Ginny (Lynn Lowry) is the nice elderly neighbourhood woman who's friendly to just about everyone, always welcomes fundraisers and other peddlers (heck, even Jehova's witnesses) into her house for tea and cookies, and really seems as if she couldn't hurt a fly. Of course, she mostly drugs, tortures, kills, cooks and eats her unannounced visitors, but technically, they are no flies, so point proven. And why does she kill her visitors, mostly young and attractive women? Because she once was a successful model whose body type eventually went out of style, which turned her career into a hell. Sure, her victims all turn up on missing persons lists eventually, but hey, who'd suspect that nice elderly lady?

Enter Debbie (Tiffany Shepis), a woman with some major psychological problems who has only just moved into the neighbourhood with her husband Sal (Carmine Capobianco) and who begins to suspect there's something wrong at Ginny's place from day one ... but who's going to believe an unstable woman like her? Even Sal doubts her judgment ...

Ginny sends some cookies over to Debbie as a welcome present, but Debbie won't touch anything Ginny has prepared, so Sal has them all - and it was a wise decision on Debbie's behalf, too, as the cookies were lined with drugs, and Sal, driving to work, breaks down over the steering wheel, crashes his car and dies.

This breaks down Debbie even more of course, but also makes her more determined to find out about her neighbour - and when she sees a cute Jehova's Witness (Kaylee Williams) disappear into her house and not come out again, she thinks her chance has come ...

Genre fave Suzi Lorraine (in a fat suit) is somewhat of the Greek Choir as an overweight shopping show host, Babette Bombshell is her number one model, and Michael Thurber plays Ginny's creepy neighbour.

 

Model Hunger, the directorial debut of indie horror icon Debbie Rochon, is pretty much made up of all the elements that make up a good indie horror movie: The plot is highly original, doesn't follow any formula, and does bring its message across in a unique (and bloody) way without forcing itself into a politically correct corset, the humour's of a very dark variety, the gore scenes are mean (if not overly graphic), and many a well-known face of the indie horror community show to what a high standard the acting in the genre has come in recent years, with Lynn Lowry and Tiffany Shepis being an especially strong duo of leads. And when it comes to direction, Rochon shows great talent, not losing the ball once, always being in the thick of it.

Totally recommended!
