October 12th, 2011 Nypd encountered a woman exiting a house near the Maspeth area of Queens in shock carrying a camcorder… when asked what happened she said “Its All on tape, the entire thing… He. Him. Everything…

Rachel (Svanes) and Lily (Topalian) are apparently freinds as Rachel buys a camera and Lily an outfit from a random rummage… Rachel begins taping herself after Lily leaves about Thoughts she apparently has and feelings even of possible suicide giving the impression she is unstable somewhat mentally…

We then see her freind Lilly attacked by an unknown assailent and proceed to see him watch the made statement of Rachel’s unsureness… next we watch as Rachel comes home and we see her get frustrated and think twice on pulling out a knife…

We then see an interaction between a dominatrix named Nataliaand a man named Lucas as he makes a proposition about letting him be in control by leading her to a basement…. tying her up. Spanking her… asserting he’s in control… dons a gas mask… and apparently chokes her slaps her awake… then ties her up in a differently area and chokes her again…

Shortly afterwards Rachel somehow finds where A dude named Gabriel lives as her freind Lily has disappeared… drugs him and ties him up…

This was actually shorter than I thought it would be but I slightly enjoyed this film… it’s like watching the beginning of what could go through the mind of a killer… Rachel though had reason to if anything too…

I know you don’t see much of Lily (Topalian who later played Sally in eight episodes on All My Children)? Mere suggestion is whats neeeded and I think Chad achieved this here but left us in Mystery of what happened as a possible scenario…

I can see how as slow as the film played out how the film might not be up everyone’s alley… honestly there wasn’t much violence either more of a psychological and like I said suggestive… state of mind…

For the horror enthusiast I think this was interesting it’s not gorey,  definitely not scarey more a sense that something’s not right with Rachel to begin with… kind of thing… I found it somewhat entertaining up to you horror fiends…

Starring Tiffany Anderjaska as Natalia / Dominatrix, Matt Hartley as Lucas / Gabriel, Brooke Svanes as Rachel, Mia Topalian as Lily.
