Graphic Sexual Horror takes a peek behind the terrifying facade behind the most notorious of bondage websites, exploring the dark mind of its artistic creator and asking hard questions about personal responsibility. Interviews reveal deep fascinations with bondage and sadomasochism that run parallel, and in fact become irreversibly entwined with the lure of money.
Ok...so this isn't really a Horror film, but it does center around a very Horrible subject matter. The subject matter is a little too extreme for me, so while I can't call this film good, I can definitely say it is a very well made film. The interviews with the creator and the website's models are very interesting. Hearing the model's stories of how they got involved with this website is a real eye opener. Some claim they actually gained pleasure from the acts that were put upon them, but you have to wonder how anyone could enjoy some of this stuff. To see the footage of the modes writhing in pain during a "torture" session, and then seeing them afterwords just chatting and laughing like she didn't do anything out of the ordinary is hard to believe. Of course, to someone that is an active participant in the BDSM culture, I guess this would be just a normal occurrence. To someone like me who is not familiar (or interested) in this culture, it seemed very extreme and disturbing.
Some of the contraptions and situations that the models are put in make for some very squeamish viewing for the viewer, or for this viewer at least. It really makes me wonder how, and why, this site was so popular. Suffocation, caning, electrocution....that is not my idea of a good time. I will take a simple dinner and movie any day!
Some will enjoy this film, some will be appalled by it....some will do both. It is a very well made film from a technical standpoint, and it is always interesting to learn about a lifestyle different from yours, even if it is of the extreme kind.
