Trent (Jason Allen Wolfe) has been dead for a year now, but only now
does his brother Dave (D.J.Vinona) receive a video depicting the
circumstances of Trent's death: A drug addict, Trent hooked up with Tracey
(Amanda Booth), who supplied him with drugs, sex and a roof over his head
- but for a price: She also makes him her personal drugdealer and films
their sex for a porn website. Eventually, a woman falls into Tracey's web
as well, Beth (Eli De Geer), who soon enough shares Trent's fate. Since
they are already sexual partners for Tracey's website, Trent and Beth soon
fall in love, too, and eventually they decide to leave ... but that's
something that Tracey can't allow, so she kills them both.
something not quite right about the video though, since it was recorded by
Beth ... after her death. And then Dave's television starts to act up and
show images of Trent's death even after being plugged out. When Dave calls
his sister Carla (Rachel Lewis) for help, they come to the obvious
conclusion that Tracey's power over Trent and Beth must have consisted of
more than just drugs and sex - but then, Carla's girlfriend Zenna turns out to be
actually Tracey (and she's played by Amanda Booth as well), and it's not
long before she goes after Dave with a chainsaw ...
narrative level, China White Serpentine admittedly makes little (as
in next to no) sense - but perhaps it's not even supposed to: The whole
film seems to follow the logic of a nightmare rather than anything else
anyways, and directors Eric Stanze and Robin Garrels manage to maintain a
creepy-as-hell atmosphere throughout the movie to go well with the film's
twisted logic. A pretty cool film, actually.
