Killer Bodies: The Awakening
Spoiled trophy wife Tori Black gets kidnapped and has her spirit broken in a basement prison by a bunch of sickos. Is this a documentary about the porn industry? No, it’s an interactive smut thriller about a cult of brainwashing thugs who’ve obviously watched A Clockwork Orange too many times. Trotting out everything from electroshock torture to simulated snuff, this cold-hearted flick is often more creepy than arousing—unless you’re into that kind of thing. Thanks to her ordeal, Tori turns into some sort of mind-controlled sex assassin who fucks her abuser. This is basically the twisted, phony fantasy at the heart of the porn biz: abuse is the path to female empowerment. Yep, psychos can rationalize anything. But can you stroke to it? In its better moments, Killer Bodies has a certain S&M charm, even if its fuck scenes could have been more inventive to measure up to the rest of the movie’s high ambitions. As for the interactive thing, don’t let it scare you. It just means you can choose which cumsucker you want to watch, which is kind of what you do with every porn movie anyway. If this disc is The Awakening, looks like the rest of the day is going to be a bitch.
