Movie: Someone’s Knocking at the Door
The images in each frame captivate, and each character is a junky. But they’re really medical students. Errr... something sounds incongruous there, right? But director Chad Ferrin weaves a tale so far out, then beautifully piece them together like a harmonizing tapestry of psychedelia – and we have a work that defies genre!
Here are ingredients to this scrumptious broth: A junky gets raped to death (“… by a phallus 15 inches long that perforated his colon”). Soon thereafter, his mates follow suit! You bet, everyone that croaks gets “raped” – guy or girl! Then we get a flashback of these sex-crazed med students – they uncover a video and sound recording of a bungled hypnosis experiment which involved a pair of schizophrenic serial killers. Add a dash of a hallucinogen to the broth. The film is absolutely entertaining and mortifying. Some scenes are in fact too disturbing.
Moreover, the film’s cast is easy on the eyes: Noah Segan, Andrea Rueda, Jon Budinoff, Silvia Spross, and Jordan Lawson (who gets to lie down “dead” and naked through most of his screen time)!
With lots of sex and naked bodies, you somehow wonder if Russ Meyer had a hand in the film production!
