This movie is the reason why I would LOVE to have Debbie Rochon direct our full feature! I love the way how she captured 2 different stories and piece them together.
First, you have Ginny (Lynn Lowry), the look of the next door neighbor grandmother. The kind of person that is so friendly and acts as the 'neighborhood mom'... so sweet & innocent with a southern charm. On the other side is a 'tough-rugged bad ass' Debbie (Tiffany Shepis).
Debbie and her husband Sal (Carmine Capobianco) just moved next door to Ginny. While Sal is out working Debbie stays home and she knows something just isn't right with Ginny no matter how sweet & innocent she looks and the obsession to find out what Ginny's activities are begin to grow.
Ginny was a former model years ago but was cast aside due to her body. Ginny did not handle the rejection well. Over the years, she became more psychotic and is now a cannibalistic mass murderer that focuses on killing the young women. Oh she will kill a man... but she LOVES the girls! Maybe it's something in the taste of them... or a part... Ginny did seem to have way too much fun cutting off a clitorus and eating it raw while the victim is alive.
The second story started in the background as a 'reality tv show' called "Suzi's Secrets" that starts off as just Ginny's favorite show. Suzi (Suzi Lorraine) who at first thought it was Rose McGowan dressed in a 'fat suit'. The "show" is all about the beautifulness of being big and selling sexy clothes for the big beautiful women. At first the show was pretty basic and showing a model (Babette Bombshell) doing more or less easy things like eating a donought in a sexy way or modeling off an outfit.
After Sal is killed in a mysterious accident, Debbie's obsession with Ginny intensifies leaving Debbbie constantly thinking about Ginny. She has to know "Ginny's secret". I got the feeling tha "Suzi's Secret' felt the levels build and become more outrageous themselves. Soon it's every characters favorite show - it's in the background in a majority of shots. It feels that it intertwines with the movie creating a higher intensity level leaving you almost at the edge of your seat by the end of the film. I love the way it was done! Between Debbie's obsession with Ginny and Ginny's obsession with torturing and killing, only one can survive... but who?
However, there is a scene where Ginny has Colin (Brian Fortune) tied down on a table taughnting him. When the camera is on Colin, everything is good. When it shifts to looking at Ginny, the camera shook. After the screening,, I asked Debbie about that. She said that it was looking at Ginny from Colin's POV and he was shaking his head no... which I can understand. However, my eyes can't take that kind of motion sometimes... it really fucks with my head so this particular critque is more on a personal level. But,for someone else, that scene might be fine.
Overall, I thoughly enjoyed this movie and have added it to our collection. This will surely be rewatched over and over!
