Watch Raze movie by Josh C. Waller begins very powerful: A woman wakes up in a red -lit place, while it tumbles through a corridor, she lets her date with a nice guy reminisce and remember how they attacked later in her apartment and was stunned. She meets a woman and this is suddenly in a circular brick wall “Arena”. As her opponent by attacking unexpectedly, the kidnapping victim is aware of the seriousness of the situation.
Although this first sequence to Roger Corman’sches exploitation cinema already warned – because, of course, both women are attractive and wear the ultimate cliché of a garment Action-/Horror-Heroine (the white tank top) – it would be due to the oppressive atmosphere of intense drama performance and the surprising outcome and the vague hints about a sadistic organization are quite as thrilling short film.
But unfortunately it is the first of a series of similar, consistently made worse with action-oriented computer game dramaturgy and aesthetics. In addition there are pathos and trashy prison movie moments.
As an avid researcher wants Subtext is too fond of discovering anything of importance in this work. Feminist empowerment, to record on – because of course there will be a rebellion. Alice Schwarzer would “Raze” but probably would not like it really.
Hard to say what performance you should find the worst: The Bailey Anne Borders as a sniveling blonde with Bambi look? Or perhaps rather by Doug Jones, which interprets the organizational leaders hardly threatening, but mainly weird – ridiculous? No, ultimately deserves the medal for the worst performance probably Sherilyn Fenn. This tries to Bette Davis -like overacting – and thereby fails duly because she is the one too young and the other much too dull for this specialist role.
