Synopsis

In the center of a monotonous-like subdivision, Sarah and Patrick have been living with their emotions kept isolated between themselves and their son. Patrick seems to be cold and harsh by ignoring Sarah's existence, and the affection Patrick once had for her has all but disappeared. It comes to the point that his sexual urges are manifested in his actions toward his son, Joey. Sarah is left in bewilderment when she hears the discussion of her husband and son at nighttime; she even asks herself, "What have I done?" When Sarah has run out of options for trying to bring back the spark in their marriage, she tries to do the unthinkable. In the end, Sarah ends up cutting her lips off to please her husband, which apparently does the trick; in the final scene, the two have tearful sex while Patrick cuts off Sarah's breast and his own penis.

  • Recognition

    Anita Gates of New York Times wrote of the film "scenes are almost unwatchable but have a curious, grotesque power", and of Buck's work, "There is a sober intelligence behind his low-budget gore, but its shrill excess drowns out the ring of truth". Brian Bertoldo of Film Threat wrote that the film "brings the viewer into a nightmare of insanity and mutilation as a married couple come apart at the seams", and noting that while real suburbia horror is almost too common to be a horror theme, "What does work is the gory execution, that's not something you'll see on the 11 o'clock news."
