William Allen Grone (Mike Marsh) is an extremely methodical man, which makes him the perfect employee. He is also extremely intelligent but has shortcomings when it comes to sex. Above all this, William Allen Grone sees himself as a true artiste ...

Roy (Ryan Hutman) is intellectually challenged. He lives in a trailer on a scrap yard, is permanently horny, and experiences the occasional outburst of violence.

William and Roy are best friends! Why?

Because they share a hobby, making snuff films - meaning they kill people and film themselves doing so. For Roy, this merely serves the satisfaction of his sexual and violent drives, but for William it is something more, for him, violence has become an artform, and the logistics invovled in kidnapping his victims, keeping them alive for days on end, and eventually driving them to the right degree of desparation for his film is nothing short of an intellectual challenge he enjoys.

Now William and Roy have kidnapped two girls (Melinda Lorenz, Holi Tavernier) for a film that's bound to be William's masterpiece, the slow torture and death of two human beings. But to get the girls into the right mood, they have to be kept chained up for a week on Roy's scrapyard ... but while William is away working, Roy rapes and kills one of the girls, and when William returns to find he has lost power over Roy, whom he always treated as his sidekick or his dog, he shoots him in cold blood.

The other girl manages to escape though after injuring William, but around Roy's scrapyard there's nothing but miles and miles of nothing, so it's easy for William to track her down, drag her back to his "studio", and shoot her in cold blood in front of his camera - not the film he has envisioned, true, but it had to make do ...


An extremely disturbing film, not so much because of its actual gore-score (which is not half as high as it could have been), but because of its very cold-hearted approach to its subject matter, mirrored in the attitude of its protagonist William Allen Grone, through whose eyes this story is told. Now don't get me wrong here, I'm not saying this film is just an inhuman exercise in screen violence, in fact it is much less so than quite a few mainstream genre movies, but it is the portrayal of an extremely cold and calculating man with a tendency to ultraviolence - and because the film succeeds exceptionally well in bringing its main character across, it's also pretty disturbing.

Recommended ... though probably not for everybody.
