SYNOPSIS:

Acclaimed genre director Ti West and master of horror Eli Roth join forces to deliver a frightening new cinematic experience.

Film Review: Baise Moi (2000)

baise-moi-4

SYNOPSIS:

Not for the faint-hearted. Baise-Moi, literally translated as ‘Fuck Me’, defies categories – it features p*rnographic sex scenes & violent shootings, but it won’t fit anyone’s definition of an erotic thriller. After separately committing murders, two French women (Karen Lancaume & RaffaĂ«la Anderson) join together in a spree of crime & sex.

Because both have endured abuse at the hands of men, the movie seems to start as a self-righteous … Continue reading
