Dramatic features that emerge from U.S. film schools rarely suffer from low production values, but they often lack any authentic point of view or connection to real experience. This horror item by Joe Maggio is a prime example of the style that Dave Kehr has dubbed “NYU Beige,” nicely shot but indigestible as storytelling. A caricature of a pompous chef kidnaps a caricature of a self-pitying food critic for some creative torture in the woods. Despite a few “character-building” scenes straight from a screenwriter’s handbook, neither lead registers as a person or even a societal archetype, which has the virtue of making the numerous torture scenes easier to enjoy as purely technical exercises.
