Pimped

Two twisted housemates lure an unbalanced woman into a sexual trap in this Australian thriller from debut feature director David Barker.

"A modern transgressive thriller in the style of Brian De Palma, this Hitchcocktail of elevated suspense and shock begins when Sarah Montrose meets the philosophical, smooth-talking Lewis Blake. Handsome and captivating, Lewis is the bait in a sick and twisted game conjured up with his low-life-rich-kid house mate, Kenneth. When the men’s sexual game backfires with wild abandon. Sarah is forced into an unlikely and bloodied alliance, her fragile psyche threatened by a monster, she calls on all her strength and cunning to do battle with a psychopath, and her own inner demon."

Sex, murder and dark secrets are the ingredients of David Barker's psychological thriller that starts with promise but spirals into no-man's land when credibility becomes stretched.
