This is the story of Andy (Michael Coon), who just happens to kill
people. At first, during a hike in the country, he wasn't even aware of
it, he just suddenly found blood on his hands, which brought him back the
memories of a few slayings, but once he got the hang of this hobby of his,
he got very good at it.
This is also the story of Barney (Steve
Hudgins), who lusts after Andy's wife Ellie (Jessica Leonard), resulting
in him peeping through her bedroom window and following her around pretty
much everywhere. But he's much to afraid to just chat her up, so he
chooses a different approach.
And this is the story of Ellie, Andy's
wife, who's fed up with life spent between spousal abuse and lonely nights
on the couch with a bottle of wine - and who thus decides to accept the
invitation of a total stranger to come to a sex club ... where she
"emancipates" herself in an unusual way.
But basically this is
the story of an old house where some of this might (or might not) be
happening that has a dark past and maybe an even darker future ...
Lives in the Attic is basically a mindfuck of a movie - and I mean
this in the best possible way: While it starts out as a relatively routine
genre flick, the story is thrown completely off rails a few minutes in,
and every other few minutes, the film seems to change direction, or rather
the story seems to alter, in a way that's more David Lynch (without being
a copycat movie) than your usual genre fare, and once one seems to have
made sense of what's going on, one finds oneself in unfamiliar territory
again, to only in the end be allowed to tie up all threads to a reasonably
logical but deliciously weird whole. This is of course achieved by clever
storytelling that doesn't take itself very seriously though, a
light-footed directorial approach, and an ensemble cast that seems to
enjoy what they're doing and who are in on the joke.
Totally worth a
