Scar (2007)

   Joan Burrows (Angela Bettis) returns to her hometown to visit her brother Jeff (Christopher Titus) and niece Olympia (Kirby Bliss Blanton) where several years earlier, as a teenager, she and a friend were held captive and tortured by a sadistic funeral home owner.
   In 1991 Ovid, Colorado seventeen year old's Joan (Brittney Wilson) and Susie (Tegan Moss) are smoking a joint in the graveyard and decide to go spy on Bishop (Ben Cotton) who runs the local funeral home.They appear to have a crush on him for some strange reason (Come on girls...really?He wears a beret and plays with dead people all day...crushing on a mortician is too creepy even for me!). Bishop startles the girls just as they're about to peep through his windows and Joan gets a nasty scrape on her knee which prompts Bishop to invite them in so that he can "bandage Joan's knee" (Wow, I'm pretty sure that at 17 you can bandage your own knee Joan... slut.). Bishop uses chloroform to knock the girls out and takes them to the basement where he begins to torture them when they regain consciousness.He goes back and forth between the girls torturing one to try to get her to tell him to kill the other.Susie is the recipient of most of the torture and I cringed when Bishop poured rubbing alcohol all over the many huge gashes he cut into her legs.After Susie's tongue is cut out and he moves on to torturing Joan again she consents to him killing Susie.Joan later escapes and kills Bishop by stabbing him with a trocar which is used to drain bodily fluids from corpses.When Joan returns to Ovid,many years later, it appears that her niece Olympia's friends are being murdered by a Bishop copycat killer and suspicions are directed toward Joan.
   There is some impressive gore in Scar.As far as the plot is concerned it was somewhat predictable, it doesn't take you long to figure out who the killer is.Although it was pretty much your typical "who done it" slasher film, it was entertaining.Netflix rated Scar 2.8 out of 5 stars but I'll up that to 3 for torture and gore!

  1. I have made all my films for my children with the exception of my first film because my oldest daughter wasn't born when I was making the film about the Brooklyn Bridge.
