with a pseudo snuff film would be a more accurate description. The violence is overly graphic in the way it’s done, in doing so… Is it unique genius or just plain old bad taste. That would be for you decide if you can stomach this (or stay awake for that matter). This promises much more than it delivers, considering all that it delivers is a bloody mess.
