Ladies and Gentlemen we are so honored I guess to have Adam Casto of Nerd Table return and give us another review. If you live in Ohio, you know the man, myth and legend of who Nerd Table is. If you do not have a copy of their last cd, Chasing the Bronco with features yours truly, Rodleen Getsic of this film and so many more guests, buy the cd now and play it loud and proud and tell your parents if it is too loud they are too old, or something like that. If you dig this review, and want to find out more about Casto and his band he is all over the Facebook plastering pages with his love of Nirvana and Stone Temple Pilots. All jokes aside, enjoy this review and it is always awesome to have him stop in and drop us some review on a film that he has watched.
The Bunny Game-Adam Casto
The Bunny Game is a warped tale of a prostitute who is kidnapped, raped and tortured by a diabolical trucker. There were many times while I was watching the film where I felt very uncomfortable and even squeamish. Rodleen Getsic gives a hauntingly convincing performance in her portrayal of the hooker (Bunny). The beginning has sort of a documentary vibe that really sets the stage for the whole movie. It is so believable. I mean within minutes Bunny is performing graphic oral sex, snorting cocaine and prowling the streets for johns. As if that is not bad enough things get worse for Bunny when she approaches a psychotic trucker beautifully played by Jeff Renfro (Hog). Hog lives in what seems to be an alternate reality in his own mind; delighting himself with shockingly perverse torture techniques. Director Adam Rehmeier had a clear vision of what he wanted to do here. Stark visuals, deep mood changing scenes that really grab you, creepy music setting the tone perfectly – All wrapped up into the ultimate story of survival. I highly recommend this movie to anyone that is tired of the same old same old. I have never seen a film like it. Some people I know could not even get through it because it was so much to take in. It was even banned in the UK. Everyone knows the best art is the art that moves you and this one made a huge impact on me. I won’t forget it.
