You know a movie is scary when the main marketing and buzz surrounding the film is about a scene in which a main character beats the crap out of some dude. No, not just a beating, she beats the hell out of his balls. That's right, that's the worst thing that any guy could have happen, and the clip is definitely hard to watch. The film, which made its way through the film festival circuit is not exactly the most publicized film of its kind, and if it did get a theatrical release, I didn't really hear about it, but it's coming to dvd on June 17, 2008. On The Doll's official website describes the film as such:
On The Doll is a story of the victims of child abuse, and the pain
it visits upon their later lives. With interweaving stories following victims and victimizers, the film depicts the variety of experiences
of abuse. Utilizing a young cast of up and coming actors including Brittany Snow and Josh Janowicz, the characters wander through their disaffected lives searching for meaning, while falling into patterns that lead to more pain. The first feature by acclaimed music video director Thomas Mignone, On The Doll is beautifully shot yet emotionally wrenching, and sure to hit a powerful chord in its viewers.
I'm not sure what to say to that, but the trailer sheds some light on the subject below:
The film On The Doll, looks to be one of the craziest films set to dvd in a long time. I'm not sure if this is necessarily a straight up horror film, as much as it is some sort of psychological thriller, but it's sure not going to be missed amongst horror movie and grindhouse circles. By the looks of things, it almost appears as though Andrew Blake filmed this one, but then it turns into a korn video...so I'm not sure what to think just yet. This one is definitely worth putting into the Netflix que, that's for sure.
