Victor (Elias Castillo) is a down-on-his-luck paranormal investigator: He got a divorce only recently and is already behind in alimony payments, he's seriously behind on the assignments for the magazine he's writing for and on the verge of being fired, but lacks inspiration to find a new story to write about, his darker past assignments (especially an interview with a vampire) still get to him, his job is ridiculed by pretty much everyone (apart from the readers of his magazine I suppose), and worst of all, his drinking habit has gotten out of control, which only makes things worse.

Then, like a knight in shining armour, his cop friend Kyle (Shane Dean) pops up and offers him a copy of an actual snuff video to base his next article on.

Too desperate to decline, Victor watches the video that shows a masked man brtuatlly rape and kill tied up Madison (Aneliese Roettger) - which is bad enough in itself, but the tape does something to Victor, it urges him to watch the whole ordeal over and over again, Madison soon seems to show up in his real life, too, and urge him to help her, like some kind of vengeful ghost. And even though his mind is clouded by cheap whiskey, something drives Victor to pick up investigations, and eventually he finds a lead leading to Madison's killer - but what he finds is anything but calming. And even when the case is closed and Victor should be celebrated a hero, his life only spirals deeper into hell ...

 

Above all else, The Virgin Murders is a very disturbing film, a trip into the mind of a man who can't distinguish reality from imagination anymore, a mind that's crowded by rape, murder and nocturnal creatures on the one side, fear and self doubt on the other. And that the whole thing doesn't just fall apart is thanks on one hand to Elias Castillo's central performance, that makes Victor not only a fallible but also pretty likeable character, on the other hand to the directorial effort of Tina Randolph McCulloch, who despite all the weird things going on chooses a subtle approach to her subject matter to not just freak the audience out but suck it into the story.

Pretty good, actually!
