Billy (Gabe Fazio) and Lisa (Augie Duke), who have been a couple for
about a year, are planning on a romantic getaway to Billy's hometown for
the weekend. Oddly enough, Lisa knows next to nothing about where and how
Billy has grown up, other than he lost his parents at a young age. Once
they're in town, actually more of a coastal two-horse village that mostly
survives on tourism these days, Billy starts to act all strange, too, as
if he was fearing something was following him. But then he makes a find
that really throws him off balance, an old VHS home movie that shows two
men following a couple to the hotel room he and Lisa are staying at and
raping and murdering its occupants. Billy is so shocked he can't bring
himself to tell Lisa about it, but he reports the thing to the police.
Only when he wants to show the tape to Detective Mueller (Federico
Castellucio), the tape is gone. Later, when the tape is found again, it
turns out to be a blank, and Detective Mueller goes so far as to question
Lisa about Billy's mental state. From a local though, Billy learns that
what he saw on the tape might be related to a murder of some 30 years back
- but when he wants to leave he finds his tires slashed. Of course, that
could be a coincidence, but he's sure he's being followed. And the more he
believes it, the more Lisa worries about his state of mind ...
very unusual piece of mystery/horror, as this isn't a movie that offers
easy (or at first glance even logical) answers but pretty much stays very
close to its protagonist Billy, so much so that it favours his subjective
perception over objective "reality" - which becomes especially
(and intentionally) confusing when his perception might be
"truer" than what everyone else sees. So in a way, this movie
resembles much more a David Lynch film (without aping Lynch's style) than
any traditional piece of horror. And thanks to a directorial effort that
puts an emphasis on atmosphere, and a solid cast, this turns out to be a
very enjoyable movie too (if your predilection's for the weird of course).
