The film features some bloody lustful erotic scenes that the horror fan in me would love to see more of. The seemingly drug crazed glimpses tell a story on there own nestled into the movie. As the journey continues on between the Rocker and Stranger the underlying question is what would you do to have everything you dreamed of. What would you sacrifice and what price would you pay. Without giving any spoilers this movie satisfies yet leaves you curious. It also features a band The Mulberry Purple that is pretty damn good if I say so myself. check this short film out and if you agree with me lets hope that director Blake Vaz makes his deal with the devil so we can see more from him on screen.
