    Solid entry Zaza. Don't know that I can really add much other than echo what others have said. But I really liked the 70's exploitation feel, I think you nailed that aspect. To me though this definitely seemed to drag on a bit and think it could be much more impacting with a few minutes shaved offed the edit. I really liked the intro and end music and the spinning wheel shot.
    I did however think the lighting in the barn was too bright, now I don't mean overexposed, I mean it all felt too bright for the mood of what was happening. I also got a little lost with the reveal at the end. Overall though a nice entry that really felt like a 70's exploitation film.

    Hey, Zaz, finally getting the computer to cooperate.

    Seems I recognize the actress from Miss Laid?

    Love the 'mars invades' title opening. Kinda threw me back to 50s/60s sci-fi creep stuff.

    Not really diggin' the opening with the flower sniffing and such. Reminds me of a Stay Free commercial. I think too, you can chop a few seconds from the ride/follow. The hit is pretty much telegraphed, so just get to it! Love the hit 'n scream, and the spinning wheel. Nice sound on the clicking.

    Sweet job on the make up, scrapes and road burn.

    Nice spook on the eye. Yikes! But why is her lip bleed missing in that chained-leg scene?

    My rod, my staff? Funny.

    Bits of choppy edit very effective.

    Wow, cool ending. Not sure what made her like that - or she already was? - but nothing beats sweet revenge.

    Nice job, Joe. I think an adjustment up front, maybe a metaphor of sorts, is needed, but this has creepy written all over it.

    Alex

    That is the first of three flashbacks, when she awakes after being picked up by the van... pay closer attention Alex!

    Yes, well your work always demands close attention - in a good way. I know I'll need to watch it a few+ times to catch all the Zaza-isms. Where have I seen those gnomes before? Seems they were in another film??

    And - what exactly did she bite? Is it what I think?

    All I've seen in the last week are after effects screens. Probably way past the point of healthy.

    Im gonna carve out some time to watch this and others. Hopefully soon!

    So was this a set up or did he just happen to capture a monster that enjoys being tortured and raped before she eats? You certainly got that grungy vibe all sticky over this. Story was a little slap dash, but a good Zaza effort. You know you're a freak right? And I mean that in a good way.

    Thanks Chris...and yes, I've been told that all my life. Maybe this will help:

    It was a beautiful summer morning in the Backton County Township,
    a day like any other, and Jamie decided to take a leisurely bike ride.

    Jehovah was a religious man, raised in a strict puritan home by an
    abusive mother, and he had a mission to cleanse the world of its sinners
    & ‘evil doers’, no matter how twisted his methods may be.

    Bike ride gone bad, Jamie finds herself held captive and the center
    of Jehovah’s cleansing ritual. Little did she know of the horrors that
    awaited her... horrors that bring out the beast within. Driven to the
    very edge, she gives in and the hunter becomes the prey.

    Dude, that is sick! If I read that as a potential renter or buyer, I would nab it up.
