review by
Mike Haberfelner

Jesse (Jesse Inocalla) is accused of killing his ex-girlfriend Juliette (Tristan Risk) - but without evidence he can only be held for 36 hours, after which he rents himself a stretch limo and drives around town picking up their mutual friends one by one, trying to get closer to the truth that will exonerate him. Unfortunately, the "truth" might not exactly what he likes, as it's a maze of drugs and sex, and his role in what happened might have been bigger than he might have liked ...


Ok, I'll freely admit it is rather impossible to make perfect (rational) sense of Valley of the Rats, as it's rather labyrinthine in its narration, tends to only hint at major plot elements, and at times intentionally loses itself in rather lyrical sequences. But that said, Valley of the Rats is anything but a bad movie, it's a rather triplike excursion into the erotic thriller genre, along the lines of 1970s Eurohorror (which quite often took a more erotic approach than contemporary American genre fare ever dared to) with an emphasis on giallo tropes (a subgenre that used to have strong erotic undercurrents), resulting in a delirious but fascinating, beautifully filmed and edited home, that even if you might not have gotten the actual story, will remain on your mind for quite some time ...
