I liked this a lot, even though I agree with the statement that the movie had no idea where it was going. Really, there's not a lot of movies about body modification, so the Soskas were kind of blazing a trail here. And that's a good thing. But yes, their inexperience shows.

Even without the issues of where the film goes, it's worth watching for Katharine Isabelle alone. And not just for her looks (although she is damn good looking, even with those hideous bangs), but it's her performance that really stands out. I loved the wry humor of her character, as she seems pretty ok with the new direction of her medical career.

I'll give the audio commentary a listen before it goes back to Netflix, but I thought the DVD was kind of murky. How does the Blu Ray look? I don't know why Neflix only carries the SD DVD and not the Blu on this particular title.

I dug it. Went it somewhat blind actually - I think I just happened to come across the DVD artwork while looking for something else and decided to give it a try. It'd different, raunchy, sexy, creepy and violent - me likey

Oh yeah, and Beatrice is indeed whack.

This just became available on Netflix Streaming for any of those interested. This will give me a chance to see if I want to purchase the blu.

I generally liked it, but it kind of seemed like a movie from 15-20 years ago.

I just found out Katherine Isabel is in this movie.

Will be watching it. (That's all it takes.)

I saw this this week and really enjoyed it. My only criticism is that the story feels a bit rushed in places, a bit more exploration might have paid off, but it's still solid. And Katherine Isabelle really turned in a great performance.
